Wire are a lot more than punk pioneers. Now in their very fertile third period, the legendary UK band has never been content to rest on their (very significant) past achievements, but rather keeps uncovering new sounds and approaching their music from different angles.

They're coming to the Crystal Ballroom next week, on Wednesday, November 20. We're got a pair of tickets to give away to a lucky End Hits reader. Simply send an email to contest at portlandmercury dot com with "Send me to Wire!" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email. We'll select a winner at random and send them on their way to the show. This contest closes Tuesday at 10 am, so enter now!
