Speedy Ortiz has been up there on my “favorite bands that are alive while I’m alive” list for years now, and with the release of their newest album Twerp Verse, I am happy to say that I am still very happy that I’m alive while they’re alive. I am also very happy that I’m alive while you’re alive, because Speedy Ortiz are playing two shows in the Bay Area this weekend. And due to the fact that you are alive (even if you’re not happy about it), you can go see Speedy Ortiz live in concert in person, with your own living body. You can catch one of my top favorite living shredders and lyricists Sadie Dupuis while you’re both alive. We at The Bay Bridged are so happy to give you the chance to win tickets to see this band that is alive while you’re all alive.
To enter for a chance to win tickets to see Speedy Ortiz at Social Starline Club on June 9 in Oakland or Cafe Du Nord on June 10 in San Francisco, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Speedy Ortiz” in the subject line, your full name in the body of the email, and show you’d like to attend. A winner will be selected at random and notified via email.
