Ticket Giveaway: Twin Shadow at Coco66

Dudes, if you’re not listening to Twin Shadow, I don’t even know how to explain how disappointed I am with you. The moniker of Bushwick’s well-dressed George Lewis Jr., Twin Shadow’s debut album has been literally spinning on repeat on every possible audio device in my apartment. Forget is a seamless blend of smooth lust infused vocals, synth lullabies, and whispering drum beats, not to mention “I Can’t Wait” induces heartfelt Molly Ringwald dances like woah.

Unfortunately for you, Terrible Records isn’t releasing this lovely gem until September 28th– giving you plenty of time to long for June once again. Seriously though, I can’t stop listening to these new wave jazz sounds that make me want to “secret handshake” in white linens. Mr. Lewis, I hope this stuff is getting you laid.

So if you’re looking to dance and make sexy time, check out Twin Shadow with our faves Hooray for Earth at Coco66 this Friday… or just win a pair of tickets for you and a friend by commenting below (and using your real email) about how you may or may not ooze sex just like this man’s chest hair.

Ticket Giveaway: The Acorn at Littlefield

As the follow up to Glory Hope Mountian, a concept album focusing on the life of frontman Rolf Klausener’s mother, The Acorn‘s No Ghost equally echoes the intimate boom of folk and frenzy of romantic classic Southern rock roots. In this case, though, it’s the far North that has inspired this mix of acoustic and electric sounds that are able to hold up to a wide array of celebration– candlelit dinners, frolicking through the backwoods of the Québécois cottage the album was recorded in, or speeding below ground in large tin cans marked by numbers and letters.

With three upcoming shows in the NYC area, it would be ill-advised to miss these boys. Heck, I say make the trip to Hoboken if you have to. But since we have a soft spot for Takka Takka, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to The Acorn’s final night in town before they head back to dear ‘ole Canada.

For your chance to win tickets to see The Acorn with Takka Takka and Ola Podrida at Littlefield on Thurs. July 15th, just comment below… and please make sure you use your real email address, since that’s how we’ll be notifying you of your win. Also, we’re giving away a pair of tix to check out Beirut that very same night, so why not try your luck at both!?

No Ghost is currently available via digital release on Bella Union.

Ticket Giveaway: Zach Condon Tells Us Ghost Stories at the Guggenheim

The first installment of the Guggenheim’s Dark Sounds, a three-part series of live music performances accompanying the exhibition Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance, kicks off on July 15th with Beirut, freshly off a two night stint at Music Hall of Williamsburg (with openers, and personal faves, WOOM).

…the series takes its thematic cue from the conceptual threads that weave through Haunted, aiming to evoke the exhibition’s elements of melancholy, ghostliness, the uncanny, and our collective and individual obsession with accessing the past. The series title is borrowed from the writings of Montague Rhodes James (1862–1936), who is often described as the father of the modern ghost story.

Of course, the show is SOLD OUT but we have a pair of tickets for one lucky reader. Just head on over to our Facebook page and tell us why you deserve them. Next up for Dark Sounds is Andrew Bird and Ian Schneller, which sounds equally as amazing and isn’t sold out… yet.

Ticket Giveaway: Cass McCombs & Lightspeed Champion at Bowery Ballroom

I don’t think I need to do much convincing for you to head over to our Twitter page and enter in this contest. Just watch the dreamy video for “You Saved My Life” to remind yourself how much you love Cass McCombs. And once you you do that, tweet this (it’s as easy as copy & paste):

I love @freedubya but I’d love them more if they gave me Cass McCombs & Lightspeed Champion tickets!

This is one of the few shows Lightspeed Champion will play with a full band this year, so it should be a real treat. Check out the video for “Marlene” after the jump.
