This Saturday: Win tickets to Skrillex at the Ritz Ybor on Dec. 16
You could make a case that the hottest concert ticket of 2011 wasn't Lady Gaga or Taylor Swift at the St. Pete Times Forum, or Jason Aldean at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre. It might just be Skrillex on Dec. 16 at the Ritz Ybor.
The dubstep DJ took the music world by storm this year, scoring a Best New Artist Grammy nomination, landing on the cover of Spin, getting his hit Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites into commercials and becoming the new face of electronic music in America. As a result, his Dec. 16 show has been sold out since EARLY SEPTEMBER. Seriously.
Which is why it's a big deal that the Ritz Ybor is giving away a pair of Skrillex tickets this weekend.
On Saturday (12/10), the Ritz will present the "Skrillex SKRavenger Hunt," a photo scavenger hunt benefitting the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. You'll be required to go out and snap an array of photos of objects around Ybor City. First one back gets the tickets.
Registration is $25 per two-person team. Check-in is at 12:30 p.m. at the Ritz (1503 Seventh Ave.), with the hunt starting at 1 p.m. It should last about two hours. Register your team at the Ritz Ybor box office, either in person or over the phone (813) 248-9210. You can also e-mail chelsea@theritzybor for details about the hunt.
