We’ll also be giving away tickets to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Incubus[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Morrissey[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Death Cab For Cutie[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Dirty Heads[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Foster The People[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pepper[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tiger Army[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Kooks[/lastfm] and more! But don’t worry, you’re not required to donate blood to win prizes. We want everyone to come down to hang out.

Parking is FREE if you give blood. Park in the Frankenstein lot across from the Hilton Hotel located on Universal Hollywood Drive, just off of Lankershim. Blood Drive is located inside the Universal Studios’ Globe Theater, near the entrance to Universal Studios Hollywood Theme Park.

KROQ’s Suck It Up Blood Drive is sponsored by The Thing. From Universal Pictures and the Producers of Dawn of the Dead. In a place where there is nothing, they found something. On October 14th, The Thing will become … YOU. The Thing. It’s not human. Yet. Rated R.

Can you donate? Have you been tattooed recently? If so, you may be ineligible. The downloadable documents below will answer all of your questions.

We highly recommend that you schedule a donation time. It’s a better use of  your time than standing in line. Just e-mail our friend Jag at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. As you know, Cedars-Sinai is one of the most respected medical facilities in Southern California. They’re handling our blood donation operation at Universal Studios.

  • rOmI

    needles make me hella hella nervouuuss

  • cute girlz rule

    mister rOml,
    I hope you don’t have have any tatts or piercings, saying you’re afraid of it. besides, does anyone really like needles? people should do it anyways, but they have like all this cool stuff. all you have to do is fill out a form, get your blood pressure checked, and lay there for 10 min. plus, they load us up on juices & snacks. geez, don’t be such a wimpo – SUCK IT UP & give blood! ~~lisa lifesaver~~

  • Barry

    what’s with Barry Manilow on KROQ’s website? can we win tix for our grandparents (ha, ha, ha, ha!!) and is HE coming to the blood drive?

    • Lightning |

      I’ve been trying to get that ad removed for months. It’s ridiculous and embarrassing.

      • alexis

        my folks love barry manilow! they would also totally come give blood with me if he was going to be there.

    • sherry

      my mom – would give away all her body fluids for barry manilow!!
      me – anthony keidis!!

  • Louis

    To the guy afraid of donating – I’ve donated blood lots of times and know people who have needed a transfusion; so yes, people really do need it. The actual needle stick is no big deal, just a slight pinch. If you qualify (and most people do), it is one of the best things you can do for someone else. And it’s not everyday you can get concert tickets for something like this. The process is all pretty simple. I will be there!

  • alexis

    whats the big deal with giving blood? why are so many guys whoosies about it? cmon down people. I got me an appt, too. or maybe cause I had my tongue pierced for my boyfriend I don’t have a prob doing things for others… : 0

  • trish

    my friend buffi went to the first one at queen mary in lbc a couple years ago. now its 5 min from my work in noho. I am so in.

    • BIG BOY

      Hey, do i know you? I went every year after that one in QUEEN MARY.
      Kroq is cool – they hooked me up. Where’s LISA MAY at?

      • bruce

        just got signed up. is lisa may coming? oh hell yeah!

      • stuart

        nothing against lisa may (what it do, baby boo), but i’m all about kat. her voice makes me wanna light her fire! what’s the dealey-o with kat? will she be there? i think i just may need to give some blood then.

      • LoQueCia LuVa

        i like LoQueCia. is she coming too?

      • tabitha

        how can you not like LISA MAY?!!
        im giving lots of blood on monday.

  • Cassandra

    I’m going too. Call me wierd, but I think donating blood has a kinda sexiness about the whole thing.

  • rose

    not wierd at all. it is sexy. and blood donors are the best!

  • Gabriella

    Blood in a classy way = sexy. Women get this, guys don’t seem to. They just like the gory slashing part of it all. It’s much more deeper than that. Interview with the Vampire was one of the best films ever and Anne Rice is brilliant!! Looking forward to Monday and I’ll be suckin’ it up!

  • brittany & jenn

    all i know is we’re both in for this saving a life thing. it’s our second year. can’t wait!

  • ben

    let’s do this!

    • nancy

    Thanks for arranging all of this. Me & my boyfriend are coming to give blood here.

  • mike

    don’t know exactly what time – but i’ll be there. i want to donate & score tickets to halloween horror nights.

    So glad you guys are doing this again this year.

    • jay doc

      wait – they do this EVERY year?! swweeeeettttt!!!

  • LuLu

    Just heard this earlier on the radio. I’ll come give a pint of blood.

  • John

    I’ll be there, bright and early@6:00am for sure! I’m just gonna drive straight there from The Uproar Festival in Chula Vista on Sunday night once the show’s over, park my car, sleep for a few hours, wake up, and then donate. I’m also going to see Blink-182 & My Chemical Romance@The Hollywood Bowl tonight, so I’ll probably be so tired that I’ll pass out while giving blood, but I don’t care ;-)

    • racquel

      busy boy, you are!
      i think the doors open for the blood drive at 7am, so you can “sleep in”!!
      i’m coming. everyone should donate blood.

  • Ann

    I’m in the most popular blood type category. I’ve heard them say they like all types, yet some are more common than others in the human body. I will be here.
    ~Ann~ O+

    • miley

      i won’t miss this! i’m having oatmeal for breakfast.
      oh yeah, and i think i’m A-

  • bass boy

  • Ashley

    Who would’ve thought a blood drive would be so exciting?? It’s all over KROQ!
    Sounds like a “can’t miss”.
