Stephin Merritt has performed as The Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, Future Bible Heroes, and Gothic Archies. But now our Chicago readers will have the opportunity to see him in a rare solo performance at Old Town School Of Folk Music this Saturday, November 8, at 7 p.m. We’re giving away two pairs of tickets to this show, where Merritt will be performing selections from his extensive back catalog. Merritt has also recently published a charming book called 101 Two-Letter Scrabble Words, which he’s also promoting on this tour. To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Stephin Merritt” in the subject line. Winners will be notified by the end of the day on Friday. Approximate retail value is $60 per pair.
