FREE TICKETS: First City Festival, Monterey, CA 8/24-25 2013

May 31. 2013 | By Staff

Not to be outperformed by neighbors to the south or north, the central coast steps up with the First City Festival. () Based on the lineup, it makes a strong case for a hipster’s happiest place on Earth. Sorry Four Barrel.

To honor the name of this festival: First City (Monterey is historically known as the “first city” of California) we want to know about your first concert experience. The winner will be granted a pair of general admission tickets! You can email us your submission here: (put “first time” in the subject line.) Or Tweet at us with the hashtag #Owlfirst. (We favor Tweets.)

Winner announced 6/17.
