Win free tickets to the Joan Baez concert at the Egyptian Theatre in Boise

JBPub2003bigFolk singer Joan Baez packed the Egyptian Theatre when she last played in Boise.

She’s coming back on Tuesday, July 8 — and I have a pair of tickets to give away.

Here’s how to win:

Between now and 5 p.m. April 16, correctly answer this question: What famous heavy metal band covered a Baez song on album in 1977?

Email the answer to with your first and last name, which will be used at will call if you win. (I cannot change that name for you, so use the name of the person who will attend the show.) To qualify for the contest, you must type the phrase “WOODSTOCK” in the subject line. One entry per person, please.

Using a random-number generator, I’ll pick a correct email then respond with the good news to the winner by 10 a.m. April 18. That’s when tickets go on sale, so if you haven’t heard from me, you didn’t win and it’s time to purchase seats.
