    Enter to Win Tickets to Punch Brothers' Carnegie Hall Performance and After Party
    C. Taylor Crothers

    Punch Brothers' US tour heads to Albany, New York, for a Thursday night performance at The Egg's Swyer Theater, before making its way down to New York City for a monumental performance in Carnegie Hall's main hall, Stern Auditorium, Friday night at 8 PM. The concert marks the band's return to the Hall after its March 2007 premiere of the Chris Thile-penned piece The Blind Leaving the Blind in Zankel Hall. The work went on to form the centerpiece of Punch Brothers' Nonesuch 2008 debut album, Punch. Back in 2007, the band was billed as The Tensions Mountain Boys, so this Friday's performance offers a chance to experience both the band's debut in Stern Auditorium and its first at Carnegie as Punch Brothers.

    To celebrate the occasion, Nonesuch Records is offering two free tickets to the show, plus a copy of the album Punch. E-mail info@nonesuch.com for your chance to win. Entries must be received by Thursday, October 15, at 2 PM ET. Winners will be notified shortly thereafter. No purchase is necessary.

    As a special added bonus, the winners will also receive free entry into the concert's after party, courtesy of the makers of the forthcoming documentary How to Grow a Band, a film about Punch Brothers. The film follows the band from its first show at a folk festival in Scotland through more than two years and across 25 cities. You can check out a scene from the documentary, in which the band performs Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major on banjo, mandolin, and fiddles, at nonesuch.com/media. And learn more about the film at punchbrothersmovie.com.

    To be sure of a seat to this Friday's concert, visit carnegiehall.org to purchase tickets now.
