What still sets Copeland apart from many in the genre is his self-deprecating wit.

Suffice to say then that we're quite looking forward to tomorrow night's show--and not just for the inevitable contact high we'll receive upon arrival.

And, thanks to our friends over at the Granada Theater, we've got a couple pairs of free tickets to tomorrow's show hand out to a few lucky DC9 readers. Want one of them? OK. Just be among the first two people to email me right now with the words "The Dude Abides" and you're in. Good luck!

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
