The Granada Theater offered DC9 readers five pairs of tickets to Saturday's Aesop Rock show, which is a must-see for fans of eccentric, thought-provoking indie hip-hop. Pitchfork may not be too keen on his latest project, the MURS/Slug collabo Felt 3: A Tribute To Rosie Perez, but Aesop Rock is still a fascinating abstract, sometimes completely nonsensical lyricist with beats that are equally mind-boggling.
But even if you're not a huge fan, Saturday's show also features Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz, Austin hipster dance outfit Car Stereo (Wars) and DJ Sober. Not bad for $17
, and even better for free--which will be the price if you're fast on the e-mail. Each of the first five people to e-mail me with the subject "I Shall Pass" will get his or her name on the guest list with a "plus-one" to bring a guest. Be sure to include your full name in the e-mail. Go!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to the winners.
