Giveaway

Derby Days has been known for nearly a decade as a festive day of unique, top-notch performances, which then donates all proceeds to the fantastic organization that is the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.  This year, Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow is playing, along with a live set by The Knocks, and USC’s own Dr. Fresch.  I’m of course skeptical of any DJ set, particularly when performed by an artist known for a band and not a DJ act, but a Miike Snow DJ set is a clear exception.  I highly recommend catching this elusive performance whenever possible.  And, to make your life a little easier,  we’ve got 4 pairs of tickets to give away.  Enter here:
