KCRW Announces “The National Live in NYC” Flyaway Sweepstakes

Written by


KCRW is thrilled to announce a special sweepstakes for a trip for two to New York City to see The National perform a special concert at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) on Saturday May 15 to benefit Red Hot AIDS charity. The concert is presented by Zync from American Express.

“The buzz on The National is palpable, and as an early candidate for one of the best albums of the year, this is an amazing opportunity to see the band perform to a hometown crowd in New York City. For a KCRW music fan, this getaway is a dream come true,” said Jason Bentley, KCRW Music Director and host of Morning Becomes Eclectic.

The majority of KCRW’s funds come directly from member donations. Anyone who joins, renews or makes an additional donation to the non-profit station between Tuesday, May 4 and Friday May 7 at noon will be automatically entered to win. KCRW Star Members, who contribute on a monthly basis, are automatically entered as well.

The winner will fly to New York City on Friday, May 14 and have two nights at the ACE Hotel in Manhattan. Transportation to the hotel and concert will also be taken care of.

This very special evening of music will be webcast live on You Tube and directed by DA Pennebaker.

This special concert event follows the release of The National’s highly anticipated new record, High Violet, on May 11. KCRW will be streaming the album in its entirety on the Album Preview page: http://www.kcrw.com/albumpreview
