In this week's print edition, Darryl Smyers checks in with Brave Combo's Carl Finch to discuss the band's 30-year existence--a major feat for the polka trendsetters, and one that will be celebrated with a big bash tomorrow night at Sons of Hermann Hall.
Also, courtesy of Finch himself, who is rightfully gung-ho about turning tomorrow night into something of a party, we've got five pairs of free tickets to give away to the event. Want in? You got it: Email me right now with "Home of the Brave" in the subject line and, assuming you're on the the first five to do so, you'll be added to the guest list for this milestone shindig.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
