Dan Deacon is heading back out on tour next week with Nuclear Power Pants. Deacon, who is also a visual artist, is combining both of his passions into one big contest for fans (or those just trying to get some extra cash).


To celebrate the upcoming release of his album, Bromst, Deacon had the company Post Typography design an amazing new poster which includes 243 cartoon characters. In order to win this contest, your job is to ID all of the characters portrayed within the poster—be the first one to get them all correct and an amazing prize package awaits you! The contest ends at midnight, November 17.


THE PRIZE:


1. $500 cash
2. A portrait of you painted by Dan Deacon
3. One of the last copies of Wham City Box set #1
4. A copy of each of Dan Deacon’s first 8 impossible-to-find releases


Send your submissions to: postercontest@whamcity.com
