The boys are hitting the road again tomorrow, and once again with help from Cindy Royal we’ve set up spots on Gowalla for every show. When you get to a show, look for the special Old 97’s spot, check in and win a free download of a rare demo from the band. Check in at three or more shows and you’ll get the “Head West with Old 97’s” virtual pin for your Gowalla passport.

If you’re not on Gowalla, it’s easy to join:

1. Download the Gowalla app for your smartphone. It’s available on iPhone, Android and many other services.

2. Set up a login and password.

3. Make sure you are following Old 97’s on Gowalla. Go to gowalla.com/old97s and click “Add As Friend.” Or visit gowalla.com/trips/31986 and choose “Bookmark This Trip.” You must either follow the band or bookmark the trip to be eligible for the pin.

4. When you’re at a show, look for the special Old 97′s event spots and check in. You’ll then be able to see which other fans have checked in at the show. And please help spread the love by broadcasting your check-in to Twitter or Facebook, uploading photos, and making comments. You can share the experience and help get the word out at the same time.

5. When you get home, you’ll have an email waiting for you with a free rare demo download.

Not going to be at the show? You’re still in luck. You can follow the action by visiting the Gowalla event spot during or after the show to see the check-ins and enjoy the photos and comments.
