This Week’s Nightlife and Giveaways: Fleck The Halls!

“The thing about Christmas music is that so much of it is godawful. One can only listen to Paul McCartney sing about simply having a wonderful Christmas time for so long before the urge to drown oneself in the eggnog becomes overwhelming. Luckily, there’s Béla Fleck and his backing trio the Flecktones, who liven up cookie-cutter carols with their unique jazzy bluegrass sound and infectious holiday cheer.” — PopMatters.com

Well Madison, if the snow hasn’t put you in the holiday spirit yet, then Bela Fleck sure will!  He’ll be bringing his Flecktones and a troupe of featured collaborators to The Orpheum on Sunday, December 13th to present their take on your favorite seasonal tunes.  Read on to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show!
