Chances are if you’re into just about any indie music genre, you’ve either been to or wanted to attend a show hosted by Manic Productions.

Well this could be a great opportunity, as the Connecticut concert promoters are giving away a 10 show pass at tonight’s Flaming Lips and Spiritualized concert at the Toyota Oakdale Theatre.

The pass is good for the winner plus a guest to attend any 10 Manic Production shows for the rest of 2013. To enter, simply go to tonight’s Flaming Lips concert at the Oakdale, stop by the Manic Productions table, and sign up for their mailing list.

Tonight’s concert is the Flaming Lips’s only New England date this summer, and one of their few with Spiritualized. The Lips are known for putting on over-the-top shows, featuring puppets, psychedelic lights, and singer Wayne Coyne in a giant hampster ball. Tickets are still available through Live Nation, click here to purchase.

Bringing the show to Connecticut went through some drama, with several local outdoor venues backing out of agreements before the Oakdale was finalized for the show. Click here for more history on it.
