Here’s a contest for you…

Local “antifolk” hero Jeffrey Lewis, an East Village native and frequent Sidewalk Cafe performer, has another record coming out at the end of the month. Dubbed Manhattan, the long-player has some pretty cool cover art (designed by Lewis) that resembles a comic strip. The illustration includes depictions of 27 no-longer-existing Manhattan businesses and other landmarks.

We’ve teamed up with Rough Trade Records to offer a contest for Boogie readers. It’s simple; be the first person to correctly identify all 27 vanished institutions by following this link. Then scroll to the bottom of the page for the contest artwork panels (the subway train).

If nobody correctly identifies all of the locations, the first entrant with the highest number of correct answers will win.

Winners will receive:
– Signed Manhattan LP
– VIP entry to Jeffrey Lewis’s 10/27 performance and art gallery opening at Le Poisson Rouge
– $50 gift certificate to Other Music

Please submit your answers to this address by October 23rd at 5pm EST.

Must be 21 to enter.
