Let There Be Light
This time of year can send people into a vortex of anxiety and Charlie Brown bleakness which threatens to contradict all the joy those little colored lights are supposed to convey. Rampant commercialism is our society's heart of darkness, but it's your choice whether to succumb or fight as the days grow shorter. DC ROCKS and the 9:30 Club want to help ease your pain by giving away two tickets to the Drive By Truckers's show on December 30, 2012. All you have to do is kick back with a glass of eggnog, glogg, or a hot buttered rum, (I don't know about you, but I feel better already) and spin a short seasonal anecdote preferably set in the DC area. Tell us about a favorite haunt at this time of year or maybe a memorable holiday rock show. This contest will run from today until Friday December 21 at 6:12 a.m when the winter solstice will occur here in Washington and sweep us back towards those golden long days of summer. Send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words DRIVE BY CONTEST in the subject heading.
