The Winning Ticket: Alexander and Fam

As a way to say thanks to our loyal readers, We Love DC will be giving away a pair of concert tickets 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!

This week we are giving away a pair of tickets to see self-proclaimed purveyor of “whatevercore” Alex Ebert and “Fam” perform at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue on Tuesday, May 31st.

You might know Alex Ebert better as the singer for the groups Ima Robot and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. He is an eclectic performer who is usually featured amidst massive collaborative groups of performers. This year Alex has released his first solo recording called “Alexander” and is supposedly taking a break from his collaborative collectives to enjoy a little creative me time. What this performance will be like is anyone’s guess. When I saw him perform with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, I found Ebert to be a charismatic and eccentric performer. Who “Fam” is also anyone’s guess at this point. While this is supposed to be supporting his strictly solo album, the tour could feature any number of his past collaborators or even some new ones.

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 event are available on Ticketfly.
