Joanna Newsom @ Disney Hall, 11/9/07: Win Tickets Now

’joannaMy friends, we are headed for another stellar performance downtown at Disney Hall — this time of the Joanna Newsom variety.


Hauntingly exquisite, the avant-folk harpist-singer-songwriter makes a very special appearance at Walt Disney Concert Hall accompanied by a 28-piece orchestra, featuring arrangements by Van Dyke Parks.

We have a pair of tickets with your name on them. I’ll draw a name from the hat at 4pm and notify the winner by 5pm today.

Important: For this concert, the promoters would like to mail a pair of hardcopy tickets to the winner; truly, an innovative alternative to the “put your name on a list and hope to hell you actually get in” standard operating procedure favored most venues and promoters. This innovation means that I will need:

Your Full Name*
Your Mailing Address*
The Name of the Last Good Book You Read**

**totally optional

No mailing address, no entry. We understand each other.

This contest is totally closed. Winner will be contacted shortly. You may continue to send me book recommendations [ HERE ] however. The choice is yours. HAPPY WEEKEND.

The terminally unlucky can probably wrangle tickets someplace other than this contest; however, at press time the box office looks to be sold out. Sold out! And we do so want you to go.
