Awolnation Concert Tickets up for Grabs

Woo hoo, contest time!

This one has a quick turnaround — alt-rock band AWOLNATION is hitting the Sherman Theater on Friday, and I’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to it! Entering information can be found below.

I’m a big fan of this one for four reasons:

1. AWOLNATION is probably one of my three or four current favorite bands. You might not know the name, but when you hear the intro to what has now become the band’s biggest hit, Sail, you’ll know the song.

2. I’ve been critical in the past that the Sherman hasn’t brought in any bands exactly like this, and I don’t want to be critical about the Sherman. I love that place. But I also call ’em like I see ’em. Glad to see a current rock band of this caliber coming to the Sherman.

3. I talked to lead singer Aaron Bruno the other day for an interview I’ll post tomorrow or Wednesday, and he was a really cool guy that had no problem talking about whatever I wanted to talk about.

4. We’re one-upping the Lehigh Valley in the process, since this show originally was scheduled for the Croc Rock, but since they’re having major issues, we got the show. You know what we say to that, Lehigh Valley?

Here’s how you enter:

–Entries are accepted electronically only, so you’ll have to email your entry in to me, Facebook message me or DM me on Twitter. Include your name, town, age and your daytime contact information. Umm, make sure you read that bolded part twice: “Include your name, town, age and your daytime contact information.” Not sure why this is so remarkably hard or unclear, but please guys, do it that way.

–Deadline to enter is Friday at noon. Then I’ll look for you for about half hour, then I’ll move on to the next person.

–Feel free to share this or the Facebook link with your friends. The more entries I get, the better.

–One entry per person, per e-mail address. If I get two entries from the same e-mail, I’m deleting them both.

–If you enter by messaging the PopRox account on Facebook or DM-ing on Twitter, it counts twice. Almost all of the recent winners have randomly come from Facebook entries, fyi.

–Whichever message method you choose is the only way you can enter. If you email your entry in, you cannot Facebook it in too. If I get an email entry and a Facebook entry, I’ll be deleting the Facebook entry. That means instead of getting two entries through Facebook, you’ll only get one entry through email.

–Please know that you can go if you enter. I’ll get in touch with the winner Friday afternoon and you’re name will be at will call at the theater.

Enter soon, we have to get this one in pretty quickly!
