Jeremy Messersmith

It must be Monday, because we’re giving away tickets to some pretty wicked shows.  The New Pornographers, Bob Log III, Marc Cohn, and Minnesota’s own Jeremy Messersmith (pictured above) are all set to perform for Madison’s most discerning music fans (umm…that’d be you!) this week.  We’re also pleased to be presenting yet another show of our Smoke Free Sounds Series.  This time the setting is Shank Hall in Milwaukee, where some of our favorite bluegrass savants, Cornmeal, will help keep the smoke-free celebration rolling from city to city. We hope you’ll make the road trip with us.

Read on to find out how to enter this week’s ticket giveaways, and learn more about these fabulous upcoming shows.

  1. I’d wear a Max Headroom mask, bikini briefs and a red glittery, high-collared cape. You don’t need much else in the way of costumes, in my opinion

  2. Ok, Chris, you got the tix. I expect to see you in full costume at the show 😉
