Not to be confused with the Mayor of Hawthorne Blvd. (he panhandles with a didgeridoo outside of the Bagdad Theater), Mayer Hawthorne is the honey-voiced crooner who—along with Aloe Blacc and Sharon Jones—is leading a charge of a revitalized, vintage soul music. Hawthorne and the County—his stellar backing band—will be strutting their stuff at the Aladdin Theater on Tuesday, November 9 and we'd like to send you and a guest to the show.

To win, just comment below and explain why the tickets should be yours. The best comment by Friday (that's tomorrow) at 4pm will be the winner. Good luck.

Love Mayer but hate commenting? It's cool, just get your tickets here.
