Those Pretty Wrongs Competition

Those Pretty WrongsThose Pretty Wrongs are Jody Stephens and Luther Russell - a musical partnership borne of a deep and lasting friendship that dates back to the early ’90s. As the story goes, no music was made between them until about five years ago, when they were united in the cause of a documentary about Jody’s legendary Memphis group Big Star. After releasing their self-titled debut on Ardent Records/Burger in 2016 to a healthy dose of acclaim, they went out on the road, playing for audiences across North America, Australia, Europe and the U.K. During this time they began to forge the sound for their second offering, Zed for Zulu, released 6th September 2019 and they're back on tour again!

We have two tickets to giveaway for both BAAD in Glasgow on Wednesday 6th November and Union Chapel in London on Friday 8th November - a sold out show! Each prize includes a meet and greet too.

If you would like to see Memphis band Those Pretty Wrongs tick below which date (or dates) you are interested in and we will do a lucky draw for one pair of tickets for each venue.
