Philadelphia (CBS) – This Friday, August 17th, Kentucky-bred jam band My Morning Jacket will rock the amphitheater at The Mann Center with Seattleites Band of Horses to start the evening off in style. Tickets to the show are in short supply, however Manayunk record store Main Street Music in conjunction with WXPN wants to send you and a guest to the show!
The contest is simple: enter to win. Fans can enter in any number of ways described on Main Street Music’s Facebook page. One grand prize winner will not only receive two tickets to Friday night’s show, but will also be included in the pre-show festivities.
That’s not all! In addition to the sound check party with My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses, the lucky entrant will be the beneficiary of a $100 shopping spree at Main Street Music. The deadline to enter is Thursday, August 15th at 11:59PM.
My Morning Jacket is responsible for putting the soul back in rock and roll. Frontman Jim James has drawn inspiration from Stax Records, Motown, and ’70s gospel. Citing R&B icon William Bell, James says, “‘Everybody loves a winner, but when you lose, you lose alone.’ I don’t think that statement is completely true– real friends and family are there for each other through thick and thin– but when I hear this song it reminds me of them… the people who really matter.”
