[GIVEAWAY] Win a Pair of Tickets to Any of THREE Art of Live Festivals Shows!

It was a simple enough concept: Brian McCormac of Old Rock House imagined that an affordable and diverse, multi-venue St. Louis music festival would draw bands to the area in the off-season. Thus, the Art of Live Festival by ORH Concerts was conceptualized. Starting today, the fest will feature local and national acts across several genres. 2015 is AoLF’s inaugural event, so head on over to Do314 and check out the full lineup.


Brian’s team was cool enough to bestow upon IWTAS a pair of tickets to each of three shows over Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week! Read about each one below, and leave a comment (or on Twitter, or on FB) telling us for which show you’d like to be entered to win. 

Wednesday, January 14th at Old Rock House: The Family Crest w/ Scarlet Tanager, 7pm

The Family Crest (San Francisco) makes big, swelling baroque pop and they’re a perfect match for STL’s Scarlet Tanager, one of our city’s most joyful live folk pop bands.

Thursday, January 15th at The Demo: Adia Victoria & Landlady w/ Acorns to Oaks at The Demo, 7pm

“I don’t know nothin’ bout Southern belles / but I can tell you somethin’ bout Southern hell…” croons Adia Victoria (Nashville) on “Stuck in the South”, the only track I can find online from this burgeoning, mesmerizing Tennessean.

I’m especially amped up about this show, since it combines Victoria’s intrigue with Landlady‘s infectious hooks and the recent addition of often dormant and always fascinating Acorns to Oaks.

Friday, January 16th: Swear and Shake w/ Great Peacock & Lizzie Weber at Old Rock House, 7pm

Swear and Shake (Nashville) brings their lively, not-so-innocent folk rock to St. Louis on Friday night. Good luck getting this one out of your head:

Fellow Nashvillians Great Peacock will get the night going along with piano enchantress Lizzie Weber, from right here in town.

Again, leave a comment below telling us which show you’d like to attend to be entered to win a pair of tickets (include a valid email address when prompted), or speak up on our Facebook or Twitter. Don’t delay!

    Adia Victoria is the best! (I’d also love to see Zola Jesus again after that Billiken Club show a few years back…)
