Win tickets before they go on sale!
Scottish indie-pop band Frightened Rabbit is coming to the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, 29 October for two sets, and ShowlistDC is giving away two pair of tickets! This giveaway is extra-special for two reasons: first, we’re giving away tickets before they even go on sale to the public! Second, since they’re playing two shows on the same night (6 PM & 10 PM), we’re giving away a pair of tickets to each of the shows! So all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me which of the two shows (early or late) you want to go to. If you truly have no preference, you can enter for either (but you can’t win for both shows!). On Thursday, 1 August at midnight Eastern, I’ll pick the winner at random (using random.org), and I’ll let the winner know before tickets go on sale on Friday morning. Be sure to use a valid email address when you enter, so I can contact you if you win (and don’t worry: your email address won’t be posted publicly when you comment on this entry and won’t be added to any sort of mailing list). If you’re a hotmail user, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book or no-spam list, as other hotmail users have had problems with emails from us not getting through. Also note that we ask winners to respond within 24 hours, or else we have to pick another winner, so make sure to check your email regularly!
Frightened Rabbit formed in 2003 and have released four solid albums: 2006′s Sing the Greys, 2008′s the Midnight Organ Fight, 2010′s the Winter of Mixed Drinks, and most recently, 2013′s Pedestrian Verse. More importantly, they put on a great live show; I’ve gotten the chance to review their show twice: April 2010 (at the Black Cat) and November 2010 (at the 9:30 Club). Note that the band has gotten even more popular since 2010; they sold out the 9:30 Club in April of this year, so it makes sense that they’re playing two different shows in the same night. (and did we mention that we’re giving away tickets to both of their shows???)
You can check out a few of Frightened Rabbit’s songs via the videos embedded below, and while you’re giving those a spin, let us know if you want to go to the early show or the late show (or if you have no preference!).
