TVD Ticket Giveaway: Justin Jones at the Rock and Roll Hotel, 11/8

Thick with an earthy warmth, Justin Jones makes patient indie rock with flairs of folk, gospel, and homegrown Americana. He creates modern plugged-in country with soft tread choruses and plenty of overdriven guitar soundscapes that share space with acoustic chord vehicles.

The singer/songwriter is coming to Rock and Roll Hotel on November 8, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away.

Jones is a songwriter born of West Virginia landscapes and Americana roots. Since his first in 2004, he has been responsible for five solo studio efforts as well as an EP in the band The Deadman.

In 2012 he released Fading Light, an album of personal subject matter on experiencing and confronting the pains of losing loved ones. The emotionally charged effort has seen critical acclaim from NPR and The Washington Post, who lauded the album’s matured aesthetic and carefully crafted compositions.

So how can you score tickets? Well, it’s easy.

In the comments below, tell us your favorite person, place, or thing from/in West Virginia. My answer is jazz pianist Teddy Weatherford.

The winner will be chosen at noon on Wednesday, November 6.

    My favorite thing from WV is the Eastern Panhandle LGBTQ Alliance of West Virginia.  You wouldn’t think a group like that could survive in WV, but it’s actually been embraced by a lot of people and businesses in the community, which I think reflects that places we sometimes think the worst of are further along than we realize.
