Our IndieFest madness continues today, as we have a TOTAL SHITLOAD of passes to give away for the San Francisco Independent Film Festival opening night party, which is TONIGHT.

indiefestparty1.jpgBands Gooferman, Kid Beyond, and Smash-Up Derby will be hitting the stage at DNA at or around 9 PM.

I asked IndieFest’s fearless leader, Jeff Ross, Why is this party the place to be on Thursday? If this weren’t your fest, would you still be going to this party? Why?

His response:

1) Look at these bands. Live mash-ups. A world renowned beat boxer debuting his new band (!) Plus klown-fi big top/hyper-funk excess. Do you not think this is going to be a fun as all get out party?

2) See above.

So enter below to win passes for you and a pal — we’ll let you know if you won by 2 PM today. And if you don’t, well, pony up the 10 bucks and buy them at the door. See you there!

NOT SO FINE PRINT: Enter using your full (not just first, dummy) real name, you’ll need it to get in the door. Winners will be alerted this afternoon, so use an email address you check. Neither your name nor your email address will be displayed, we promise.

What: San Francisco Independent Film Festival opening night party
When: Thursday, February 4, 9 PM
Where: DNA (375 11th, between Folsom and Harrison)
Tickets: If you don’t win, they’re $10 at the door
