Last month, we told you about Brooklyn Brewery's songwriting contest, in which amateur tunesmiths were invited to submit their odes to Coney Island. Lest you dismiss this little challenge, know that the winner will receive no less than an all-expenses-paid trip to Stockholm for the BROOKLYN, SWEDEN arts-and-music festival, taking place later this month.
You can now check out the top ten video submissions to vote for the lucky, soon-to-jet-set songsmith; the contest closes Thursday, August 8. We've included a few selections below for your perusal.
