Win tickets to see Joanna Newsom this Friday!

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

Famed for her Appalachia-meets-avant-garde folk style, Joanna Newsom has wide range of sounds that include her classical harp roots to playing with Nervous Cop (noise rock trio that features Deerhoof's Greg Saunier and Hella's Zach Hill) and San Francisco based, The Pleased.

This Friday, she will be playing at the Walt Disney Concert Hall with 28-piece orchestra conducted by Sean O'Loughlin, featuring arrangements by Van Dyke Parks. And you have a chance to be there to experience Newsom's awesome repertoire.

We are giving away a pair or tickets to Friday night's 8:00 p.m. concert. In the name of arts patronage and how it affects local economies, all you have to do to enter this contest is leave a comment on this post telling us what Downtown Los Angeles restaurant you are likely to pick if you were to have some dinner before or after seeing Joanna Newsom at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The contest ends on Thursday at 12 p.m. and you must be available to respond to an e-mail by 4:00 p.m. the same day if you are chosen to win.
