Tell Us Your Favourite Sons and Win!

Oh boy! Contests! This one comes courtesy of Vice Records, and is for two free tickets to Brooklyn band Favourite Sons‘s show at the El Mocambo on Friday Saturday night as well as a copy of the group’s new record, Down Beside Your Beauty. The show also features openers The Drones and Devastations.
For those curious, here are a few MP3s to check out:
Favourite Sons – Hang On, Girl
Favourite Sons – Down Beside Your Beauty
Favourite Sons – No One Ever Dies Young
Favourite Sons – Tall Grass
To win, all you’ve gotta do is post who your favourite famous son (or daughter) is in the comments before Thursday at midnight, and tell us why you love ’em so much. We’re looking for people who are more famous than they should be because of their parents. Answers we will not accept: George W. Bush or Paris Hilton. Too easy.
We’ll pick our favourite entry and get in touch with the winner on Friday. Good luck!
Update: The show got cancelled! Sorry about that. We’re still giving away the CD, though.
