"Alt Tuesdays" 1-year anniversary with tickets, CDs and sweet stuff to giveaway at Manray Video Bar
Tuesday night is the big night. It's the 1-year anniversary of "Alternative Tuesdays", a weekly club event for the non-pop listener, at Manray Video Bar.
As we do each week, we'll play music videos by the coolest alternative artists like Radiohead, Scissor Sisters, Goldfrapp, The Killers, Fischerspooner, Franz Ferdinand, Bjork, Ladytron, Siouxie and the Banshees, Travis, Morningwood, and many many more.
But this Tuesday is different. We're celebrating 52 weeks, and running, of "Alternative Tuesdays" and we're combining it with a preview for the Sasquatch Music Festival. Three pairs of tickets, one for each day of the three-day weekend-long concert at The Gorge, will be given away. Plus, CDs by festival artists We Are Scientists, Arctic Monkeys, Matt Costa, Beck and Death Cab for Cutie. Double-plus, we have some cool stuff, such as artist stickers from Wolfmother, Matisyahu, Queens of the Stone Age and We Are Scientists to pass out. Triple-plus, for those that arrive early - a sweet treat when you walk in the door. Hint: it has icing.
Bring a friend or come solo. Either way, the gay boys and gals who dig alternative sounds will be hanging out at Manray Video Bar (514 E. Pine) this Tuesday, May 23. Start time is 9:30pm. No cover charge ever. 21-plus admitted. No charge for entering to win tickets. For those in the mood to cocktail, drink specials will be available by Stoli.
