Beirut (the band) ticket draw

Right. I have two tickets for Beirut who are playing at the Tripod on Friday 22nd June. To make sure only diehard fans get these tickets, please answer the following question: What is the name of the band? Yeah, I know, told you it would test you.

But yeah, if you want to be in a draw for the tickets, leave a comment below and specify whether you’ll take one or two tickets. I assume two but if whoever wins wants only one, I’ll pick another person to get the last ticket.

Update: I’ll do the draw on Friday 15th June.

Draw over.

  4. […] Gulag Orkestar was one of the best albums of last year and last week showed Zach Condon’s musical powers are growing stronger by the minute. So it’s fitting then that ledgebag Damien has a competition to win two Beirut tickets to the upcoming gig in Tripod on June 22nd. Go here to enter. Come on the blogosphere’s not that big, you’ve got a high probability! […]

    i didn’t mean to enter 3 times (i swear). I pulled out the internet connection wire when i stood up to get a peach, and then had to resubmit when I sat down and then I looked and there were 3 entries.
    I don’t want to prejudice the competition (I swear)….

    (my national school teacher used to say that the more details someone gave in an excuse made it more likely to be a lie, so i’ll stop rambling now!)

    Beirut. Was going to go with REM, but then I remembered that Michael Stipe was related to John Malkovich, so REM couldn’t be right. Tricky question that…
