Canadian indie rockers Tokyo Police Club are challenging fans in a whole bunch of contests on their new tour in support of the recently released Champ (get it?).

They're coming to the Grog Shop on Saturday, and they're ready to take on Clevelanders.

So what are you guys good at? Call of Duty? Thumb wrestling? Eating Little Debbies?

Leave a comment and let us know what you want to challenge Tokyo Police Club at before their show on Saturday. We're helping the band figure out what they'll be doing at the Cleveland stop of their Champ Champion Contest.

The winner gets a pair of tickets to the show and gets to compete against the band in whatever challenge they named.

Runners-up will also get tickets to the show, but you won't get to show the band how awesome you are at burping the alphabet. (You could also get tickets the traditional way, just in case you don't want your pride bruised by a group of pasty Canadian indie rockers.)

If you're a little confused, check out this video. It explains what's going on.

You have about 24 hours to leave a comment/suggestion. We're going to send them to the band tomorrow afternoon.

So what are you waiting for, Cleveland? You're not gonna let a bunch of Canadians beat you at naked beer pong, are you? —Michael Gallucci
