Giveaway: Two Pairs Of Tickets To Tomorrow Night's Devin The Dude Show at The Granada Theater
In this week's paper, Darryl Smyers previews the Devin The Dude show coming to the Granada Theater tomorrow night, recalling the man born Devin Copeland's hazy, smoke-filled 20-year career and lauding him for taking pedestrian topics like marijuana and the state of hip-hop and keeping their discussions fresh and interesting.

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
