Husband-and-wife rockers Mates of State come to Mercury Lounge to play twice this Friday. Tickets still remain for the late show, but if you got shut of the early show, try to Grow a Pair of tickets from The House List. Just fill out the form below, making sure to include your full name, e-mail address, which show you’re trying to win tickets to (Mates of State, 12/19) and a brief message explaining why early shows are better than late ones. Eddie Bruiser, who needs some convincing, will notify the winner by Friday. Good luck.
