Free ticket giveaway: Umphrey's McGee at Tabernacle

[Congrats to randomly selected winner Taylor K.!]


Everybody get some holiday rest?

OK, good. Time for my first ticket giveaway of 2017.

Umphrey’s McGee is bringing its chameleonic sounds to the Tabernacle for a three-night stand Jan. 13-15. Thanks to the generous crew at the venue, I have a pair of three-day passes to give away.

If you’d like to buy tickets to the show, they are $35 for each night. Tickets can be purchased here.

The band, by the way, is touring behind its latest release, “Zonkey,” an experimental album consisting of mashups of songs from ZZ Top, AC/DC, Nirvana, Beastie Boys and more – so you know every show will be different.

To enter:

Zip me an email at by 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11. Please do not enter if you cannot attend and please, only one entry per email address.

You must put “Umphrey’s tickets” in the subject line or I will not see your email. If you tell me anything other than “Umphrey’s tickets,” I will not see your email and you will have absolutely no chance of winning.

I will randomly select — and contact — a winner on the evening of Jan. 11. I will also post the winning name here once I’ve received confirmation.

While this isn’t a requirement, I would really appreciate a follow on Twitter or Facebook .

Good luck!
