Regular 'Nac visitors know that I frequently wander off on non-musical tangents, talking comic books, movies, whatever. Well, here I go again, offering up a couple pairs of tickets to see comedian Christian Finnegan and friends at Allston's Great Scott this Friday, along with an autographed copy of his just-released stand-up CD "Au Contraire" (which also has a DVD edition).
I've been a fan of Christian's for a few years, mostly due to his frequent (and always funny) appearances on VH1's excellent "Best Week Ever" pop culture-skewerin' show (now hosted by grade-A jokester Paul F. Tompkins), so I jumped at the chance to hook a few readers up. Hard to think of a better way to kick off a long Memorial Day weekend than by catching him and four other stand-ups (Ken Reid, Chris Coxen, Laura Burns, and James Laurence) on a Friday night. Even mo' better: The comedy action starts at 7pm in order to make way for the Pill's celebration of Morrissey's 50th birthday later that evening, so you can either hang there or head across the river to the Middle East to witness a pretty rocktacular lineup.
Want a pair of tickets, along with a Christian-signed copy of his new "Au Contraire" stand-up disc? I'll randomly pick two winners of two tickets each from those who send an email (title it "Finnegan!" and be sure to include a mailing address) to giveaways [at] bradleysalmanac [dot] com before noon this Thursday, and will notify them that afternoon. They'll find their name on Great Scott's guest list with a +1, with the CD sent on shortly after. Now get with the electro-mailing, and commence with whatever luck-inducing dance that works for ya.
