Ben WilliamsSorry, we completely forgot we had these tickets to give away. (Nippertown Headquarters has been Calamity Town this past week, with hot water problems, car transmission problems, big tree falling down problems and, most importantly, coffee pot problems. We’ve been a little preoccupied.)

You can win two tickets to see Ben Williams and Sound Effect @ SPAC this Saturday night (May 22). Bassist Williams is young – just 25 – and red hot, having recently won the oh-so-prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.

Just leave a comment suggesting some chillout music for your stressed-out editors. Be sure to leave a real email address (it won’t show up on the site) so we can contact you if you win. We’ll pick a name at random tomorrow. Please, please, we could use some mellowing-out tuneage. Thank you. Congratulations to Rose! (And thanks for all the listening suggestions; we’re calmly, peacefully, with Zen-like tranquility, wading through them.)

What this show meant was that it was a party time celebration for those old enough to remember the “Big One” … before Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq.
