Listen to win My Morning Jacket tickets

My Morning Jacket closes out their month-long summer tour with Band of Horses Sunday, Aug. 26 at the downtown Raleigh Amphitheater. WKNC listeners will have chances to win tickets all this week, so keep your radio on 88.1 FM.

General admission tickets to the pit area in front of the stage are gone, but tickets for the front two seated sections and the lawn are still available via Live Nation. A dollar of the ticket price will be donated to the Neuse Riverkeeper Foundation.

You can get geared up for the show with this new music video for “Outta My System” featuring Wolfpacker Zach Galifianakis as the wizard!
