R.E.M., Warner Bros. Records, and Cinema Purgatorio present This Is Not A Theatrical Release, limited sneak preview screenings of the upcoming R.E.M. un-concert documentary This Is Not A Show: Live at the Olympia in Dublin.

In their acclaimed 2007 “working rehearsals” in Dublin, R.E.M. set up camp at the venerable Olympia Theatre in Ireland’s capital city and tested new material over five nights before passionate, max capacity crowds.

Live At The Olympia gives fans an opportunity to hear those songs at their earliest stages of development. In addition to the new material, the band also served up several songs from across their nearly thirty year career. The film will screen one night only in select towns across the U.S. and looky here, cause I have a set of tickets to give away to one lucky reader for the NYC show!

The screening takes place on Oct 27 at the Cinema Purgatorio at the Kraine Theatre (NYC). The winner will be selected at random and you have until this Friday, October 23 at 5pm to enter. Simply email me here with the subject line "REM NYC TIX!"

This is a "not-to-be missed" opportunity, so enter now! Watch the trailer here to further entice you.
