The Winning Ticket (Extra): Fences

Since so many people tried to win tickets yesterday and since we could only pick one winner, we decided that we should give all of those who didn’t win yesterday, a chance to win tickets to a different free show happening this holiday weekend!

Today, we are giving away a pair of tickets to see Fences perform at the Red Palace on Sunday, February 20th.

Fences has been getting love in the press with his self-titled debut that SPIN magazine recently named one of their 10 Best Albums You Might Have Missed in 2010, calling the album “sorrowful, self-deprecating, and charming pop-folk songs with catchy keyboard melodies and lyrics about squandered love.” NPR digs Fences too; they featured his song “My Girl The Horse” as one of their songs of the day last Fall. I am just discovering Fences myself, but I am getting a real “best kept secret” vibe from the guy. Judging from the tunes on his Myspace page, he probably won’t a be a secret much longer.

For your chance to win 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, but you still want to check out Fences this weekend, tickets are just $10 and can be bought here.

Free Fences track and contest rules after the jump!

Like what you hear? Then enter to win those tickets!

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.

The winners name +1 will be on the Fences guest list at the Red Palace on the night of the concert. The tickets must be claimed with a valid ID. The winner must be old 18 years old or older.
