Spread the BACKYARD TIRE FIRE free music giveaway:

Backyard Tire Fire will rock The Mint on Tuesday, 3/2 (Tix+Info).

BTF’s play here is the first of their first West Coast tour in over two years in support of their new record, Good to Be.  The album was produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin, who also played on every track.

The Offer: Backyard Tire Fire is offering a free mp3 of both the single “Good to Be” as well as an exclusive original demo recording of the song to help spread the word about the tour.
  • In order to receive the mp3s you’ll need to tell 5 friends who you know will most likely dig hearing about the band and live in these markets about the tour.  Don’t piss anyone off!
  • Spread the word via email, Facebook, Myspace or any other social networking medium.
  • Once you’ve informed 5 friends about the shows just email with info on who you told (names and cities) and you’ll be emailed a download link for the mp3s.
