2012 LITA Road Trip — Seat In The Van WINNER!

It’s a busy time here at LITA. Both the Seattle and LA offices are in full overdrive gearing up for our two anniversary shows (LA is SOLD OUT and Seattle is quick to follow, so grab those tix before they are gone!) not to mention the epic road trip. Oh yeah…the road trip, that’s only 4 DAMN DAYS AWAY!!! So we’d better stop beating around the bush and go ahead and announce the winner already.

That said, let’s first start off by saying thanks so much for all the entries.  In total we got around three dozen emails and we were blown away by your letters, which came from as far away as Australia, Portugal, and the Middle East. We spent hours this weekend reading and rereading all of the entries and it was a difficult choice to pick the right person that was willing to submit themselves to such a torturous journey. Our hearts are warmed by all the love sent our way. And with this, we give you the winner of the seat in the van: Matt Snodgrass from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

When reading Matt’s letter, we were beyond touched by his passion for all things LITA, and knew he would be the right fit to join us in the van. We recognized Matt’s name right off the bat, as he’s been a loyal LITA vinyl subscriber from day one, and has continuously been atop the totem pole spreading the LITA gospel throughout the fine state of Oklahoma. Also, Matt has NEVER been to the West Coast! Matt will be taking two weeks off work (lucky he hadn’t already used his precious vacation days), and we’re overly joyed he’ll be joining us on the road trip!

So we’d better get back to work. We’ve got a lot of packing to do! Be sure to follow the road trip on the official Tumblr page, Twitter (#litaroadtrip2012) and Instagram (@lightintheatticrecords) where we’ll be posting all the minute-by-minute shenanigans. Keep an eye out for flash sales at random rest stops and photos/videos from the road.
