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 Paul Weller at the 9:30 Club on Tuesday, July 30.

Holy cow, did I say Paul Weller? Yes, indeed, the Modfather is coming to Washington, DC. Weller has been putting out solo albums for more than 20 years, but many still hold his work as lead singer of The Jam in the highest regard. In 2012, Weller released a new album, Sonik Kicks, that went all the way to the top of the UK album charts. With songs like “That Dangerous Age,” Weller sings of an older man’s life concerns but still from a point of punk rock idealism. He’s also been known to revisit some of the best selections from The Jam like “That’s Entertainment,” a young man’s ode to finding fun on the streets.

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 you should tell me your favorite song by Weller, The Jam or the Style Council! 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.

  1. Favorite Jam song is definitely I Got By In Time from the album In the City

  2. Favorite Paul Weller song, that’s a tough one. The first thing that comes into my mind is “That’s Entertainment” followed by “From the Floorboards Up”.

  3. I have been known to leave Cafe Bleu on repeat in the car rather endlessly, but the true love is My Ever Changing Moods.

  4. Beat Surrender

    “You’ll see me come runnin’
    To the sound of your strummin’
    Fill my heart with joy and gladness
    I’ve lived too long in shadows of sadness”
