If the big mall crowds and near riots over parking that I witnessed during the week after Christmas are any indication, plenty of people are out there spending money on themselves that they didn’t spend on gifts. If, however, you’re one of the ones that’s actually feeling the pinch of the beat down economy, you’ll be happy to hear that Hollywood’s Knitting Factory is doing you a solid by offering everyone a free pair of tickets to a long list of shows happening between now and April. Just show up at their box office on Monday, January 12th between 6:00 and 8:00 pm and tell ’em what you want to see. Full list of shows after the jump, and the same info I just told you if you make with the clicky on the right.
ONE PAIR OF TICKETS PER PERSON. MUST BE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OF AGE TO PARTICIPATE (BRING ID). FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE. WE WILL BE GIVING AWAY 10 PAIR OF TICKETS TO EACH OF THE SHOWS LISTED BELOW. BOX OFFICE WILL OPEN AT 6PM AND CLOSE AT 8PM.
