Win tickets to see Jeru the Damaja in Calgary [Contest]
Calgary, AB – On Jan. 30, our good friends over at True Rhythm bring Jeru the Damaja to Calgary for a show at Dickens (1000 – 9 Ave SW). Y’all probably remember Jeru’s DJ Premier-produced Sun Rises in the East, right? That album was classic ’90s rap. That was important. This show will take you back and hit you right in the solar plexus with some serious nostalgia.
It all goes down with doors opening at 9:30 p.m. Opening support for the evening will be provided by Dragon Fli Empire, Suicide Kings, B. Ravenous, Loyalt’, Iron Lion, and Krooked Krew, as well as DJing provided by Cosm and Phatfingers. Tickets are $22, and are available online as well as at Grass Roots, The Next Level, Le Rock and Sloth Records.
But since we like to deliver the goods, we’ve teamed up with the True Rhythm fam to give away a pair of tickets to the show. Peep contest entry details after the jump.
