So, don't know if you've heard or not yet, but Tauntaun, an almighty titan of Denver metal, is playing a very special show this weekend at the Bluebird with Ian Cooke and Alan Alda. (Yeah, we know. Pretty sweet bill, right?) Word has it, Mr. Cooke will be joining Tauntaun onstage for a few numbers. That should be swell. You won't want to miss that. And you won't have to. Even if you're running low on dough, we've got you covered. We have several pairs of tickets to the show that we're going to give away at random to whoever knows the answers to the following trivia questions: 1) Name 10 bands Tauntaun members are in or have been in? 2) What planet do Tauntauns live on? And finally, 3) Name three albums that influenced Tauntaun's sound. (This one's admittedly subjective. We're mainly interested in hearing what you hear.) Think you know the answers? Hit us up? Winners will be announced on Friday. In the meantime, get a taste of what you're in for after the jump.
