The Winning Ticket: Mogwai

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!

Now here is a ticket giveaway for a band that I personally endorse 100%. Mogwai are one of the very best live bands on the planet. They are elite. They are the special forces of the post-rock genre; of the many inspiring bands that post-rock has produced none are as consistently amazing live as them. Their concerts rattle souls. I once saw them play so furiously an amplifier burst into flames (seriously). Another time I saw them perform, they played so hard that their drummer had to be hospitalized immediately after the show. Enter to win two tickets to see Mogwai unleash their quiet beauty and thunderous power at the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, April 19th.

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. Tickets for this concert are available on Ticketfly.

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.

  1. Please put me on the guest list for Mogwai at The 9:30 Club so I can experience Music For A Forgotten Future.

  2. Their music is so amazing, but I’ve never seen them live. Two tickets would be amazing, because then I could convert a friend!

  3. One of the few post-rock bands that matter. I will be there either way but it would be nice to have these.

  4. Oooh. Saw them years ago when they were touring with the Curiosa festival – great show. Would love to see them again!

  5. I’m trying to impress this girl, Mogwai is her favorite band and i got laid off from my job. true story. tix would be the best thing ever!

  6. If someone said that Mogwai are the stars, I would not object. If the stars had a sound, it would sound like this.
