The Lonely Island, a comedy/musical troupe, will be at Metro at 5pm Friday for a special event. They'll preview their new record, The Wack Album, do a Q&A, and sign copies of the new record. We have two pair of free tickets for Gapers Block readers.

To win them, send an email to by 10am Friday. Put "Lonely Island" in the subject line and be sure to include your name and mobile number. Who's the Lonely Island? It's a "star-studded comedy trio" says Metro, including SNL alumnus Andy Samberg and writers Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. UPDATE: We have a winner! Congrats to Kacey!
