We Love DC is giving one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see Wild Child at The Hamilton on Tuesday, June 25. The 2013 Austin Music Award winners for Best Indie Band and Best Folk Band join together with Shakey Graves and Marmalakes to showcase Austin’s finest in their final performance on The Outside City Limits Tour.

Here are the rules: leave a comment on this post with a valid e-mail address (only one entry per e-mail, please) between 11am today and 9am tomorrow. Comments for the giveaway will close after 9am Tuesday, June 25. All comments will be appreciated, but only one comment will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by e-mail. The winner must respond to our email within two hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

The winner will be on the guest list (plus one) at The Hamilton 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 be accompanied by a parent or guardian if he/she is under 18 years old.

I had a chance to talk to Wild Child in advance of the show, and to me, this band is a simple reminder that fancy has nothing to do with the finer things in life. They’re about loved ones, dogs, and favorite tacos. They value the haze of lazy days. They are grateful for summer house parties. They appreciate above average pizza. Basically, they’re just like us, except way more talented and play great live shows. Formerly consisting of acoustic duo Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins, Wild Child wistfully strummed the enchanting vulnerability of a rocky relationship into their 2010 album “Pillow Talk.” Now armed with keys, drums, and strings, the band has evolved into a seven-piece indie-folk powerhouse with harmonious surprises up its sleeve.

Tickets for this show can also be purchased through The Hamilton’s website.
