I know one guy who's very excited to see The Residents next week. In fact, so stoked is Darryl Smyers to see the legendary band of eyeball-disguise-wearing anonymous experimental rockers that he wrote a Critic's Pick preview story for this week's paper as well as a "Mark Your Calendars" item a couple weeks ago (which was a few weeks after the show first landed in Show Announcements, despite what his lede says).
If you have even half the interest in the band that Darryl has, you'll want to be at The Granada Theater Wednesday for the 9 p.m. "Evening With The Residents" show. Tickets are $20 to $30, but for two lucky DC9 readers and two guests, the show will be free, courtesy of the venue.
Each of the first two to e-mail me with the subject "Not Available" will receive a pair of tickets. If you win, your name will be on the guest list at the door, so be sure to include your full name in your e-mail.
Update: Contest over. Congrats to the winners.
