All right, here’s the deal: People who lived in NYC and the
ATL got hooked up with all sorts of free swag at VIP
parties during the holidays. Now, it’s the West Coast’s turn – SF and LA,
prepare to “DISCOVER THE MUSIC AROUND YOU!”
OK, hype aside, this is actually worth checking out. If only
for a chance to get out of the house and hang with fellow music-loving nerds
that want to score downloads courtesy of Universal Music Group and techno-loot
from HP. If only I could pull away from WoW:
Catacylsm long enough….
Random aside: I don’t know why, but when I put together
these party posts, I think of those skits from SNL with Seth Meyer interviewing
Stefon (Bill Hader).
ANYhow, I was handed the prize and party location
information. Read on, friends.
Prizes in Los Angeles
and San Francisco:
on Loopt and get 5 free song downloads, courtesy of HP, from artists such as
Don Omar, Neyo, Black Eyed Peas, Neon Trees, Plain White T’s, Keri Hilson,

sweepstakes at the party for the chance to win an HP Envy 14 Notebook with
