Win FREE tickets to Chrissie Hynde at Chicago Theatre

Win FREE tickets to Chrissie Hynde at Chicago Theatre

Wednesday, November 12th @ 7:30pm
The Chicago Theatre (175 N. State)

Win FREE tickets to Chrissie Hynde at the Chicago Theatre and one GRAND PRIZE winner will win tickets and dinner. With 25 million records sold and over 30 years into her tenure as Pretenders founder and leader, Chrissie Hynde released Stockholm, the first album under her own name. Chrissie says, “It’s the first album with my name on it but it’s not a solo album. In fact, making this album was more of a collaboration than any Pretenders album ever was.” Stockholm has been called “Excellent,” by The New Yorker and “a worthy addition to a catalog of extraordinary work,” by The Wall Street Journal. Stockholm is a suitably impressive addition to the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s staggering legacy. The lyrics are mostly about emotional matters, Chrissie’s unmistakable trademark observations on the dreams and realities of love and life. Chrissie says, “I’ve had enough experience in my life that I can call from a vast well of disappointments. It’s not like a break-up album, but there’s a lot of longing, a lot of angst, probably a lot of disappointment – but if this album is about relationships then I’m just having fun with it actually.” Click here to get more info.

Win FREE passes to see THE PRINCIPLE

Win FREE passes to see THE PRINCIPLE

Friday, October 24th
Marcus Addison Cinema (1555 West Lake Street) in Addison, IL

Win FREE passes to see “The Principle”, one of the most heated debates of the century, coming 2014. Everyone knows that the ancient idea of Earth in the center of the universe is a ridiculous holdover from a superstitious age, right? Modern science has proven that we are nothing special! We inhabit, in Carl Sagan’s words, “....an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.” Well....prepare to be shocked! “The Principle”, destined to become one of the most controversial films of our time, brings before the public eye astonishing results from recent large-scale surveys of our universe- surveys which disclose unexpected evidence of a preferred direction in the cosmos, aligned with our supposedly insignificant Earth.
