Preview & Ticket Giveaway | Runaway Gin & Sprocket @ Hard Rock Cafe


It's easy to get wrapped up in all Dead, all weekend, but let's face it... Mr. Trey Anastasio is a key player in all of this, too.

And some people just want their Phish.

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a few weeks until he's band on the road with Mike, Page & Jon, but a South Carolina Phish cover band, Runaway Gin will be setting up shop for the hardcores late night on July 4th.  Sprocket, a band that made our list of up-and-coming jambands, is also on the bill.

This is your obvious choice for after show if you're an out-of-towner staying in the hotel rich, River North / Mag Mile area.

If you want to celebrate Independence Day with the music of Phish, we're happy to set up some of our readers.  We’re giving away a pair and entering is simple, but if you want to increase your odds… follow the directions carefully.

1. Send us an email with the subject “Runaway Chicago” to info @ — in the body tell us your full name and what you'll be doing before the show.

That’s it. You’re entered. We’ll notify the winner on July 2nd. But if you want a few extra entries, let’s get social…

2. Find the link to this page (or our main contest page) in our Facebook timeline. LIKE it, and tag the friend you'd like to go with in the comments — that’ll give you a boost. Be sure to LIKE The Barn on Facebook for it to count!

3. Find our tweet about this page in our Twitter timeline. RETWEET it or REPLY with where you'll be seeing "fireworks" on the Fourth and that will give you one more boost. Be sure to FOLLOW @thebarnpresents on Twitter.
