  1. The first time I went to a concert, I was young, dumb, and listening to nu-metal (I did say dumb). So part of my initiation into live music was to get body passed, which was awesome, right up until I got to the front. I was face down, hands stretched out ahead of me. The guard at the rail grabbed both my hands, leaving me defenseless when the trio of little girls in the front were unable to lift my sorry ass and I dipped face first into the rail, cutting my lip open and ultimately requiring six stitches. If I get the tickets, I will not be body surfing at A Place To Bury Strangers.

  2. Wow, you deserve a pair of tix at the very least, Josh! You’re on the list +1.

  3. Are you still giving away tickets to Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers?
