imageWhat’s better than a new album from Michelle Malone and a live June 19 show with her and the Michelle Malone Banned? For fans of the local lesbian legend, the only way to top it is to attend the show for free.

Eddie’s Attic, Atlanta’s premiere singer-songwriter venue, put four tickets to the show in our hot little hands. Want us to slip two of those tickets into your pocket? The Decatur nightspot told us they love Project Q Atlanta readers, so we make it pretty easy.

But before we do, a little more enticement: Malone (photo)—with almost two dozen solo and group, live and in-studio albums to her credit—and the Banned recorded the singer’s birthday show at Eddie’s for the new CD. It covers some old favorites and some new material.

Attendees get the CD free at the June 19 show with the purchase of the cool t-shirt (while supplies last). As diehard fans know, Southern blues rocks and that powerful passionate voice will be on display at the performance and on the CD.

“So how do I get a chance at my free tickets, already?” you ask. All we ask in return is for you to sign up for our e-newsletter here. That’s it. And don’t worry. It’s free, we don’t spam people, and we never share your e-mail address with anyone.

Each Thursday’s e-blast gives you a preview of our Gay Agenda calendar of events for the weekend, a roundup of our most recent photo galleries from LGBT Atlanta, and a look at our most popular headlines of the week. There are more special surprises in there from our advertising partners, as well. View last week’s newsletter for a sneak peek.

From the new subscribers, two lucky winners will be chosen at random to receive two tickets each. That’s two pairs of tickets to two different winners. The only rules of engagement are that we will close the contest on Sunday, June 13 and notify the winners at the e-mail addresses they provide beginning June 14.

Winners will have 24 hours to accept the tickets, or we will select someone who’s quicker on the draw for the honor.

If you’d rather not gamble with your chance to see your girl in concert, you can buy tickets to the June 19 Michelle Malone Banned show at Eddie’s Attic online. Tell ‘em you heard about it through Project Q Atlanta.
