Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett is pleased to inform you of his new self-titled solo album, on which he’s backed by his band the Dead Peasants. He’s also pleased to inform you they’ll be playing at the Mercury Lounge on Saturday, August 14, in totally stunning New York City.

And Popdose is pleased to announce it has two tickets to give away to one lucky reader in our great nation’s northeastern quadrant. The details couldn’t be simpler: just e-mail dw.dunphy@gmail.com with the subject line “Dead Peasants”; if you’re the fifth person to respond, as ascertained by your e-mail’s time stamp, you win! Here are the fine points: only one entry per person, and no employees of Popdose, or relatives of employees, are eligible.

For anyone else looking for a night out with Chris Shiflett & the Dead Peasants, the details are at their MySpace page. Good luck to everyone, and please have your entries in by 11 PM EST tonight, August 4, so we can make sure you’re added to the Mercury Lounge’s guest list in time for the show.

This ticket giveaway is brought to you by RCA Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.
