// THE BEST BROOKLYN BOWL SHOW OF 2012 //

Vote for your favorite show in 2012, and enter to win TEN free pairs of tickets in 2013!

2012 was a really baller year, and it’s hard to sum it up one way or another. But we’ve never been one to pass up a challenge, so to hell with it — we’re gonna try.

We (with the help of our Facebook and Twitter friends) chose ten of our favorite shows at the Bowl this year, and are taking it to the world (you) to crown the BEST show at Brooklyn Bowl in 2012. And THEN, we’re going to choose one of the voters randomly, and award them with 10 FREE PAIRS OF TICKETS to shows at the Bowl in 2013. How’s that for a kick-off?

The vote is now open! To vote and enter to win the free tickets, visit us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. You can cast your vote by commenting on our contest photo (the one you see above, with the contenders), or by tweeting at us with the hashtag #BestOfBB2012. We’ll choose a winner on February 1. Good luck!

Blues Traveler Media Recap

Leroy Justice

Thursday, October 11th and Friday, October 12th

Blues Traveler sold out for not just one, but TWO (!!) consecutive shows Thursday and Friday nights, serving up catharsis and rock n’roll on one sonically delicious platter. Frontman and harmonica extraordinaire, John Popper, delighted us with the much anticipated classic, “Runaround” while working his harmonica to the musical core with “Lovin is What I Got,” “Mullin It Over,” “Alone,” “But Anyway,” and “Gina” to name a few.

 To swing an average of 250 shows a year is no easy feat, but Blues Traveler clearly hasn’t lost its touch or charm. Check out the videos and photos to see for yourself!
