Coheed and Cambria is coming to the Pageant! The Nyack, New York prog-rock band will perform on Monday, August 26, and we have two tickets up for grabs.

To win, simply tell us why you deserve to go. Be creative! You may enter in the comments below -- make sure you include some way of contacting you, as well as your full name so you can pick up your tickets. We will announce the winner on Monday at 4 p.m.

Check out what Scott Heisel had to say about the band in this 2010 Critic's Pick:

It took a decade of slogging through the trenches of contemporary punk and emo, but Coheed and Cambria finally did it: The band is now considered strictly a rock band, with no silly, hyphen-carrying prefixes before it. Sure, frontman Claudio Sanchez still writes lyrically obtuse concept albums about space and the apocalypse and stuff -- honestly, we stopped paying attention to the lyrics right around 2005's Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness -- but we'll be damned if the actual music hasn't gotten beefier and beefier with each subsequent release. Coheed is the type of band grizzled Rush fans and their Warped Tour-attending kids can bond over. Do we always get it? No. Do we still headbang in unison along with Sanchez and his mighty locks? You better believe it, space cadet.

Check out the video for "The Afterman" from the group's latest album of the same name below.
