Update: Matt Harnish wins, because we can't resist a local hook. As a side note, I sincerely hope that Adam R. is the person I think it is. Well played, everybody.
As much has been said about the Velvet Underground, there will always be more worth talking about. Rob Jovanovic, who wrote the only book you need about Pavement as well as biographies of Nirvana, Big Star, R.E.M. and Beck, has just released Seeing the Light: Inside the Velvet Underground. We've got a nice shiny hardcover copy sitting on our desk and we'd like to give it to you.
To win, tell us in the comments below what your favorite piece of Velvet Underground trivia is. We'll pick a winner tomorrow afternoon.
