Almost Acoustic Christmas: Photos, recaps, interviews, and more!

By Nadia Noir

Incubus and Linkin Park are pretty stellar bands that have sent their superstar musical aspirations into the stratosphere. Now, they’ve gotten to the point where they are prepared to help send their generous, altruistic fans in the same direction.

Vice’s Motherboard and The Urgency Network have teamed up to bring people the chance to WIN A TRIP TO SPACE in a new initiative called Ticket To Rise.

Earn grand prize entries by completing actions like donating, watching & sharing awareness videos, inviting friends, volunteering and signing petitions. The more actions you complete, the higher you’ll climb up the leaderboard, & the more entries you’ll earn towards the drawing.  When the campaign’s timer runs out, one lucky winner will be selected at random and be sent on the experience of a lifetime, where you’ll travel to the edge of space on the XCOR Lynx Mark II spacecraft, reaching an altitude of 100 km (338,000 feet).

As a thank you for donating, individuals can pick up great rewards such as concert tickets, merchandise & memorabilia and more. For example, Incubus’ Make Yourself Foundation is offering up items like Gold Record Plaques previously owned by Brandon Boyd, custom shirts and artwork designed by Brandon, and more.


Some of the other charitable organizations include Linkin Park’s Music For Relief, KROQ Weenie Roast beneficiaries Surfrider Foundation and Heal The Bay, David Lynch Foundation, Oxfam, PETA, Teen Cancer America, WhyHunger and more.

The Make Yourself Foundation reached out to KROQ to offer our listeners a free entry! Just go and enter the promo code KROQ to get started. If you’re looking to support a different charity, follow the steps below.

How It Works:

STEP 1: Go to and choose a nonprofit you’d like to champion.
STEP 2: Enter your donation amount. Choose from rewards based on the amount you give.
STEP 3: Complete actions like inviting your friends, watching awareness videos, and sharing on social media to get additional entries and other prizes.
