Ticket Giveaway: MoMA's Annual Film Benefit Afterparty

On Wednesday, November 10th, the Annual Film Benefit at the MoMA will be honoring Kathryn Bigelow– best known for making history as the first woman to win an Oscar in the Best Director category for her film, The Hurt Locker. Or some of you may know her from a little number called Point Break. Either way the lady deserves a party or two.

That said, the MoMA will be hosting an afterparty immediately following the benefit gala with a special acoustic performance by Metric as well as a DJ set by Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. At $100 a pop, and the promise of an open bar (man, museums really do throw the best shindigs), these are the hottest tickets in town… and we’ve got a pair to give to one lucky reader. It’s as simple commenting below!

Vaya Con Dios! <— I just couldn’t resist.
