CONTEST – The National @ The Phoenix – October 8, 2007
Hey, have you heard of this great band from New York called The National? I really dig em. They released this great album earlier this year called Boxer. It’s really good. If you haven’t heard it, you should. They have another album, Alligator, that’s also really good. They’re playing with this guy who goes by Doveman, who’s also really good but in a completely different way. He’ll probably play with The National for some songs too. They’re friends.
They’re going to be in town next Monday night, that’s Thanksgiving, for a show at the Phoenix. I saw them back in June and it was really good. I bet this show is also really good. It’s just about sold out though. But that’s okay, because thanks to the people at Against The Grain, I’ve got one pair of passes to give away. To take a shot at winning them, send me an email at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see The National” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Also tell me how good this show is going to be. And do it quick because this contest is only going to run until midnight,
September 3 October 3. That’s Wednesday. Thanks.
