Who wants to win some tickets to the Widespread Panic show this month at the AMP?

If you said “me,” “I do,” or “this guy” and pointed to yourself just now, keep reading. The band’s coming to town on Friday, June 17, and we’ve got a pair of general admission passes to give away.

Widespread Panic has been together for nearly 30 years this year. Formed by original members vocalist/guitarist John “JB” Bell, bassist Dave Schools and late guitarist Michael Houser, who lived together in a suburban house in Athens, GA, the band released their 12th album, Street Dogs late last year.

They’re best known for their live show, however, and their famously loyal following that follows them from city to city to experience their improvisational wizardry on a nightly basis.

Tickets to the show are $35-55.50, but you won’t have to worry about all that if you just win the following giveaway.

How to enter

The winner of this giveaway will receive two tickets, meaning if you win them, you’ll have to take somebody with you to the show. Leave a comment telling us who you’re taking if you win, and you’re entered.
