Win Tickets for Constantines in Columbus OH

MP3: Our Age by Constantines

Benco is bringing Constantines from Toronto to The Summit on Friday, December 12. Has this band ever played here before? I’m not sure…

Anyway, we’ve got two pairs of tickets to giveaway to you, the lucky readers of donewaiting.com. To enter, send a blank e-mail to contest@donewaiting.com with the subject line CONSTANTINES. Make sure your name is in your e-mail address. We’ll choose winners on 12/10.

The band also recently released a limited edition 7″ with Feist. Click here to hear the song and order the record.

Double bonus: Our main man Clint Reno did a poster for the Constantines awhile back and it’s still for sale and it’s still dope as hell.

Breaking: Benco Presents and Milo Arts Part Ways

Ben Hamilton, owner of Columbus concert promoting agency Benco Presents, has split ways with Milo Arts. As you may remember, Ben has recently started booking some really great shows there, including Silver Jews, Pinback, Damien Jurardo, among others. It also generated a lot of positive press from the local media, considering there has been a gaping hole that needed to filled in regards to music venues that can fit around 300-500 people.

Things started to look strange when Saturday’s show with The Dodos was moved to The Summit just a few hours before start time.

Ben is moving all the Milo shows to other venues he works with, so hopefully his upcoming calendar doesn’t take too much of a hit.

The first event being moved is Mirah on Friday. It’ll now be an early event, doors at 6, music at 7 at Skully’s. We’re gonna give away a pair of tickets to that show to cheer up the mood. Send a blank e-mail to contest@donewaiting.com with the subject MIRAH.
