Giveaway: Three Pairs of Tickets To Tonight's Yann Tiersen Show at the Granada

In this week's print edition, Doug Davis gets to thinking about Yann Tiersen, the man behind the Amelie soundtrack and, in turn, maybe the whole baroque twee movement of the mid-'00s. Writes Davis:

A classically trained musician, Tiersen's a multi-instrumentalist who rarely tours and, when he does, he's as likely to be seen in a setting such as the Meyerson as he is at the Granada Theater, where this show will be housed.

Accordion players have all the luck, I guess.

Maybe you do, too? The Granada's been kind enough to pass along three pairs of tickets to its affair with Tiersen this evening. Scoring a pair is easy enough as well--just be among the first three to email me right now with the words "Yann not Yawn" in the subject line and you're in. Good luck!

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
