To help increase participation in their spring fund drive SANTA MONICA COLLEGE Triple A/News KCRW/LOS ANGELES is trying something different. Those who donate to the public radio station between MAY 4th and 7th are automatically entered to win a trip to see THE NATIONAL on SATURDAY, MAY 15th in NEW YORK!
The sweepstakes prize is a trip for two to see the band perform a special concert at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) to benefit RED HOT AIDS charity. The concert is presented by Zync from American Express.
"The buzz on THE NATIONAL is palpable, and as an early candidate for one of the best albums of the year, this is an amazing opportunity to see the band perform to a hometown crowd in NEW YORK CITY. For a KCRW music fan, this getaway is a dream come true," said JASON BENTLEY, KCRW Music Director and host of Morning Becomes Eclectic.
This special concert event follows the release of THE NATIONAL’s new record, "High Violet," which hits the streets on MAY 11th. The concert will also be a webcast live on YOUTUBE and directed by DA PENNEBAKER.
