James Blake at First Avenue: Win a pair of free tickets


​Anyone who crammed into the Entry last May for James Blake's very sold-out Minnesota debut will tell you that the young British sensation was visibly enamored with the historic building in which he was playing.

"When we got here earlier we walked through the bigger room, where we thought we were playing," Blake said. "I thought, why aren't we playing there? That's where Prince played!"

Blake is going to get a chance to play "the room where Prince played" later this month when he returns to Minneapolis to headline the Mainroom on September 28 -- and we want to send one of our readers and a friend to check out the event for free.
