Win Tickets For Punch Brothers At El Rey!

With the help of the Internets, it seems “popular” music covers an ever widening spectrum of genres. The sad fact is, we just don’t get enough bluegrass. Next week that will be remedied, as Punch Brothers come to the El Rey. They will be joined by their very special guest, super producer and L.A.’s Friday night favorite, Jon Brion.

Punch Brothers feature, among others, the mandolin of Chris Thile, formerly of Nickel Creek. They will be bringing their modern bluegrass sound to the El Rey on Tuesday, 12 October, and I can’t wait. I also can’t wait to share some great music with you, Los Angeles. Thanks to our friends at Goldenvoice, I’ve got several pairs of tickets for some lucky Blogging.LA readers.

Just leave me a note in the comment section below, telling me you want to see this show. I’ll pick a few readers at random, and each will get a pair of tickets for Tuesday night’s show. Contest ends Sunday, 10 October, 6:00pm pdt.

  1. I absolutely love Punch Brothers! Noam Pikelny (Pickles) is fast becoming one of my musical heroes and has really inspired me with my own banjo playing.
    The band members are virtuosic, creative, funny, energetic, and all-around fantastic entertainers, and yet incredibly level-headed. You can really tell that they do what they do because of their love for the music, not for any other motivation.
    I’m determined to go to this concert…with or without the free tickets :)

  2. I would love to go to this show. I’m a big bluegrass fan and am always looking for new, good bluegrass bands who are currently putting out music.

  3. the punch brothers are changing the bluegrass scene with their modern take on this classical genre. and with jon brion behind them, they’re pretty much unstoppable. i would love to attend this show should the free tickets be granted to me ;-)

  4. I have always thought that the Punch Brothers could/should do a really hilarious cover of the Pussycat Dolls song “When I Grow Up”

  7. Ah please send me! I love bluegrass, I’m crazy about mandolin, and there’s not enough good bluegrass shows in L.A.! I wanna go and sing and dance along and holler and cheer for the Punch Brothers! And Jon Brion, who is freaking incredible! At the El Rey of all places!! PLEAAAAAAAASE!
