Somethin’ to Du: Go to First Ave’s annual ‘Mats Tribute

By 22.Nov.112 Comments

You know that for the past three years First Ave has hosted a ‘Mats tribute concert that benefits Twin Cities Music Community Trust, right? And for the past three years we’ve been able to giveaway tickets to lucky readers. This year is no different. What is different? This year they’ll be paying tribute to ol’ Sorry Ma Forgot to Take Out the Trash, which. . . hang on to your hearing aids and canes. . . turned 30 in August.

If you’re looking for somethin’ to du on Friday, November 25 leave a comment and we’ll give away two pairs of tickets. To enter, just leave a comment and we’ll notify winners Friday. Good Luck!
