CONTEST OVER: Win tickets to Widespread Panic at the Idaho Botanical Garden

Congrats to Ryan M., who won the tickets.


Yo, jam-band fan. Stop twirling that hula hoop for a sec and win yourself some tickets.

I’m giving away a pair to Widespread Panic’s gig July 10 at the Idaho Botanical Garden.

Here’s how to make them yours.

Between now and noon July 5, correctly answer this question: What touring Grateful Dead cover band did guitarist Jimmy Herring used to play in? Email the answer to with your first and last name, which will be left at will call if you win. To qualify for the contest, you must type COBHAM” 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 on July 5.

Remember, if you aren’t lucky enough to win, you can still buy tickets at TicketWeb.
