Well, what if I told you that you could potentially get a Bonnaroo pass for just $8, and all you have to do is support some local music in the process? This Saturday, April 12, rock 'n' rollers Repeat Repeat will celebrate the release of their debut full-length Bad Latitude with a show at Mercy Lounge, and Road to Bonnaroo winners Blank Range, Road to Bonnaroo winners El El and not-RTB-winners-but-definitely-good Churchyard will appear in support. Contributor Stephen "Goose" Trageser wrote a little something on the show that you'll be able to see in this week's forthcoming dead-tree edition of the Scene.
All right, OK, so here's the part you want to know about. According to Repeat Repeat frontman Jared Corder, "We are giving away two full weekend passes to Bonnaroo to two people that purchase tickets to the show early." The tickets were given to Corder & Co. by Miller-Coors, who are rolling out a new beer and promoting the shit out of it.
So, you caught that, right? Two people who purchase pre-sale tickets to Saturday night's show via this link will win passes to June's Manchester, Tenn.-based mega-fest. Pay to see Repeat Repeat and three other local bands, potentially see Jack White, Elton John, Kanye West, Lionel Richie and two of those same local bands for free. Seems worth it to me.
Here's that ticket link again. And because I know what you're thinking, the purchase limit is four tickets.
