I just received an email from Filter Magazine letting me know I've won Eels at the El Rey. I can't count the number of times I've responded to their weekly free ticket emails only to come to conclusion that:
a. They laugh at everyone's stories of why they really deserve to go to the show and hand them out to their friends instead.
b. Don't have any tickets to begin with. I mean, come on, every week? Nearly every show worth seeing?
Kudos and thank you Filter.
P.S. Replace "Filter Magazine" with "Trader Joes use-your-own-bag Giveaway" as well. You can see my extatic face on the wall at the TJ's on Pico with a $25 gift certificate in hand.
