This month marks a bittersweet moment for Placentia's psychedelic, tattooed hip-hop hybrid band Kottonmouth Kings. Having just released their latest album Mile High, the group appears to be blazing up the Billboard charts–pun definitely intended. However, just a few days before their new record dropped, we go word that former masked member Pakelika (born Patrick Cochrun) passed away due to health complications. Their show on Saturday, Sep. 1 at the Observatory in Santa Ana will be the band's first show in OC since the tragic loss. If there was ever a time to smoke a blunt in solidarity with your number one stoner rap band, this is probably it. We've got THREE pairs of tickets to give away for the gig. Wanna win one of 'em? Find out how after the jump!
All you have to do to win tickets is leave us a message on Heard Mentality's Twitter (@ocweeklymusic) and/or Facebook with your name and email address! Winners notified on Friday morning. Your name and tickets will be held at will call.
Nate Jackson is the gatekeeper to your dreams of local dive bar stardom. If he writes about you, expect your band to be offered at least one more drink ticket than the rest of the bands on the bill. Get his attention with some groovy tunes and he might just do it. Then, boy will you feel special.
