This weekend is pretty amazing as live music goes.
There's, of course, the 35 Conferette going on up in Denton (and starting in, oh, about two hours or so).
And then, right here in Dallas, there's our very own annual St. Patrick's Day affair on Saturday, which will feature performances from the Toadies, Ume, Ishi, True Widow and Here Holy Spain -- a pretty ballinous lineup if we've ever seen one.
We can prove it: Almost 5,000 tickets have already been purchased for Saturday's affair at Energy Square Plaza already (and, gotta say, it's pretty fun being privy to this information as it comes in). So, unless you want to miss out, you should probably go ahead and buy your tickets already.

Or, on the other hand, you can just bank on the luck of the Irish (see what I did there?) and hope to win one of three pairs of of full VIP access tickets to the affair, which we're going to be giving away right here, right now. Wait: What exactly does VIP access entail, you ask? Well, we're not allowed to outright say, I'm told, but let's just say that you'll have access to the VIP area, where "refreshments" are completely free. Catch my drift? Awesome. Now: How to win. Ah. Hit the jump for that information, dudes.
OK: You want the free VIP access tickets? Good! Just be among the first three people to email me, starting right now, with the words "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" in the subject line, and you're in. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
