Email email@example.com for a chance to win tickets to the Kronos Quartet 40th Birthday Concert this coming Saturday in Berkeley, CA. Bryce will be playing guitar during Kronos’ performance of Aheym. There are still a few tickets available for purchase here.
On a personal note — if you do attend this, I would really appreciate audio or video of that Aheym situation. :)
So, I just won these tickets! I can’t quite believe it. Jaime, I owe you hugs and many beers! :)

An empty concert countdown is a very sad thing indeed :( Someone needs to give songkick a good kick up the bum for you….I’ve got a few things booked for next year already but only a couple of gigs left to finish off the year. Traumatic!
There were actually two shows I considered this week – Julianna Barwick, whom I’ve seen, and John Hopkins/Clark, but it’s Thanksgiving week. Too much! Then there is nothing much until March, except a Kronos gala for $70 nosebleed seats, no thank you. I just heard about an awesome minimalism festival at Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA in March and April. Kraftwerk in March, and death speaks, Missy Mazzoli, and Reich’s Different Trains all in one night April 8! Too bad those two gigs are so many weeks apart. I would have to travel and stay over, but maybe that will be better than going to Cinci for MusicNOW?
An empty concert countdown is a sad thing. Nothing scheduled yet for December or even next year. A look back at my Days Until app had a list of 27 past concerts since mid-January 2013, and that doesn’t include a few that I probably forgot to add to my list. It may not be the most impressive number, but it’s enough to make people in my life say, “ANOTHER concert?!?”
Some of my favorites were The Antlers (finally), Planetarium at Walt Disney Concert Hall, two nights of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, solo Andrew Bird, and Efterklang. Honorable mentions to David Byrne/St. Vincent, METZ, and Wire. My least favorite by far was Mazzy Star. Total snoozefest—in fact my friend said Hope Sandoval herself looked bored.
