First, the press release:

New York, NY – This April 16th, 2012, at a time when our right to basic health care is under attack, New York dream pop band, Asobi Seksu, along with special guests North Highlands and Little,Big, will play the fifth annual Roe on the Rocks benefit concert at The Highline Ballroom. Award-winning comedian and writer, Sara Benincasa, will be the evening’s emcee.  All proceeds from the event will go to Planned Parenthood of New York City.

The Roe on the Rocks concert is held every year to recognize Roe v Wade, the historic Supreme Court Case which 39 years ago confirmed women’s right to privacy and thus access to abortion services.  The show couldn’t come at a more important time – amidst the worst attacks on not just reproductive rights but access to basic health care. Past acts have included Regina Spektor, Thao with The Get Down Stay Down, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and (others).

What:     5th Annual Roe on the Rocks Benefit Concert for Planned Parenthood of New York City

Who:       Asobi Seksu
Sara Benincasa
North Highlands
Little,Big
Planned Parenthood of New York City

You can buy tickets here for $25 a piece. The headliners are a great band:

But I also have two free tickets to give away! What I’m going to do is ask you to answer a trivia question by going on Twitter, and sending me your answer with the hashtag #pandachoice. I’ll take the names that answer correctly, and draw out of a hat. I’ll let you know on Sunday if you’re the winner, and announce it on Monday. 

The trivia question: What Supreme Court decision established the right of unmarried people to access contraception?
