Contest - Win a Pair of Tickets - Silversun Pickups 10/24 & Old Canes 10/23

I have 2 ticket giveaways for upcoming shows in Pittsburgh. One is to see Silversun Pickups w/Cage the Elephant at Ches-a-Rena on Saturday, 10/24 and the other is to see Old Canes at Brillobox on Friday, 10/23.

I will do a proper preview for both as the shows get closer. Most of you are familiar with Silversun Pickups.

Old Canes is a musical band from Lawrence, Kansas comprising frontman Christopher Crisci (of The Appleseed Cast) on vocals and guitar. Officially formed in 2002, Old Canes bore its roots around October 2001, when Chris Crisci initially played a handful of solo acoustic shows. Playing an in-store show as part of a European tour with Crisci's primary band, the Appleseed Cast, promoters wanted the band to play acoustic. Having acoustic material written that was never previously pursued, Crisci would performed three eventual Old Canes songs. After encouragement from supporters who appreciated the contrasting folk sound to the Appleseed Cast, he formally pursued the Old Canes a year and half later.

To win the tickets just send me an Email and tell me what show you are entering the contest for with your name. Winners will be selected at random.

Entries for Silversun Pickups/Cage the Elephant must be received by 10/16. Old Canes must be received by 10/20.
