Win Tickets and Dinner for Two: Jeff Tweedy Plays Georgia Theatre Friday

Not only are we giving away a pair of tix to the concert, but one lucky commenter will also receive a voucher for dinner for two on the Georgia Theatre rooftop.

To enter, tell us in the comments below why YOU deserve the prize package. We’ll choose a winner Friday at 2:30 p.m.

From this week’s paper:

Jeff Tweedy’s history with Athens is well documented. Careful readers of liner notes know that Uncle Tupelo recorded March 16–20, 1992 at John Keane Studios with Peter Buck in the producer’s seat, and Wilco made several stops in town on its way to alt-whatever fame. But Spencer Tweedy, Jeff’s 18-year-old son and his collaborator on the forthcoming album Sukierae, has, save a few visits to Texas, no real history with the South. This will change when the duo—appropriately and simply named Tweedy—tours in support of the new record this fall.
