The Winning Ticket: Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub

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 uber-producer Daniel Lanois’ latest jam band project Black Dub perform at the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, June 14th. When I call Lanois an uber-producer, I’m not joking. The guy has produced albums for Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Sinead O’Conner, Ron Sexsmith, Brian Eno, and a little known band called U2. His current band is dedicated to live recording all done in one take, with no over-dubs. What that means is that they are one tight live unit and I am sure this will translate into an excellent performance for whoever wins these tickets. (PS- If I won these, I would also be totally freaking out to hear what a sound-master like Lanois will do with the 9:30 Club’s premier sound system.)

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.

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.
