The big Old 97's show on Saturday, May 31, is already sold-out. We aren't surprised. That's why we made sure to snag a pair of tickets ahead of time with you guys in mind. The first person to e-mail me with the solution to the following word scramble gets the tickets:
ryrmu modnham "tols ta eas"
(Hint: Look through the bonus mp3s.)
In the event you don't win, you can still try to get in at the free in-store at Good Records 1 p.m. Saturday, May 31. Getting to that one early will definitely be necessary. -- Chelsea Mueller
Update: Alberto Ulloa was the first one to get the answer (Murry Hammond "Lost at Sea"), so he's won the tickets.
