Guitarist for The Strokes, Albert Hammond Jr., has a new solo record coming out July 8 entitled Â¿Como Te Llama?. A tour is on the horizon, but in the meantime he’s got a special “invite only” record release show coming up at the Mercury Lounge on July 1. In case you weren’t lucky enough to receive your own special invite to Tuesday night’s show, the good news is, I’m giving away two pairs of tickets to that intimate performance. In order to win, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me the name of another musical “Hammond”. Winners will be picked at random and notified on Friday!
PS In case you don’t win the tickets to this show, don’t despair, you can also catch Albert opening for Regina Spektor at the McCarren Park Pool on August 15, 2008. All Albert Hammond Jr. tour dates after the jump.
