Win a Signed Puddle of Mudd Guitar from the Birdhouse Collection

Just when you thought the Birdhouse Collection couldn’t get any weirder, now the group is raffling off a guitar signed by forgettable mid-generation nu-rockers Puddle of Mudd. (All the Birdhouse members have also signed the guitar, rendering it all but un-re-sellable, if you were planning to hit eBay on the way out.)

As for how this guitar came into the group’s possession, says k i d s’ Jared Collins: “Samford [of RITVALS] owns it for some insane reason.” So, there you go.

Tickets for the raffle are $1, and will be available tonight and at each of the collective’s Wednesday night showcases this month at Flicker Theatre & Bar. Along with the sweet signed axe, the winner will receive “a very short private party with RITVALS,” so there’s that.

Three runner-ups wil also win prizes of varying worth, including a private party with Muuy Biien/RITVALS member Xander Witt, a high-five and a pack of smokes. View the rules and regulations (they’re surprisingly detailed) on the collective’s website.
