Death Cab For Cutie offer free gig to school that registers most voters

Guitar Hero 2 also up for grabs in voter registration competition

Death Cab For Cutie offer free gig to school that registers most voters
A free concert by Death Cab For Cutie is one of the incentives in a competition to get US college students to register to vote before the 2008 presidential election.

The band, which supported Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention in Denver last month, will perform on the college campus that registers the most voters between now and November.

The Ultimate College Bowl is a voter registration competition sponsored by MySpace as well as non-partisan organisations Rock The Vote and Declare Yourself.

The colleges that register the greatest number of voters will also receive Guitar Hero 2 prizes and scholarship money. For more information, visit the Ultimate College Bowl MySpace page.

Meanwhile, as previously reported, Death Cab For Cutie are preparing to kick off tours of the US, UK and Europe this autumn.
