Caption contest winner:

Erland and the Carnival (Photo courtesy of Vanessa Galvin)

One week ago, we at the Underground asked you the reader to submit your most creative caption for the photo of British folk-rock act Erland and the Carnival seen above.

Now, we are pleased to announce the winner as one Beau Bensch of Belchertown, Mass. with his caption:

“Okay, we robbed the bank. Time to make MUSIC… guys, guys. You were supposed to lose the masks.”

While any caption containing a reference to a known felony is often comical enough, Bensch’s submission had just enough creativity to put him over the top. And, for those who didn’t win this time don’t worry, more caption contests are already being planned for future posts. Check back soon for your chance to win.

As for the group in the picture itself, they have been pretty busy the last few months. Erland and company released their debut EP “Trouble in Mind” in October on the Full Time Hobby/ Yep Roc label, and recently wrapped up a series of U.S. tour dates that included stops in Boston and New York City.

See the band perform the title track to their EP in the back of a cab here:
