TICKET GIVEAWAY: party with The Donnas

Another Austin is Burning hosted TICKET GIVEAWAY!
Scroll down to see how you can participate!

+I consider the music of The Donnas a sort of soundtrack to my adolescence. Growing up, who didn't want to be a rebellious, pretty girl, essentially be like a Donna? They also show up in some of our favorite girly films of the late 90s and 00s. I am excited to tell you all that The Donnas are coming to Austin to play at the Endless Beauty launch party, at Seaholm Power Plant, this Saturday. I know I would love to go, so hopefully some of you readers would similarly like to attend!

Look at all that amazing hair

+Tickets are $24 if purchased on and $30 at the door. I know for some of us (me) this is a little steep, which is why I am hosting a ticket giveaway so that you can have a chance to attend, free of charge.

+To enter, all you have to do is:
1. Leave a comment telling me what your adolescent soundtrack consisted of,
2. And your first name/last initial and your e-mail address, so I can contact you!

My adolescent soundtrack includes anything by Sarah McLachlan and Alannis Morissette. I'm a little older than you. ;)

My adolescent soundtrack would be...
1. Alanis Morissette- One hand in my Pocket, or anything off of Jagged Little Pill
2. Beck- New Pollution, I remember this song coming out at the same time as Austin Powers and I was obsessed!!
3. Britney Spears- Baby One More Time, what girl in the 90s didn't love this song!
4.Cake- Short Skirt/ Long Jacket, my jam of the 7th grade, I would wait up all night for the video to come on MTV because it was just AMAZING!
5. Crystal Waters- 100% Pure Love, my mom was really into the 90s dance scene, so this was always playing around my house
6. The Cure- Friday I'm in Love
7. Hole- Malibu
8. Hootie and The Blowfish- I Only Wanna be with You
9. Ludacris- Whats Your Fantasy, I still ask myself why on earth was this my favorite song in the 6th grade and why did my parents allow me to listen to it! I can still sing every word though!!
10. Blink 182- All the Small Things, This video premiered on TRL the day before I moved to Texas, Mark Hoppus was my first love.
11. Anything Peal Jam, my older brothers and sisters were in high school when I was in elementary so they would force to listen to PJ, now I appreciate it so much more!
12. Prince- Little Red Corvette, again my mom was the BIGGEST Prince fan
13. Seal- Kiss from a Rose, Batman & Robin anyone?
14. Spice Girls- Wannabe, yes I was a tiny Bopper!
15. Third Eye Blind- Semi- Charmed Life, what kid in the 90s/00s didn't love TEB?
16. Something Corporate- I Woke Up in a Car, In middle school I was such a little skater chick all I wore was Roxy and yes I went to Warped Tour...

I could make this list go on FOREVER but I'll stop here!

Wow Britta, that is quite a comprehensive list. As in, that is an entire soundtrack in itself. I hope you make this soon so you can actually relive your adolescence. I relate a lot with many of your examples, actually.

Good answers

Megan, I was also probably a bit more musically challenged. You seemed to have skipped the tacky music phase.


Sara said...

My adolescent soundtrack consisted of some of the older Donnas song's actually and anything that my parent's at the time called "Noise" Haha.

Get rid of That Girl-The Donnas
40 Boys in 40 night-The Donnas
Zero-The Donnas
Take it Off-The Donnas
Too Bad about Your Girl-The Donnas
Only Happy When it Rains-Garbage
Push It-Garbage
Don't Speak-No Doubt
Spiderwebs-No Doubt
Have a Drink on Me-AC/DC
You Outta Know-Alanis Morrisette
Univited-Alanis Morrisette
Freak on a Leash-Korn
One way or Another-Blondie

I know my list is pretty flexibe with different kinds of music but I was known as a "different" teenanger. I played those song's over and over again. Loved and it helped me get through my wierd teenage high school years.
