Last week we asked you to tell us about the ways you support the musicians you love — and you came through with stories about buying albums, merch and concert tickets; about evangelizing to your friends and booking musicians to play your living room or at your college's spring fling.

Now we want to see the proof. You're [insert artist's name here] biggest fan? Then send us that photo of you with them.

Did you wait on line forever to get a headshot signed; did you lurk at the back door of the venue; sneak backstage or enter a contest for which the prize was that holy grail of fandom: MEETING THE BAND?

Show us. Put it on flickr or tweet with the tag #thatswhatfansarefor. We'll publish a gallery of them next month.

I'm talking to you, Janice from Burlington, Ontario. We want to see that photo of you with Chris Isaak from 1993! And you, Natalie from Indianapolis. Where's you with Hoots & Hellmouth?
