The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's GrouponLive deal: for $23, you get one ticket to see Mary Chapin Carpenter with Loudon Wainwright III at the Allen Event Center on Saturday, October 22 at 8 p.m. (up to a $52.85 value including ticketing fees). Seating will be in Section 102, 103, 117, or 118. Parking is available free of charge across the street.
Acclaimed artists Mary Chapin Carpenter and Loudon Wainwright III spin soulful folk-, country-, and rock-inflected tales crafted over decades of entertaining. Having faced crowds at the White House and the Super Bowl with aplomb and without being hit by a football even once, Mary Chapin Carpenter strums through the plucky melodies that garnered her five Grammys, which might include hits He Thinks He'll Keep Her, and Shut Up and Kiss Me. The socially minded crooner will also present new songs from her latest album, The Age of Miracles. Before Carpenter, Loudon Wainwright III takes the stage with a confidence possessed only by recent Grammy winners or Price is Right champions, delighting audiences with tunes culled from more than 40 years of songwriting that have been covered by artists ranging from Johnny Cash to his son, Rufus Wainwright.
