Ticket giveaway: Bootsy Collins at First Avenue


Funk has a friend in Bootsy Collins, one of the most flamboyant and flashy "funk 'n' roll" musicians around. Playing bass with James Brown in the late-'60s and then beaming up to the Mothership to join Parliament-Funkadelic in the '70s, Collins has made a career out of mastering the groove, and his show at First Avenue this Thursday should be a treat for old and new funk fans alike.

[jump] Gimme Noise has a pair of tickets to the show on Thursday, and we'd like to send one of our readers for free. To enter, simply tell us what you love about Bootsy in the comments, and we'll randomly draw a winner at the end of the day.

An important note: Be sure to use a functional email address when you comment, as we use email to confirm with the contest winner. Your email address will not be used for any other purpose.

BOOTSY COLLINS plays this Thursday, June 9 at First Avenue. 18+. $31. 6 p.m.
