Hey everybody, it’s time to freeeeee base this Friday!

For example: “Songs That Wouldn’t Exist Without The Stone Roses,” or “Songs That I Listened To Along With The Stone Roses While Lying On My Bedroom Floor In The Nineties,” etc.

Send the link to your playlist, your name, and a description of your playlist to with subject STONE ROSES PLAYLIST. We’ll pick two winners who will have a choice of receiving either Stone Roses S/T or Turns Into Stone!

You have until next Friday to convert your nostalgia into an awesome mixtape.

Podcast Trivia RSD Giveaway!

Friday, May 1st, 2015

 free base

In honor of our brand spankin’ new LITA Podcast and because so many of y’alls have been asking where you can get Shogun Assassin and Teatro now that RSD has passed, we’re holding a trivia contest based on Episode 1 of the podcast so we can give a few copies out for free! For a chance to win Shogun or Teatro, listen to the podcast and answer the below trivia questions + a bonus question in an email to SOCIAL@LIGHTINTHEATTIC.NET (Hint- there’s one question per segment):

  1. Shogun: What track from the Shogun soundtrack did we preview a snippet of on the podcast (not the song that’s playing in the movie trailer)?
  2. Teatro: In how many days was Teatro recorded?
  3. The Zine: Which LITA ‘wordsmith’ coined the term “Behind The Bulb”?
  4. In a fight to the death between Lone Wolf (the shogun’s assassin) and Willie Nelson, who would win and how?

You must answer the 3 trivia questions correctly to qualify and then out of those who qualify, we’ll pick our top 3 favorite creative responses to question 4 as the winners, who can then request either Shogun or Teatro as their prize! And each winner will receive a complimentary LITA zine.

Put in them earbuds and have a listen to the podcast in the audio player below, on iTunes, at this link, or on our SoundCloud or YouTube pages.

Free Basin’ Friday | Tinariwen – “The Radio Tisdas Sessions” LP Giveaway!

Friday, September 12th, 2014


Happy Friday! We’ve got an awesome Free Basin’ Friday giveaway for you. This week we’re offering up a copy of our forthcoming release, Tinariwen‘s The Radio Tisdas Sessions! Issued here for the first time on vinyl, The Radio Tisdas Sessions marks the point at which the band first made strides to global acclaim. Where previous albums had been issued only on cassette for regional markets, The Radio Tisdas Sessions was released on CD and distributed worldwide.


The album’s wild guitar licks, smooth camelback rhythms, and call-and-response vocals sends out some serious summertime vibes, ideal for end of summer BBQs/pool parties and trips to the beach. As summer comes to a close, we all here in the LITA HQ have been reflecting on our favorite summertime albums. So for this week’s give away, we want you to tell us your favorite summer album and any associated stories or anecdotes. Please provide your answers in the comment box below. Winners will be chosen next Friday and notified via email.

The Radio Tisdas Sessions is available in stores September 15th. Also available is Tinariwen’s 2004 release Amassakoul!

It’s Friday, baby! You know what that means, right? Time for some free stuff! This week for Free Basin’ Friday, we’re giving away two kinds of limited edition Big Boys shirts designed by Minor Thread x Light In The Attic (available in sizes S-XL).


Big Boys zealously embraced the DIY punk philosophy and would famously end each show with the foursome shouting, “OK y’all, go start your own band!” So for this week’s give away, we want you to come up with 3 band names for your fictional punk band. Please provide your answers in the comment box below. Winners will be chosen next Friday and notified via email.
