The Winners of Our "Skrillex Hugging a Kitty" Photo Contest

Last week the kind folks at Rdio sent us four pairs of tickets to the wub-wubbing IDentity Festival set for this Saturday at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Why? Because they love Rocks Off and we love you.

Obviously Rocks Off didn't need the eight tickets ourselves since we already have a team covering the show this weekend, so I came up with an inventive way to give them to some lucky, resourceful Houston EDM (Hello Google!) fans.

Earlier today on our Rocks Off Facebook page, I implored our followers to send me a picture of Skrillex hugging a kitten, because I figured kittens and Skrillex are two of the most-searched things on Google. I'm a company man, after all.

Of course, one of the winners was a wiseguy and sent a picture not of Skrillex but of EDM artist Dillon Francis surrounded by cutie pies. He also sent us another picture of the Skrillz with a cat, so I gave him a pair. It only seems fair, as I admire his moxie.
