FLASHBACK FOTO: Name the Band! Win a Prize!

Flashback Foto

Yea! We had another winner in last week’s contest!

It’s FLASHBACK FOTO Thursday once again, and we went digging, digging, digging through the vast Nippertown archive bunker to unearth yet another fabulous band promo photo from years gone by.

Thanks to the fine folks at the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany, we’re giving away a FREE PAIR OF MOVIE PASSES to the 8th commenter who correctly identifies this band. Please keep in mind that all of the weekly Flashback Fotos are of local Nippertown bands of yesteryear, which should help steer you away from guesses like Ultravox, Under the Influence of Giants or Ugly Kid Joe.

To make it fair, comments on this post won’t show up until we announce the winner on Tuesday afternoon. One comment per person, please, and be sure to leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Good luck!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, there was no winner this week, despite the fact that we would have accepted two different band names – City Lights (the band’s original name) and Urban Gumbo (the band’s later name) – as correct answers. (In fact, the photo that we have has an “Urban Gumbo” sticker slapped on over the original City Lights name that was printed on the photo.) Oh well… Better luck next time – which will be Thursday, when we crank up the next Flashback Foto contest.
