Jose Gonzalez: 2 Nights At Yoshi's, Ticket Giveaway

If you find yourself desiring a more chill vibe than Spoon's rocktastic extravaganza at The Fillmore, might we suggest that you jump across the Bay and check out Jose Gonzales at the original Yoshi's? He'll be playing Tuesday and Wednesday nights, a late and early show for each.

The singer-songwriter brings to the table a pretty folky vibe, but with some clear (see above) roots in the world of rock music. His voice has been (understandably) compared to Nick Drake, but to our ears he puts his own spin on things with a bit more of a raw, gritty vibe than Drake ever had. Getting to see him in a small room like Yoshi's will no doubt be a treat, not only for the intimate vibe, but the awesome acoustics as well.

Here's an added bonus: we've got a pair of tickets to give away to the Tuesday night late show at 10 PM. All you have to do is email with the answer to the following question: What Gonzalez song was used for a commercial filmed in San Francisco? Please include your name and email address with the answer. Get your entries in by 10 AM tomorrow (9/23), we'll announce the winner soon thereafter. Good luck!
