If you would like to just show up and pay in cash, entry will be €15 (€5 for students). Of course you won't receive the coupons for food and drink, and the only way to reserve a ticket is still to reserve your ticket here on Eventbrite.
Join us this year to watch all the drama of the 2012 election unfold!
We're going to have a great party this year at Wirtshaus am Bavariapark and we'll be staying up all night to watch the returns come in. But before we switch to TV we'll have some great music, a politics-themed pub quiz, and more.
We're pleased to announce the schedule for the evening!
8:00 - 10:00: Political Pub Quiz (Fun to be had! Prizes to be won!)
10:00 - 12:00: Live Music from the Jason Serious Band (more on them below)
12:00 - 7:00: Election returns start coming in (plus a few surprises to help keep you awake!)
Tickets are €30 per person, €20 for students. At the door you'll receive €15 worth of coupons to use for your food and drink purchases. Oh yes, did we mention the food? There will be a special menu available all night including hamburgers, spare ribs, flammkuchen, as well as plenty of snack food to keep you going - even donuts!
Don't miss out! Come spend an evening as we celebrate democracy and cheer on what will hopefully be another Obama victory!
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com. Please note that in order to pay with cash at the door you need to first select the quantity of tickets you want and then click on "Select other payment options" above. If you want to pay in cash you must pre-order your ticket here before the event!
About the Jason Serious Band
Since they began fusing country, folk, bluegrass and rock in 2011, the Jason Serious Band has toured with an impressive list of international artists including Billy Bragg, Other Lives, Paul Heaton, Nathaniel Rateliff, Timber Timbre and the Levellers. Meanwhile, their debut album steadily collects kudos:
‘Exceptional indie album of folk, country and trad jazz – To say that Jason Serious’ solo debut is accomplished would be to sell it short. Not only is it full of incredibly memorable original songs, but its evocation of American musical vernacular is all the more extraordinary for his ex-pat status and the talented band of Europeans with which he recorded. To write and record something so immersed in American folk, country and early jazz while living in the states would be difficult enough, but to do so in Munich is nearly unimaginable." - No Depression/Hyperbolium
‘Supremely listenable music that has depth, warmth and charm…8/10’ - Americana UK
‘Serious is an amazingly talented songwriter. Like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and the stellar folk talents that came before him, Serious can write a song that moves the listener in time and place.’ - The Ripple Eect
Here is what one critic had to say about the band supporting Other Lives in Berlin:
“Jason Serious was a great surprise. Despite my skepticism regarding country music in the broadest sense, Jason and his band succeeded in winning over the audience. This certainly was in part due to the harmonic refrains, which Jason sang with his Australian banjo player and which sometimes gave the listeners goose bumps.” Iophobia (review of concert with Other Lives, Privat Club, Berlin, November, 2011)
Undercover Folk, the band’s debut album, is now enjoying regular radio play by country and folk DJs across Europe, and the band have just returned from a successful two week tour of Ireland.
