It's a giveaway mini-week this week on End Hits! (Mini-week meaning it starts on a Tuesday and will probably end on Thursday.) Every day, for three whole days in a row, we're giving away all kinds of good tickets just for you, dear readers. So let's start things off!

Tomorrow evening, Wednesday January 26, Syracuse band Ra Ra Riot roll through town with their durable, optimistic indie rock. You like Ra Ra Riot. We know! That's why we're giving you a chance to win a pair of tickets to the show tomorrow at the Hawthorne Theatre. All you have to do is leave a comment below, explaining why you're the most eligible candidate to win these tickets. Be sad, be funny, be honest, be stupid, it doesn't matter. We'll pick the winner, probably at random, and send you on your way to the show. Good luck! Contest ends tomorrow (January 26) at noon.

Oh, you're not sure if you want to go to the show? Listening to this should help.
