It is sort of fun to think back on the fact that in April, 2008, Katy Perry was performing at the Mercury Lounge. Since then, of course, she’s moved on to bigger and better things–Hammerstein Ballroom, Dr. Luke, and inspiring loudness wars in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. But we continue to adore her at SOTC, now maybe more than ever, and so it is with a happy heart that we inform you she is coming back to town on Monday to play a launch for the Windows Phone 7 at Roseland. Concert tickets will be available at various AT&T stores on Monday–more info on that end of it at this Facebook page–but in the meantime, we have a pair of tickets to give away, right now. All you have to do is answer the following trivia question:
What incredibly well-known, now dead musician did Katy Perry’s mother once go on a date with?
First person to email with the correct answer gets the tickets. Good luck! Sorry, we already have a winner!
