Monday Ticket Giveway: Clem Snide and Cloud Cult

OK, blog readers, let’s get to it!  We’re giving away tix to two fantastic upcoming indie shows this week.


First up is Clem Snide. Eef Barzelay’s indie rock/alt–country outfit is slotted to play the High Noon Saloon this Thursday with Plants and Animals and The Heligoats.  Clem Snide takes its name from a recurring character in William S. Burroughs’ novels, but it’s certainly not the only tie-in to literature that music has seen.  Give us your list of band names, songs, lyrics, or albums that have been inspired by the literary world. See how many references you can find, and you might just win a  pair of tickets to Clem Snide’s show!

If you’ve had your eye on Friday’s Cloud Cult show instead, you’re in luck!  We’re offering an exclusive giveaway for that show right here on the True Endeavors blog.  The Minneapolis-based indie rockers don’t just make great music–they’re also raising awareness on a number of environmental issues.  (Read more about Cloud Cult’s commendable green crusade here.)  In honor of the band’s environmental awareness, we’d like you to tell us what you’ve been doing, or what you resolve to start doing, to make your existence a bit easier on Mother Earth. Your response may earn tickets for you and a guest to Cloud Cult’s show! (While you’re thinking green, you might want to check this out too.)
