Anyone going to the KGSR show in Austin this Friday has a chance to win a t-shirt via Gowalla. Details courtesy Cindy Royal:

Here’s another chance to win on Gowalla with Old 97’s, this time in
Austin. This Friday, the Old 97’s headline the KGSR 20th Anniversary
Party at the Texas Union Ballroom. Joining the 97’s are Quiet Company,
Alpha Rev and Joe Ely, making for a pretty awesome holiday gathering. If
you were lucky enough to win tickets (see, then be sure to
check in with Gowalla and upload pictures at the show, because your luck
could continue. Upload photos on Gowalla, and you could win an Old 97’s
t-shirt. And EVERYONE who uploads a photo will get a download link for a very special exclusive MP3!

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

1. Download the Gowalla app for your smartphone. It’s available on
iPhone (featuring brand new Version 3), Android and many other services.

2. Set up a login and password.

3. When you’re at the KGSR show on Friday, Dec. 17, look for the special
Old 97′s event spot and check in. You can also choose to broadcast your
check-in to other social networking sites like Twitter or Facebook.
After you check in, be sure to also upload photos because that’s how you open the MP3 link and get a chance to win the t-shirt. And you can make comments and see which other fans have checked in at the show. It’s a fun way to share the Old 97′s concert experience!
