As we mentioned this morning, The Dig's 'Electric Toys' hits your local record store shelves today and the band has come up with a pretty unique way to give a few away and to see them live.
On them. And on us. In your town and venue of choice.
Fresh off a string of dates with The Joy Formidable, The Dig are gearing up for a tour with Thrice, Bad Veins and Kevin Devine this summer with 28 dates in 28 different cities.
Typically we offer tickets for the DC-area date alone, but we're opening up the entire itinerary for you to chose the city in which you want to see the band.
Reading TVD in Philly? Enter to win tickets for the Trocadero show. Maybe you're in Orlando? Enter to win tickets for the House of Blues show. Anywhere the band is playing, you can enter to see them live in your city of choice.

So, how do you win the tickets and the new 'Electric Toys' you're asking? It's simple.
In the comments to this post, tell us the city and venue you'd like to see the band in and why we should select you and your city of choice. The one person with the most convincing entry will see the band in the venue and town they've selected and will be sent the new 'Electric Toys' on vinyl.
Three runners up will receive a CD copy of 'Electric Toys' into the bargain!
We'll choose the winners on Monday (6/14) by noon and I can't stress this enough—leave us a contact email address! Good luck!
