We at Owl & Bear love you. Sure, sometimes we treat you badly, or forget to call, or embarrass you in front of your friends, but that’s just our way, and it doesn’t mean we don’t care about you. And because we love youâ€”and not because it’s your birthday, or Valentine’s Day, or any other obvious dateâ€”we got you something nice. Because that’s just the kind of art/environment/politics/San Diego-themed website we are.
On May 4th, Minneapolis-based quartet The Greycoats will be gracing San Diego’s own Soda Bar with their cinematic and harmonious brand of rock and roll, and we think you should be there. After all, you like Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and Sigur RÃ³sâ€”see, we do pay attentionâ€”and we think you’ll like these guys too. So, just because you’re youâ€”and not because we’re admitting to being wrong or feeling guilty about anythingâ€”we’re giving away two tickets to see the show.
To be eligible to win, simply reply in the comments below. Be sure to include your email address (it won’t be visible on the site) so we can contact you.
Because we’re genuinely interested in who you are, we’d like it if you’d tell us something personal about yourself in your comment. What’s your favorite color, or your favorite food, or your favorite San Diego-based website named after more than one but fewer than three animals? Anything that will help us get to know the inner you will do. The most interesting/revealing/creative response will be declared the winner of two tickets to the Greycoats show, as well as our hearts. Or, if you’d rather not reveal anything about yourself, that’s cool too, because we don’t want to pry. So, to put it another way, the winner will be chosen at random.
Finally, while we’re in a giving mood, here’s a free MP3 of “Goodbye Sweet Youth, Goodbye” from The Greycoats’ self-released album Setting Fire to the Sweet Unknown to get you excited about the show. Ain’t love grand?
