Elvis Costello is bringing his Spinning Songbook tour to the Pageant on Friday. The show starts at 8:30, the balcony is sold out and general admission is $45. But we have two tickets to give away.
Costello released his first album, My Aim is True, in 1977, and since then he's beco... oh what the fuck are we doing: IT'S ELVIS COSTELLO. You want to go to this show. Contest rules below.
Congratulations, Yo Mama 1977! "The Delivery Man" for Herman Cain really put it over the top for us.
To win: Pick an Elvis Costello song to be used by any of the Republican Presidential candidates as a campaign song -- make sure you name the candidate and the song. Obviously this can be facetious. You don't have to include an explanation, but if you do and it's especially hilarious it will increase your chances of winning.
You may post your submissions in the comments below or on twitter as long as you mention @rftmusic so we see it.
Contest ends Tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5 p.m., at which point we will pick winners. Make sure you include some way of contacting you if you leave a comment.
Winners will be selected by spinning a wheel. But not actually. We'll just pick our favorite.
