Review concerts for CL and win free tickets

CL's Vibes section has something special in the works: You.

We're reaching out to readers who are interested in being guest critics by writing mini-reviews of local concerts. All submissions will be posted on our music blog for other readers to see. And the writer of the best mini-review (as judged by our editorial staff) will win a pair of tickets to an upcoming concert in Atlanta and the opportunity to be published in print.

Every week, the winning review will be published on our new weekly CL Vibes backpage, which debuts Aug. 6.

All you have to do is write about any concert that takes place in Atlanta this weekend and submit the review by 8 a.m. Monday morning, August 4 in accordance with the rules below.

Here's your chance to make your opinion the only one that matters:

-Word count: Reviews must adhere to 85 words

-Deadline: Email entries to music@creativeloafing.com with the subject line "Reader Review" no later than 8 a.m. Monday morning for consideration.

-Editing: Reviews will be edited for content and grammar.

-No profanity: Unless you're quoting someone else.

-Time span: Reviews must cover live performances that took place in metro Atlanta the weekend (Friday-Sunday) prior to the Monday morning of submission.

-All venues acceptable: All concerts held at any size venue, club, house party, retail location, parking lot, etc. are acceptable.

-Byline: You must submit review with a byline to be considered. All writers will be credited for their reviews.

Here's a little fine print: Readers do not have permission to use Creative Loafing's name to to gain press passes from venues/performers. CL reserves the right to refuse submissions under any circumstances.
