Brooklyn Contest Voting Closing!

Apparently, Brooklyn Brewery has a lot of fans in Sweden. So, they decided to send a pile of some of Brooklyn, NY's best indie rockers to Brooklyn, Sweden for a festival over Labor Day weekend, Aug. 31-Sept. 1!

They also created a contest for local independent songwriters, challenging them to write a song about the G-train (also known as "the G-pain", "the gee, there's no train", "the 'G'-is-not-for-go train," etc. You can hear all the submissions and vote for your favorite on the contest Facebook page, helping to send some lucky up-and-comer to the festival with passes, airfare, lodging and more.

There's also a send-off party with some of the Brooklyn-based bands who will perform at the festival in Sweden. The party will be at Rock Shop on Aug. 28 in Brooklyn (New York).

Check out the entries and vote HERE -- but get to it, as voting closes on Aug. 1!
