GIVEAWAY: Fiona Apple Tickets + Upcoming Concerts


Win two tickets to see Fiona Apple and Blake Mills.

Join my husband and me in our concert-going obsession.

Three babies, two jobs, nearly 80 years between us and this crazy-crazy DC pace has done this to us. We live for new music. We spend way too much on various radio subscriptions and mp3s. Our entire date night budget and all gifts to each other are tickets.

All because my husband Chris and I have realized that there is no better night out (without the kids) than seeing a quality musical act live. It’s our hobby, our shared recreational passion.

Won’t you join us?

Here are some upcoming acts that I, and the folks at the 9:30 Club and I.M.P. Productions, recommend, as well as the chance to win two tickets to the Fiona Apple and Blake Mills concert on Saturday October 26 at The Lincoln Theatre in DC.
