Yonder Mountain String Band at Barrymore Theatre
Win two tickets to see Yonder Mountain String Band and Horse Feathers at the Barrymore Theatre on Saturday, January 31! This show is all ages. Despite some lineup changes (co-founder Jeff Austin parted ways in April; Jake Jolliff and Allie Kral are new additions) and the burden of being labeled jam-grass (ewwwww), the Colorado-based string group continue to mix technical precision with high energy performance. “Lots of people can shred,” said banjo player Dave Johnston to the Charlotte Observer on finding new members, "But just being part of the vibe that is Yonder Mountain has been the first and foremost thing." They'll bring that vibe with, along with some (hopefully) brand new material for an as-yet-untitled album due early this year.
Isthmus Ultimate Frostiball Experience
Win two tickets to the Isthmus Ultimate Frostiball Experience at Overture Center on Saturday, January 31! This event is ages 21+. Want to head to the Frostiball, but worried you won't feel like a 'boss' while strolling in? No? 'Like a boss' is a tired cliché, you say? Fine, be that way, but if you're not excited for a chance to win two Frostiball tickets, a $150 meal at Cento (pasta=boss) and last, but not at all least, a night's stay at the Madison Concourse Hotel, then I guess I just don't know what being a boss even means anymore...besides eating a paycheck's worth of pasta, of course.

Known to have one of the most, if not the most extensive vocabs in hip-hop (according to Rolling Stone, for what it's worth), Aesop Rock continues to make his verbose rhymes as dense as ever since emerging as a marquee of alternative rap in the early '90s, and, as a result, provides near endless mashup opportunities, from Sufjan Stevens to The Rosebuds to Tom Waits.
