Given Away: New Pornographers Boston Tickets

The kind promo crew over at WBCN were generous enough to provide the 'Nac with 10 pairs of tickets to a private (aka 'lucky winners only') appearance by The New Pornographers at the Paradise on next Monday night, April 10th. As a fan of the New Prons, I was fairly disappointed to have missed their shows with Belle & Sebastian at Avalon in February (an aside: is anyone else as underwhelmed by the new B&S album as I am?), and I'm more than a little psyched to remedy that at a smaller venue.

So we'll be there, with 10 of you Boston area readers (and a fortunate friend) joining us. Drop me an email with a subject of 'FREE PRON!' between now and Wednesday noon-ish with your snail-mailing address, I'll pick the winners then, and send out the tix so they show up by Saturday (barring any postal snafus). My email link is over there on the left.

(Let's hope that email subject I specified doesn't get you stuck in my spam filter. Oh, and if you win, you are under absolutely no obligation to buy me a beer at the show.)

If you don't wanna rely on getting lucky here, then listen to 104.1 WBCN, who are also giving away tickets, or head over to the Weekly Dig website, where you can enter online. Word has it that event sponsor Jack Daniels also has representatives handing out tix in Boston area bars, so heads up if you're out and about. Since it's a JD promo event, you have to be 21 or over to get in. Keep that in mind when you're entering...

edited later to add - Ok, so I'm totally loving the influx of 'FREE PRON!' emails, and getting a kick out of your reactions to having to write it. And for those who are confused, yes, 'pron' is misspelled on purpose... it's an old spammer trick to avoid filters. My attempts at humor often fall a bit short of the funny bar.

edited on 4/5 to say - The giveway is officially over, so if your inbox doesn't contain a congratulatory message from me, unfortunately you aren't one of the lucky few. I was honestly overwhelmed by the number of entrants, and truly wish I had a bunch more to give. If you missed out, definitely check out the Weekly Dig's website, listen to WBCN, or hunt down a Jack Daniels representative in a local bar... tickets could still be yours.

Congratulations to the winners: Jacy, Stephanie, Krysta, Georgy, Ben, & Rob (all from Somerville... represent!), Dave from Medway, Eli in Brookline, Ashley and Ned from Cambridge, and Grant from Boston. Monday can't come soon enough...
