Contest: Win Tickets to Lissie at the Mercy Lounge

Our good friends at AEG Live have given us at N4F a Christmas presents to pass on to one of our awesome followers: tickets to see Lissie at the Mercy Lounge on February 3rd!

She may still be a relative newcomer to the world of music, but both her 2009 EP and 2010 full-length album (much of which were both recorded in Nashville with Band of Horses’  Bill Reynolds) that Paste Magazine called “unbridled, unselfconscious, swirling, head-pounding pop.” She’s toured with Ray LaMontagne, A.A. Bondy, City & Colour, and The Low Anthem and played 10 shows in 4 days at SXSW where she got positive reviews from the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and Perez Hilton.

Here’s how to enter the tickets, just comment on this blog post, the Facebook page, or tweet at me telling me why you want to see Lissie. If you’re entering on Twitter please be sure to use the hatchtag #LissieN4F!

Good luck! I’ll announce a winner on Thursday, December 23rd sometime in the evening.

  • Hook me up Nashville 4 Free!! I’m broke and I love live music!!

  • I’d love to win those Lissie tickets. I wanted to see her when she was playing at the Belcourt earlier this year, but I live 45 minutes away and didn’t have a car at the time. Now that I have a car, I would be more than willing to make the drive to see her!

    I’d LOVE to get to see Lissie live! I was going to go to her show in Columbus, OH this year but it got canceled 🙁

    I spent the first 18 years of my life as a llama farmer in Ecuador. Through my time on the range, I used to dream of living somewhere that music was around every corner. I never thought I’d make it, and spent many a night sitting around a campfire, pouring out these fears and desires to my favorite of our llamas. It’s name was Lissie.

    Years later, on my 18th birthday, I was given 15 minutes free at the Internet cafe in town (I know the owner) and I found this musician named Lissie! I knew it was a sign that I had to move to Nashville, TN and pursue my dreams of being a musician.

    That, and I just love that “Loosen The Knot” song.

    If I had a consolation prize I would give you one, but alas, I do not.

    That was pretty hilarious though.
