What You'll Get
Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Today's Groupon helps you transcend your boredom: for $10, you get two admission tickets and two drink tickets for the Judd Hoos concert (up to a $28 value) on August 28 at 9:30 p.m. at Dell Rapids Event Center. Two drinks from the full bar (up to an $8 value) are included with admission.
A native South Dakota rock band—and a refreshing change of pace from the state's hundreds of cello-and-alpenhorn chamber quartets—Judd Hoos traveled more than 40,000 miles in 2009 alone, bringing its brand of high-octane rock ‘n’ roll to every one of its 114 shows in nine states (check out video clips here). Lead singer Bob Zwart, guitarists Andy Young and Zach Fronce, bassist Chris Hornick, and drummer Shane “Funktasic” Funk have left many heads banged and fingers devil-horned in their wake after opening for bands such as Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, and Big Head Todd. Along with playing favorites from its first album, Better Intentions—including stand-out tracks including the high-energy “Fifer” and the title-track power ballad—the band will also give its audience the first listen to a lot of new material and will avoid the long harp solos that mar so many rock shows.
The Dell Rapids Event Center can only try to contain these musical mavens as they make their sonic offering to the gods of rock. The venue is outdoors, allowing spectators to safely release their flock of “YEAH!” and “WOO!” shouts into the wild. Judd Hoos's four-man auditory assemblage will also be manning the center's state-of-the-art sound system so that the furious sound waves are never drowned out by your own clapping hands. The band will even politely ask the audience if it is ready to rock—and will wait patiently on-stage for up to five minutes until you feel emotionally ready to start rocking again.
