CVU Ticket Giveaway: The Cure Tribute Show Tomorrow Night At Lincoln Hall With Bob Nanna, Mark Rose, Joe Trohman, Mike Kinsella, & More!
(The real deal.)
Tomorrow night, Thursday, September 1st at Lincoln Hall, a staggering display of local talent takes to the stage to deliver a night of the music of The Cure, and CVU has a pair of tickets to give away!
The event, a benefit for Girls Rock Chicago, finds names like Bob Nanna (Braid), Mark Rose (solo artist/former Spitalfield), Joe Trohman (The Damned Things/former Fall Out Boy), Drew Brown (Weekend Nachos), Mike Kinsella (Joan Of Arc/Owen), and Dustin Currier (The Felix Culpa) banding together to cover the grandfathers of goth. If the grouping sounds familiar, it’s because many of the artists performed together in a similarly minded Morrissey tribute set at SubT back in December of 2009. Find video from that event at the bottom of this post.
To enter for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the show, just tweet the following passage between now and 5PM CST.
