Win an RSD Mystery Box curated by Modern Vinyl [Winner Announced]

Contests / Record Store Day 2014 / April 21, 2014

Over $100 value up for grabs to those with true music knowledge

Every year, Modern Vinyl aims to give away something cool on Record Store Day, as our small “thank you” to everyone who’s supported us in our now 3 years of existence. This year, we’ll be giving away a special box of goodies, valued at over $100 and all centering around our love of music. I’ve personally selected each of the items in the box and some hints regarding what the winner will take home are listed below:

  • A couple full length LPs, both of which are 2014 releases and ones I really love.
  • A great book, detailing relationships, music and how it all connected for one writer.
  • My two favorite music movies of all time, both on blu-ray.
  • A 7″ from one of my favorite up-and-coming bands.
  • A couple RSD 2014 releases.
  • A few other random goodies, which includes some more records from my personal collection.

Now, to enter, we’ll be testing your music and Record Store Day knowledge. I’ve listed 10 questions below, each of which you must answer correctly to be entered into the random drawing. Please use the form below to answer the questions (put answers in the appropriate section, along with 1., 2., etc.). That’s all you need to do to enter.

A winner will be announced on Sunday morning, along with the contents of the box.
