Oh hey, we have 2 tickets to give away to Newport Folk Fest (plus a super exclusive Blind Pilot boat show)...want 'em?


Attention all ya'll who'd already resigned yourselves to spending the weekend of NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL miserable and sweltering in the city while everyone who was faster/smarter/savvier than yourself and got their tickets before they inevitably sold the eff out is off in Rhode Island having a lot more fun than you: We just came into possession of two extra Newport Folk tickets -- courtesy of Swedish shoe company and folk fest sponsor Tretorn® -- and we're prepared to give them away.

Just like that.

‘Cause that's the kind of FOLKs we are.

See what we did there. (Also, we already have our tickets.)

The swag doesn't stop there. Whoever's sweaty palms we decide to bequeath these tix into are also scoring two passes to see Portland, Oregon's BLIND PILOT in a private show the Tretorn peeps are hosting aboard a boat on Newport Harbor (directly following My Morning Jacket's set on Saturday @ 7:45 pm | leaving from Fort Adams - Old Port Dock). So that's pretty cool.

That, plus they're throwing in a couple of pairs of commemorative Newport Folk Fest flip-flops and rubber boots designed just for this year's fest. (They're cool, we've seen them. And durable as shit, which should come in handy for all the drunken festing in a field you'll be doing should you win this thing).

P.S.- Our new Tretorn friends would also like to cordially invite you to come hang at their "Tretorn Backyard" (in the Beer Garden next to Quad Stage) where they'll have beer, yard games (bocce ball, corn hole, etc), and probably (definitely) lawn gnomes and plastic pink flamingos set up for ambiance and stuff.They're giving away 10 additional passes (to existing folk fest ticket-holders) every hour on the hour (100 total) in the Backyard on Saturday -- first 10 people to come by get passes to the Blind Pilot boat show.

So...who wants ‘em? For a chance to win, plz go ahead and post your favorite blind famous person (living or dead, fictional or real) and/or favorite famous pilot (same rules) -- and why -- in the comments. Anyone who manages to come up with a famous guy who flew planes with the aid of a seeing eye pilot dog or something automatically wins. Have at it.  We'll declare a winner for most inventively spun famous blind person and/or pilot by Friday, June 22 at NOON.
