Sad that you didn't win tickets to see David Wax Museum? It's alright because the giveaways keep on coming!
This time we're giving away a pair of tickets to see The Low Anthem at the 9:30 Club the very next night!
Hailing from Providence, RI, the bands 2008 album Oh My God, Charlie Darwin gained a ton of attention, especially from the NPR crowd. They followed it up this year with Smart Flesh, an album that we happen to think is one of this years very best.
An interesting thing about Smart Flesh, is that the band moved their gear into an abandoned pasta sauce factory to record it. It was an unconventional move to be sure, but the resulting record ended up sounding like just about nothing else out there. Odd maybe, but was a move that apparently paid off.
Check out their video for the album's opener, "Ghost Woman Blues" to see the factory, and the band, in action.
Like it? Love it? Get to the freaking point already, man?
Alright, fine. You've got two days to enter to win tickets to the show this Thursday. All you have to do is answer us a simple question in the comments section below, leave a valid email address that we can contact you at, and you are IN!
Your burning question is:
"What's your favorite type of pasta sauce, and what type of music does it go best with"
Contest ends at midnight tomorrow and the winner will be announced/notified on Wednesday morning.
Congratulations to Lisa for not only winning, but namechecking Eleanor Friedberger, whose album Last Summer is one of our favorite albums of the year! Also your choice of sauce is about the only way to rock it as far as we're concerned. So good.
We had some great comments for this one (delicious too), so in that respect EVERYONE is a winner. Sadly though we could only pick one.
And seriously? Nobody put The Low Anthem as their music? SERIOUSLY?
Didn't win? No worries. This thing keeps on rolling so keep your eyes peeled for our next contest, which should be coming up here pretty quick.
