Miggs was kind enough a pair of tickets to the shows. To enter, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name. All names must be submitted by 2/23.
From their bio:
MIGGS isn’t the new kid on the block. They’ve been “one of the best bands you’ve never heard of” (music-reviewer.com) for a while now, with more almost-famous stories than thought possible and they’re not showing any signs of letting go or letting up in 2011.
For Don Miggs (lead guitar), Michael Lombardo (bass guitar) and Walker Adams (drums), after years of grinding it out – multiple albums, touring over 150 dates a year it was time to push the band to the next level. MIGGS turned to multi-platinum producer/engineer Ken Lewis (Fall Out Boy, Kanye West) to translate MIGGS’ years of on-stage chemistry into a gripping studio album.
The result was mid-2010’s “Wide Awake” (Rock Ridge), easily MIGGS’ most accomplished, fresh-sounding and accessible collection of songs to date. In support of the album, the rock trio toured successfully with Maroon 5, Ed Kowalczyk from LIVE, Plain White T’s, Thriving Ivory, Green River Ordinance and Parachute. The debut single, “Girls & Boys” is about coming of age and learning to appreciate what makes you unique. The song was a hit for MIGGS and peaked at #42 on Billboard’s Adult Album Alternative chart and #89 on the Billboard’s Hot AC chart. One of the highlights of year was the making of the video for “Girls & Boys,” and the chance to work with up-and-coming music video director, Justin Purser. To date, the video has nearly 150,000 views on YouTube.
The show is scheduled to begin at 7:30p.
