GIVEAWAY: Two Tickets to G. Love at 9:30 Club (TWO WINNERS)


The ultimate date night, in my book, is not hours spent sitting at a restaurant. It is a night on your feet, listening to amazing music LIVE. In 2013, my husband and I resolved to book sitters and catch as many concerts as possible. We scrimped and saved to see E./The Eels, Of Monsters and Men, FUN., the Lumineers and Imagine Dragons, and were invited to see One Republic (thanks GM!)

These were the best dates of our lives. (Not bad for 14 years together, right?)

The folks at the 9:30 Club want YOU to have equally awesome date nights this year. They are offering TWO tickets to G. Love and the Special Sauce on Thursday February 20 to TWO lucky readers of A Parent in Silver Spring! How’s THAT for a Valentine’s Day present?

About G. Love and the Special Sauce:

The enigmatically smooth Garrett “G. Love” Dutton is one of Philadelphia’s funkiest performers of laid back, alternative hip-hop blues (a genre he helped define). As an insatiable musical omnivore, G. Love somehow manages to synthesize his iconic influences by shedding their layers to find that harmonic convergence where song and listener bare their souls to each other speaking nothing but the raw-boned truth. G. Love mines the sonic ore of his heroes only to emerge with a fresh lode of precious stones.

He explains his sounds as, “a nod back and a step forward. I return to the roots of blues and folk to make my music. Its what first moved me. I fell in love with it and learned music as a teenager, which is such a developmentally pivotal point in ones life. That point when you decide you wanna play guitar, right? I was 16 when I discovered folk music, the blues, and Bob Dylan and that was simply the backbone for everything that followed for me musically. I mean, this is my second decade as a recording and touring musician and at heart I’ve always been a roots musician. I want to carry on the tradition not in a nostalgic way, but by keeping it fresh, real and unexpected.” — Official band bio
