      I must have this prize because my soul is desperately needing some new interpretations of soul music. It's craving it more than it's ever craved any music before. Annnd I'm a music director, so any introduction to new music for my projects is always helpful.

      I'd love to have these free tickets because I've been fans of most of these artists from jump. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson being at the top of the list, no doubt. I'm a proud Angeleno and I love to be apart of the wonderful music happenings our amazing city has to offer. Thanks for the opportunity to win the tickets! Keep feeding this vital info to the masses!

    • I Am I Be

      Sup Ego! I need these tickets because I'm out of work right now and my girl needs to go out on a date. We have been fans of Stonesthrow since 2004 and a fan of Mochilla since they brought out Azymuth in 2008. We went to the Suite for Ma Dukes and Arthur Verocai shows and they were life changing! To me, it really is a once in a lifetime experience to sit in on these Mochilla/Timeless events. I promise these tickets won't go to waste!

      To whom this may concern:
      Because, it'd be A Strange Arrangement, & it Just Aint Gonna Work Out if you give it to these other people. I've been Hooked and been Dreaming A Long Time, that i've got The Ills, to see this Green Eyed Love. So, i'll Stick Around till you Let Me Know The News... Maybe So, Maybe No?
      Sincerely, Mayer Hawthorne's Biggest Fan
