You demanded an encore, so you're getting one. Vita.mn's 2010 List of Lists special issue is coming July 22, and to help the annual list-making along, we're bringing back the holy grail of prizes: You could win a highly coveted spot on the First Avenue guest list for a year - plus one! - just by filling out the top-10 lists below.

We're talking free cover for you and a guest to every single ticketed event at First Avenue, 7th Street Entry and the Record Room (no cash value; subject to very rare exclusions) for a full 12 months. That includes upcoming concerts by Built to Spill, The Dead Weather, The National, Broken Social Scene and many, many more gigs not yet booked or imagined! Sounds like a great way to celebrate the legendary downtown nightclub's 40th anniversary year.

Here's how to do it.

Go to any of the eligible lists below and fill them out. Each eligible list that you fill out between June 1 and June 30, 2010 will be counted as a separate contest entry. Already filled out a list in the past? Update it with fresh answers – that counts too. A random drawing from all entries will snag the two guest list spots for one winner. That means every one of the lists you fill out gives you another chance to win! For complete contest details, see below.

Happy listing – and we'll see you down at the club!
