Grow a Pair: Win Free Tickets to See Blue Rodeo on 11/14November 10th, 2009
One of Canada’s most popular roots-rock bands, Blue Rodeo, has been doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well since releasing Outskirts, in 1987. They’ve put out a slew of music since then, all the while honing their blend of rock, folk and country, earning them comparisons to the estimable kings of that rock-folk-country combo, Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons and the Band. Blue Rodeo’s newest album, The Things We Left Behind, comes out later this month. But you don’t have to wait that long to hear the new tunes because they’re playing Mercury Lounge on Saturday. One catch: The show is sold out. But you can try to Grow a Pair of tickets from The House List. Just fill out the form below, listing your name, e-mail address, which show you’re trying to win tickets to (Blue Rodeo, 11/14) and a brief message explaining why this ain’t your first rodeo. Eddie Bruiser, a sucker for a girl in chaps, will notify the winner by noon on Friday the 13th. Good luck.
