The Winning Ticket: Drive-By Truckers

As a way to say thanks to our loyal readers, We Love DC will be giving away a pair of tickets to a 9:30 Club concert to one lucky reader each week. Check back here every Wednesday morning at 9am to find out what tickets we’re giving away and leave a comment for your chance to be the lucky winner!

Since the winner’s choice proved so popular last week, we’ve decided to do another one; this time we’re raising the stakes by giving away tickets to a sold out show!

Up for grabs this week, we have one pair of tickets to see Drive-By Truckers perform this weekend at one of their sold out show at 9:30 Club ! That’s right, one of the best Southern rock bands in the business are playing on Friday and Saturday night to a sold out club, and whoever wins today’s contest will get to choose which night they want to attend. Just tell us which night you’d like to go when you leave your comment below. If DBT’s show at the club last summer is any indication, the winner is in for a really good time!

For your chance to win these tickets simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between 9am and 4pm today. One entry per email address, please. If today doesn’t turn out to be your lucky day, check back here each Wednesday for a chance to win tickets to other great concerts.

For the rules of this giveaway…

Comments will be closed at 4pm and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

Tickets will be available to the winner at the 9:30 Club Guest List window one hour before doors open on the night of the concert. The tickets must be claimed with a valid ID. The winner must be old enough to attend the specific concert or must have a parent’s permission to enter if he/she is under 18 years old.

  8. I’ve never had the fortune of seeing Drive-By Trucker’s live but my love for them has grown over the years as various friends play them for me. I read your review of their last show, while listening to the Internet Archive capture of it, while imagining hanging out with the crowd from Southern Culture on the Skids. It was almost like I was there!

  9. I missed out on the July show and last time I saw them in DC, Patterson was sick! I would love to be at the show on Friday.

  10. I’d love tickets to see them on Friday, was planning to go but totally slept on getting tickets. Thanks for these contests!
