Need Something to do Wednesday?


Do you like music? Do you like subverting corporate business models and thereby gaining the illusion of sticking it to "the man" while at the same time feeling like a rocket scientist? Well then, boy howdy do we have the event for you today!

Portland, Ore., indie rockers and "close personal friends" of Conan O'Brien, Blitzen Trapper play the Knitting Factory tonight for $13.

But why pay when there are two free ways to see Blitzen Trapper tonight?

You could stop by the Record Exchange and catch their free in-store show at 6:30 p.m.

Or ...

While at The Record Exchange, you could buy a copy of their new album, Destroyer of the Void, for $11.99 and get a free ticket to the show.

Do the math: Two shows + one album = $11.99. One show - one free show - one album = $13.

You're a genius. Maybe now MENSA will take you.
