TICKET GIVEAWAY – The Hold Steady, Drive-By Truckers @ CityBlock – 10/30

One of the more exciting shows coming up is the Hold Steady with the Drive-By Truckers on Oct. 30th (8pm) at CityBlock. The Hold Steady recently released Stay Positive, which garnered an 8.4 on Pitchfork as well as countless favorable reviews through the blogosphere, entering at #30 on the Billboard Charts. Let’s hope the slew of instruments used on the album can fit on the tour bus. Also along for the ride are the ever popular Drive-By Truckers who seem to spend a lot of time in our fair city these days. While DBT was here not so long ago, this is the first trip for the Hold Steady back to Louisville since their December show in 2006. While important then, they’ve escalated to rock star status since then and this show is going to be an incredible one to catch.

Lucky for you, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the show. At $25 per ticket, that’s a $50 value, and that’s not including if you get it through Ticketmaster rather than at the door because there is a decent chance this one could sell out with two headliners on the bill like these two…

ENTER THE CONTEST: To enter the contest, send us an email to BackseatSandbar@gmail.com with Hold Steady and DBT as the subject line. The show is on Oct. 30th, so all entries must be received by 11:59pm EST on Oct. 17th to enter. One entry per person only.

For those of you who don’t get lucky, you can get your tickets for $23 in advance at the CityBlock Box Office, ticketmaster.com, or by calling (502) 361-3100, or for $25 day of the show at thet door. Headliners wasn’t big enough for this show, and who knows if CityBlock will be, so I suggest buying your ticket soon if you don’t want to risk missing this one…
