THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER. THANKS FOR PLAYING.
OneRepublic is coming the Austin360 Amphitheater on Saturday, Aug. 23. Confounding their early critics, this band of Colorado Springs rockers has spent the last seven years parlaying reasonable success with harmonic, radio-ready jams into international stardom. It’s not necessarily a bad thing. The band’s most recent effort "Native" might not win any originality awards, but it’s loaded with enough sweeping melodies and soaring choruses to move the masses at an arena rock revival.
If you’d like to be our guest at the show email us the answer to this OneRepublic trivia question before noon on Wednesday, Aug. 20:
What hip hop artist gave the band’s career a serious jumpstart with a remix of the single "Apologize"?
