Earlier in the week I got to thinking that after last week's four ticket giveaway contests, how could we go this week with well, ...none? Something seemed a bit off, if you ask me.
Happily our friend Olivia Mancini came to our rescue with a pair of tickets for her show this coming Friday night at Iota in Arlington with No Second Troy.
So, Olivia, what's the scoop?
"Olivia Mancini and No Second Troy last played together in February of 2009 (I looked it up) and while I couldn't remember the date, I do remember the night as A+ and Awesome. Apparently, if you put in one part "the Mates" and one part "No Second Troy," you come out with "boundless energy," in the words of one enthusiastic local blogger.
I'm expecting a similar chemical reaction on Friday. We'll be presenting another star-studded lineup, featuring the stalwart Kristin Forbes on bass; Sammy Ponzar of the Andalusians and Impossible Hair on drums; Jarrett Nicolay of My New Mixtape and Virginia Coalition on guitar; and my lil' sis', Julia, on backing vocals and killer tambourine."
Sufficiently sold? As mentioned, we have a pair of tickets for tomorrow night's show—but you have to act fast! Submit your plea for the tickets in the comments to this post—with a contact email address!—and we'll choose one winner tomorrow at noon to see the show on us and Olivia.
Make 'em good - and post 'em quickly!
