Psst! Tickets for our fall shows are becoming harder and harder to come by.  Ingrid Michaelson’s upcoming show at the Barrymore recently sold out, and available tickets to the Avett Brothers are going fast.  These are just a few of the season’s high-demand concerts, so to make sure you get in to see the shows you crave, visit our Music Calendar page and get tix ASAP.  But for those of you who waited until the last minute, we might be able to help you out too.  Read on to find out more about the shows coming up this week from Drummer, The Avett Brothers, Yonder Mountain String Band, Langhorne Slim, Pretty Lights, The Black Dahlia Murder, Ingrid Michaelson, Julian Marley and the Uprising, Emmylou Harris, and David Bazan.  You might just win a pair of tickets to one of ’em!

  1. Langhorne Slim:

    Before the sun sets… why not fall in love? It would be a prefect way to start the week followed by a weekend enjoying a great love song writer.

  2. Langhorne Slim/Dawes tix:

    Before the sun sets today, I plan to head over to the High Noon Saloon for the 7pm Sunset Rubdown show. If that’s not fun, I don’t know what is!

  3. There can only be one winner–this week’s free tix go to Susan–but we hope you’ll both head out to catch this great songwriter. Thanks for participating. Keep checking back for more chances to win!
