Imago Theatre's Frogz at The Capitol Theater

Win two tickets to see Imago Theatre's Frogz at The Capitol Theater on Sunday, October 26! This show is all ages. Mime, humor, dance and terrifying frog costumes form like the misty green NyQuil fever dreams of your youth in Imago Theatre's seminal child-oriented production. Win these tickets and find out once and for all if the frogs manage to dodge the highway well enough to make it to the lilypad. Well, that's probably not part of the show. But it should be.

Smokey Joe's Cafe featuring The Coasters at Overture Hall

Win two tickets to see Smokey Joe's Cafe featuring The Coasters at Overture Hall on Sunday, October 26! This show is all ages. The '50s & '60s hits of songwriter/composer team Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller are still widely used as soundtracks and samples to this day. The Coasters, whose recording of Stoller & Leiber's hit "Yakety Yak" (among others) led them to the top of the charts and all the brightly colored suits a man could ever want, will bring you Smokey Joe's Cafe and memories of the days when songs could be as dirty as they want as long as they used euphemisms.

BalletBoyz at Overture Hall

Win two tickets to see BalletBoyz: The Talent at Overture Hall on Tuesday, October 28! This show is all ages. A mixed program of new & old material from different directors makes up the touring modern dance group's 2014 version of "The Talent," which makes its way to Madison to showcase the beauty of the sleek, powerful, multimedia-incorporating dance of our age as part of Overture's Ladies Night Series...which I guess almost makes sense.

Tokyo Police Club at Majestic Theatre

Win two tickets to the Isthmus VIP Mezzanine to see Tokyo Police Club, Arkells and Living Statue at the Majestic Theatre on Wednesday, November 5! This show is all ages. Remember when these guys were fresh-faced Canadian youths with all the hope of the mid-aughts shining through 2008's Elephant Shell? It gets me just a little verklempt...*sniff*...Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic: Tokyo Police Club is neither Japanese, part of law enforcement, nor a membership club. Maybe it's a club, I guess. There, I feel better. Who Knew?

Brother Ali at High Noon Saloon

Win two tickets to see Brother Ali, Bambu, DJ Last Word and Mally at the High Noon Saloon on Thursday, November 13! This show is 18 and over. Let's just get this out of the way, this show's right in time for the holidays, and we're all thinking it: Minneapolis hip-hop artist Brother Ali is actually Santa Claus. Think about it: the build, the hair, the speaking truth to power just like when Santa threw the moneylenders out of the temple. Laugh now, but when Brother Ali returns to Madison (the land of his snowy birth) and you guys don't have your missing teeth under your pillows for the reindeer pumpkin pie rapture, you're gonna be disappointed when you don't get your Easter baskets. (Full disclosure: I haven't been to church in a while.)

Quiz, a general knowledge trivia quiz.

Isthmus Pregame at Budget Bicycle Center

Win two tickets to the Isthmus Pregame tailgate party two hours before kickoff at Budget Bicycle Center, 1230 Regent St., on Saturday, November 15! This event is 21 and over. Bud Light from Wisconsin Distributors, Bloody Mary's with Tito's vodka, Qdoba and wings from Wingstop will accompany your mental preparation for UW taking on Nebraska, a once dominant program made low by what can only be assumed was a series of accidents involving corn syrup, and of course, Lawrence Phillips & Frank Solich. Despite their ridiculous mascot, the 'Huskers will not be a pushover, ranking 16th in the latest AP poll. A win for Bucky would restore some luster to UW's, so far, checkered season.(Tickets are not available for sale or resale.)


Nick Lowe's Quality Holiday Revue at Barrymore Theatre

Win two tickets to see Nick Lowe's Quality Holiday Revue at the Barrymore Theatre on Thursday, December 4! This show is all ages. Few figures in music exude as much seemingly genuine positivity as master producer/songwriter Nick Lowe (see At My Age's "Rome Wasn't Built in a Day" for a case study on making stalking sound cute), and so he's taken his role as the bespectacled, constantly smiling British grandfather of music to its logical end with a Crosby-esque Chris-uh...holiday concert.
