CONTEST – Gimme Five (free shows over the next seven nights)

Hooray for the short turnaround contest! I asked the good folks at Against The Grain if they had anything for me to give away in the next little while in the way of concert passes, and indeed they did – all over the next week! So rather than divvy them up and dole them out individually, I’m just going to lump them all together and let you have at them all at once. Here we go. And if you find yourself complaining you’ve got nothing to do this week, don’t blame me.

    WOoooo Hey Rosetta!

    Although I will say this, they are not Haligonian. They are uh, St. John’sian.

    Like me.
