Hey hey, another day, another ticket giveaway. I'm actually going to be doing two today -- the one below and a last-minute chance to win 2 tix to see Tapes 'n Tapes, Wild Light, and the Subjects at the Paradise tonight. But to mix things up, I'll be doing that particular contest on the Almanac Twitter account, so follow me over there and keep an eye out for my first-ever free-ticket-tweet. And congrats to Natalie from Cambridge, who was the winner of the Ben Kweller / Watson Twins giveaway, and will be attending that show tonight in Somerville.
First I'll kick off a giveaway for two pairs of tickets to another show at the Paradise, this one on Friday, where you can catch three of the best damn bands this area's got: Drug Rug with Helms and Viva Viva. While I dig the headliner D.R. and opener V.V. quite a bit, it's the middle band that is the personal highlight of this killer lineup -- it should be something special to see the mighty trio that is Helms up on that stage. Last time I caught them was far too long ago, when they absolutely destroyed me with a powerful set at PA's Lounge. While the Paradise experience will no doubt feel drastically different than the rec-room vibe of PA's, I still expect sonic ownage.
So if you're game for spending your Friday night at the 'Dise, send an email (subject: "Hot Local Action!") to me at giveaways [at] bradleysalmanac [dot] com. Include the city you live in, and get it to me before noon this Thursday, when I'll use my trusty random number generator to pick two winners, who will both be contacted that afternoon. If one of them is you, you'll find your name (with a guest) on the list at the Paradise ticket window on Friday. For the rest of ya, pick up tickets of your very own right here, or at the venue's box office to save on fees.
And remember, hit up my Twitter account, where I'll be handing out a pair of list spots for tonight's Tapes 'n Tapes / Wild Light, / Subjects gig sometime this afternoon.
