Are you insanely bored and tired of that same sitcom rerun? Simply turn off the television and check out Isthmus promotions to win tickets to show headed to town and other free fun. Just type in your name and email address, cross your fingers, pray, do whatever you need to do for a chance to see these great performances! This week, we're featuring tickets to two concerts, a CD, and an on-stage comedy.
- If Neil Young and James Taylor are in your album collection, then you will want to enter to win a free CD autographed by Amos Lee. He is bringing his unique brand of folk-soul music to the High Noon Saloon in Madison on Friday, Nov. 17, in support of his new album Supply And Demand. Enter here to win!
- Remember the sweet holiday sweater you got from your great aunt last Christmas? Remove it from storage and grow some long hair because it's time to rock out this season to an awesome 60-piece orchestra accompanied with a very boisterous choir. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is performing in Madison on Sunday, Nov. 19 with two shows at the Coliseum; one at 3:00 p.m. and a second 7:30 p.m. Win tickets here!
- Some bands only require drums and a guitar to rock out. The Black Keys certainly didn't, and you have a chance to see them when they play at the Majestic on Monday, Nov. 27. Win tickets here!
- We've all been on bad dates. They can be down right terrible or something to look back on and laugh. But others are really funny to hear about, particularly if the date is portrayed on stage! The Madison Rep is producing Bad Dates, a comedy in which a woman shares her continued quest for love in a story involving Romanian mobsters, bone-headed Texas husbands, teenage daughters, a bug-loving Buddhist, and 600 pairs of shoes. The Isthmus previews for the performance are on Wednesday, Nov. 29 and Thursday, Nov. 30. Win tickets here!
After the last Isthmus "Pint & Policy" forum (about the relationship between Madison and Milwaukee) generated so much discussion, we thought it was time to put together another one. Buy a beer for you and your friends, and join Isthmus for its latest "Pint & Policy" at the downtown Barriques Coffee Trader on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7:00 p.m. The topic at this forum is Madison and its art scene: Is it getting too big for its own good? The gathering is free, except that is, for the two cents were are hoping you'll contribute to the discussion.
