Win Sonic Youth Tickets for their Historic Greek Show

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Before Nirvana there was Sonic Youth and this summer there will be nirvana at The Greek when Sonic Youth plays their entire Daydream Nation album.

If June 20th isn't marked on your calendar you probably shouldn't enter this contest. We have a pair of tickets for this show. We also have two posters for the winner as well.

To enter tell us a story about Sonic Youth. Tell us what the show is going to be like. Tell us how wonderful it will be. Reminisce about old shows they've played here if you must, or speculate about how much different it will be from their appearance at Coachella.

Daydream, if you will.

Put your little story in the comments below and make sure to put your real email address in the proper field so we can write you back if you're the winner.

Deadline to enter is April 30 at 4:20pm and we will announce the winner on May 1.

If for some reason entering contests is against your religion or you just have a fear about writing in public, amazingly there are still some tickets available for sale, which you can snatch up here for a limited time.
