Free ticket giveaway: Vanessa Carlton at City Winery this weekend

[Congrats to randomly selected winners Ritu S. and Kassie D.!]


Vanessa Carlton will always be associated with her breakout 2002 hit, “A Thousand Miles,” and its sweetly chiming piano riff.

But in the ensuing 15 years, she’s remained a steady presence.

In 2015 she brought her lush piano pop to a fifth studio album, “Liberman” (named for her late grandfather), which yielded a live follow-up the following year.

Last month, Carlton released another live album, “Earlier Things Live,” on her own label and on Saturday, she’ll perform at City Winery .

Thanks to the generous folks there, I have two pairs of tickets to Carlton’s sold-out show, which begins at 8 p.m. with opener Tristen.

To enter:

Email me at by 6 p.m. Thursday, March 16. Please do not enter if you cannot attend and please, only one entry per email address.

You must put “Vanessa Carlton tickets” in the subject line or I will not see your email and you will have absolutely no chance of winning.

I will randomly select — and contact — two winners the evening of March 16. I will also post the winning names here once I’ve received confirmation.

While this isn’t a requirement, I would really appreciate a follow on Twitter or Facebook .

Good luck!
