CONTEST – Owen @ The El Mocambo / Why? @ The Silver Dollar – March 27, 2008

A quick one here, mostly because I’m almost wholly unfamiliar with the artists in question. Okay, a couple years ago opening for Yo La Tengo and I believe I thought they were alright… but apparently not enough to make a strong impression.
Anyway, they’re coming to town on March 27 for a show at the Silver Dollar in support of their new record Alopecia and just across the street that same night, Owen – about whom I only know his name isn’t actually Owen but Mike – is at the El Mocambo in support of his rather old record At Home With Owen.
But far be it for my general ignorance to keep you from a free show. Courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got a pair of passes to give away to each of these shows and I will do so to the first person to email at
contests AT chromewaves.net with either “You ignoramus, I want to see Owen” or “You ignoramus, I want to see Why?” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Since this is a first come, first serve proposition, the contest will close when I have a winner for each.
Update: Contest closed! Thanks, and congrats to Matt and Neil.
