March LIVE- Free Concert Tix and Pics

To all those “True Fans” who wish to reminisce or recreate the memories, this is for YOU! Check out photos from last month’s shows and learn how you can get your pictures posted and win FREE tickets to an upcoming show!

March was a solid month for live music. With 16 different shows, ranging from small cafe performances to full-size theater productions, we witnessed a broad spectrum of musical styles and sounds that hailed from all parts of the U.S. From the hip-hop rhymes of Bronze Nazareth, to the electro-dub of STS9, we drowned ourselves in sound.

As one way to say “Thank You” to those who joined in, we have created this photo recap and a contest that is sure to please your creative palettes.  Send us any photo(s) that you have taken at a True Endeavors concert in 2009 to become automatically eligible to win a FREE PAIR  of tickets to the show of YOUR CHOICE between April 16 – April 24. Yep, you heard us right, that’s 11 shows to choose from (see our calendar).  If we like your photos, they may just end up being posted. All winners will be announced Tuesday, April 14.

Please send your photos to Shelley at shellpeckham@trueendeavors.com
