The Winning Ticket: Cute Is What We Aim For @ 9:30 Club, 6/9/13

CuteIsWhatWeAimForF

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 periodically. Keep your eyes open for opportunities at 9am once a week or so to find out what tickets we’re giving away and leave a comment for your chance to be the lucky winner!

Today we are giving away a pair of tickets to see Cute Is What We Aim for at the 9:30 Club on Sunday, June 9. The emo pop trio appears in an early show with The Dangerous Summer and Made Violent.

Cute Is What We Aim For put out two albums on the label Fueled by Raman in the 2000s before its members quietly left to pursue other interests. But in 2012, vocalist Shaant Hacikyan, guitarist Jeff Czum, and drummer Tom Falcone mounted a comeback from their hometown of Buffalo, NY, performing new songs and hitting the road. Now they are coming through Washington, DC, on an east coast sweep. They come with new material like “Next to Me,” a sugary but spiky punk-pop number that recalls the concept of there being plenty of fish in the sea.

For your chance to win these tickets simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between 9am and 4pm today. Feel free to leave any comment, but I would be interested in hearing what’s your favorite song from CIWWAF? One entry per email address, please. Tickets for this show are also available through 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.
