Want to see indie rockers The Globes, El Ten Eleven, and Sister Crayon for free on Tuesday, August 23, at The Rhythm Room? Up on the Sun has two tickets to give away to one lucky reader. Read on to hear a tune from each band, and details on how you and a friend can check out this show for zero bucks.
To win the pair of passes, simply "like" Up on the Sun on Facebook, and leave a comment under link to this post with your favorite album ever released on Barsuk Records, home of The Globes. A winner will be chosen at random and notified in the same thread. Your tickets will be waiting at the door the night of the show.
My favorite? Probably David Bazan's Curse Your Branches, but The Long Winters' Ultimatum, Jesse Sykes and The Sweet Hereafter's Like, Love, Lust & the Open Halls of the Soul, and Nada Surf's Let Go are all in the running. Good thing I don't have to choose. I'm not eligible, but you are.
