Friday Round-Up: Telluride Blues and Brews Contest + Beats

Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. It’s September and we’re living it up for all we’re worth this month to take advantage of these last days of summer. What is crucial to living it up in style? A really great playlist… so we’re dedicating this month to music. Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!

One of our favorite late summer events is Telluride Blues and Brews, a festival just a hop, skip and a boogie north of us here at Osprey HQ. We’re psyched to be a returning sponsor of the event and even more psyched to head to the festival in a couple of weeks to throw down with some incredible musicians.

In anticipation of the festival, we’ve decided to giveaway a festival pass along with some sweet Osprey travel gear! All you have to do, is answer a few trivia questions…

1. What TV show did The Flaming Lips do a quest appearance on the in the early 1990’s?

2. How many breweries participate in the Grand Tasting on day two of the festival? a.) 20 to 30, b.) 35 to 45, c.) 50 to 60, or d.) More than 75

3. At last Blues and Brew festival, the crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to one of the featured artists, who was it and how old did he or she turn?

Please post your answers in a comment on this page. On Tuesday, September 6, we’ll pick one lucky person to win a pass to Telluride Blues and Brews, a Flap Jill/Jack festival pack and a Vector 22 wheeled travel bag! You’ve only got a few days to win, so hop to it!

NOTE: The winner of this contest must be able to attend the Blues and Brews festival this year, so please only enter if you’re excited about traveling to the festival. Travel and lodging is not covered by the festival pass.

Excited? Yeah, we thought so. Here’s a great Friday playlist from some of this year’s Blues and Brews featured artists to get you grooving!
