So you've heard about the upcoming Malt Ball at the Bossanova Ballroom on Saturday, March 24. There will be beer. There will be bands. There will be beer and bands. Lots of both. It's going to be the stuff of future legend.

And now here's your chance to win free tickets! We're giving away a pair of tickets (a $20 presale value; they're $25 at the door) to one lucky winner. All you have to do is shoot an email to this address with "Malt Ball" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name. We'll select a winner at random and hook you up with two Malt Ball tickets. The tickets get you a commemorative Malt Ball mug, four tasting tickets, and show entry to see all 12 bands.

Hate contests? Feeling unlucky? Buy your tickets here.
