As we finally begin to head into spring, we're glad to see a new venue in our midst. This weekend, Maison in Costa Mesa is hosting a soft opening on March 1 and they're inviting you to be a part of it. It's also technically the rebirth of a classic OC haunt known as the Lion's Den (Google it, youngsters). This new chapter for the hallowed space looks to be young and trendy enough for today's crowd. And they already seem to have some good sense when it comes to booking talent. LA band Gateway Drugs are kicking this place of with a riotous set of pounding garage pop and psychedelia with support from fellow SoCal buzz band Hunny. Making waves in the local scene for a few years now, we're betting that they're a perfect gateway to Maison's vibe. For anyone starved for a new club experience celebrating live music, you'll want to be there on Sunday. And the folks over at Maison have been good enough to give us two pairs free tickets to the event. It's first come, first served and they're gonna go fast. So how do you get them? Find out below.
All you have to do is send us a message to OC Weekly Music's Facebook page, which you can find here. First two people to tell us their favorite Gateway Drugs song get a pair of tickets each. Hurry up while you can and we'll confirm your winners today on the Facebook page. Get going! Show starts at 8 p.m. $8 at the door, 21+. For more info on the show, visit Maison's Facebook page.
