TVD Ticket Giveaway: Lucero at the 9:30 Club, 4/25 (and a chance to win a signed poster!)

I’ve been reading a lot about Lucero shows lately. (It’s kind of my job.) It seems they’ve been particularly rowdy lately, and it seems people have been really diggin’ ’em that way.

This got me thinking, “Where have I seen the rowdiest Lucero shows?” to which I answered myself (because geniuses answer themselves, ya know), “Easy: Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and New York City.”

If you’re one of those folks who digs being covered in beer and bruises when you leave a show, then you’re in luck. It just so happens we’re giving away two tickets to the April 25th Lucero show (with J. Roddy Walston & the Business as the opener!) at the 9:30 Club right here in Washington, DC.

Enter to win a pair of tickets for Wednesday’s show by telling us in one or two sentences about one of your favorite rowdy show-going experiences (Lucero or non-Lucero, doesn’t matter).

That’s not all, though! April 25th also marks the one-year anniversary for Dear Ben Nichols, a fansite yours truly runs, about, well, Lucero front man Ben Nichols. To celebrate, DBN is giving away an autographed copy of the Women & Work promotional poster. Head on over for a chance to win it.

Two separate winners will be chosen for the pair of tickets and the autographed poster at noon on Tuesday, April 24th!

    The rowdiest concert I can recall was Social Distortion at the 9:30 about a year and a half ago.  There was a lot of slammin’ going on to my immediate left, and people kept slamming into me despite my wishes to the contrary.  The crowd behind me was pushing forward so hard, I had to lean back as hard as I could just to stay upright.  I’ve never been so squished in my life.  My body was sore for days.
    Coincidentally, Lucero opened for Social D!

    Jane’s Addiction at the University of Maryland back in 1990 was pretty crazy. It seemed the entire place was the mosh pit, everyone was smooshed together and kinda moving whether you wanted to or not.  Feet kicking you in the face with stage diving, picking people up off the floor that fell down.  Crazy.  Great show, one of my all time favorites!

    Cake at Bumbershoot in Seattle. The arena was such a mess of activity that I lost my friend in the crowd (pre-cell) and found her hours later at a McDonalds a mile away.

    Hot Water Music at the First Unitarian Church in 22nd and chestnut Philadelphia-1999? place was a giant sweatbox, at some point even a dude in a wheel chair (wheel chair and all!) we’re being passed around!

    Getting pepper sprayed at my first concert as a young teenager – growing up in Savannah, Georgia when White Zombie at the height of their popularity. Savannah’s located near three army bases and there was a very rowdy contingent of soldiers of all types – it was mayhem on a scale I’d never seen since.

    Rowdiest was Social Distortion at Ventura Theater in CA in the mid-90s. A raging slam-fest with a broad audience. Until Billy Idol came out for a guest appearance and the tattoo’d bikers came out of the rafters & joined in. It was absolutely AWESOME! Slamming’ & Jammin’ at it’s absolute pinnacle…..

    The rowdiest I’ve seen was during the Vans Warped Tour years ago, when Flogging Molly was playing.  Mosh pit going, and I’m kinda small, so it didn’t take long for me to get tossed around!

    Rowdies Lucero show I’ve seen was at Black Cat a few years ago. After the crowd kept handing Ben Jameson after Jameson, he kept playing louder and faster, until he just passed out in the middle of the show.  After about 3 minutes, he got up, walked right off the front of the state and sat at the bar.  The crowd went wild.

    My favorite “Ben moment” was when I was first introduced (literally) to the band. I was working at a restaurant, they were at my table and I didn’t know who they were. They didn’t mention how awesome their band was, but the name on their card was “Lucero,” so I went home and googled them and have been a fan since. Plus they left an awesome tip.

    Comments are now closed, folks. Congrats, @elizathreat, you’re the winner of two tickets to see Lucero at the 9:30 Club in DC tomorrow, 4/25! (The wheel chair being passed around was quite impressive!)
