Well, after setting up a giveaway for a contemplative modern-folk Christmas CD and concert tickets in New York City, I guess the (relative) West Coasterner in me couldn't resist offering a sunny West Coast alternative (no California residence required).
It's for the fun debut album from the Southern California all-star band Jelly of the Month Club and their Sunday, January 19 family-friendly concert at the House of Blues in Anaheim. The debut Introducing Jelly of the Month Club is a bunch of danceable fun, and I think their energetic ska-punk sound will translate well to a live setting.
So, by Friday, December 6 at 8 pm West Coast time, enter to win either the CD or the concert tickets by leaving a comment below (one per family, please) about your favorite Southern California memory (either real or just via book, music, or movies). I'll pick two winners the randomly -- the first winner will get the choice of the CD or the tickets, and the second winner will get what the first didn't select. Please remember to leave your e-mail address (shown only to me) so I can e-mail you if you're a winner.
Thanks for reading and entering, thanks to the House of Blues Anaheim for the CD and the tickets, and good luck!
