"THURSDAY" LAUNCHES ONLINE SCAVENGER HUNT VIA GOOGLE EARTH
As Sherlock Holmes said, "The game is afoot," with Island recording group Thursday hosting the first major on and offline scavenger hunt that utilizes the Google Earth application. Fans will be led - clue by clue, location by location, complete with longitude and latitude positioning - to the contest's exciting conclusion on May 4th, when Thursday will announce the winners live on FUSE.
Beginning April 11th, Thursday fans can dive into a unique mash-up of the Google Earth application located at http://earth.thursday.net. There, fans can travel a graphical representation of the earth, zoom in to particular cities and find any past or future tour dates. They can not only see which fans are attending a future show (or went to a past show), but can also upload show photos, write show reviews and more. Fans from around the world will be able to network and interact with each other in a way that's never previously existed. As the contest progresses this month, fans will interact online and off with web sites, music retailers, venues and so on, to help each other reach the end goal and win some amazing prizes.
