Q101’ers Film A Special RISE AGAINST Video!

Rise Against gave 5 lucky Q101 fans the chance of a lifetime:  To become part of the poorly trained, yet highly elite and exclusive Q101 Film Crew.

Their mission?  To capture the sights, the sounds, and the smells, of a hard workin’ rock band on the road.  They’ll got that, and more…a lot more, because this wasn’t just any band:  This was Chicago’s own Rise Against!

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO “APPLIED” FOR THIS UNBELIEVABLE PRIZE!  Congrats to Jamie B, Joseph H, Kelsey P, Jamie P, and Emma J!  They were picked at random and are going to the show, getting free HD cams to keep, using them to make RA a very special video to always remember their swing through their hometown for round #2 of their ENDGAME World Tour, and, of course, meeting the band backstage!

Not a winner?  Do not despair.  Now that we know you like these dudes, we’ll try to hook you up with more Rise Against (and similar) stuff down the line!  Thanks to all who entered, and special thanks to RISE AGAINST and our friends at Interscope and Live Nation for helping us pull this off!
