As you may have seen, the Sundance Channel’s talk ‘n’ roll show “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” returned for a second season last week with a top-notch episode featuring U2’s Bono and The Edge. To mark the occasion, the fine folks at Sundance have generously provided Slicing Up Eyeballs with the following prize pack to give away to one lucky reader:

'Spectacle: Elvis Costello With...'

— “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” Season 1 on DVD (5-disc set)
— “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” T-shirt
— “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” tote bag
— “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” USB drive
— “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” notebook
— “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” pen
— “Spectacle: Elvis Costello With…” baseball cap
— U2 “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” 7-inch single

To enter, please leave a comment on the bottom of this post. The contest is open to U.S. residents only (sorry, Sundance’s rules). We’ll accept entries through noon Eastern time on Friday, Dec. 18. The winner will be drawn randomly and notified via e-mail.

Good luck…


  1. First come first served, right?

    Loved the clips from the show w/ Bono and the Edge.
    I hope the untelevised stuff see the light of day.

  2. Thanks for having the contest! Happy Holidays!

  3. Sweet contest! Sign me up!

  4. “Spectacle” is a great show and Elvis proves himself to be an engaging interviewer. The high point of this season has got to be when Nick Lowe appears…can’t wait!

  5. Very cool promo pack, I guess I’ll start the comment entries. ;)

  6. fantastic episode!

  7. Love it! The Sundance folks showing Slicing Eyeballs the love. Thanks for everything and happy, merry christmas to the winnaahhh!!!

  8. I’ve been waiting for this to show up on DVD. Don’t have the Sundance Channel, so I’ve only seen snippets of the show on various web videos. Be nice to see the whole thing. They’re missing out on the freebies, however: Why not some Spectacle spectacles?

  24. “Spectacle” is a rock fan’s dream: Elvis is a great interviewer who shares something with all his guests: the experience of a rock ‘n’ roll life. Great interviews, and special performances. Caught the Ron Sexsmith/Neko Case/Sheryl Crow/Jesse Winchester show and it was a winner! (Neko stole the show, btw)

  25. Count me in! One of my favorite of all time!
