Free 9:30 Club Shows For an Entire Year

By

If you've ever been on the guest list for a concert, you know how great it is to walk up to the box office, slide your ID to the person behind the window and say, "I'm on the list." Imagine what it would be like to experience that feeling times about 250. You can make this happen, and all it could cost is a can of Campbell's Chunky Soup.

The 9:30 club is currently holding its annual holiday season raffle to collect food and clothing for local charities. For each nonperishable food item or piece of clean, used clothing you bring to the club from now through the end of the year, you will receive a raffle ticket. Be sure to take good care of this ticket, because it might have a retail value of thousands of dollars. On January 1, the club's powers that be will randomly choose a winning raffle ticket, which entitles the owner to two free tickets for every single show on the 9:30 club schedule in 2006. Couldn't get a ticket to that sold-out show? No problem, you're covered. Don't want to spend a hard-earned $40 on a band you are curious about but aren't really that familiar with? Now you can check them out for free. Have absolutely nothing to do on a given evening? Now you do.

There are some ground rules. You can donate as much food and clothing as you want, but you can only receive a maximum of 10 tickets per night. You can only drop off stuff on show nights or during the club's regular box office hours (weekdays noon to 5, or until 7 p.m. on nights when there are no shows); you don't have to be attending that evening's show to drop off food or clothing. And the guest list tickets are as non-transferable as it gets. If you win, there's absolutely no chance of the club letting the winner put a friend on the list in his or her stead for one evening. So don't even ask.

There will also be secondary prizes, including CDs, 9:30 club tickets and more. Now if the club could just work on the raffle that would entitle the winner to a year's worth of non-$6 beers...
