‘Cause if ya do, I gots the hook up! All three bands are playing the Rock and Roll Hotel in DC on March 31st. This is your chance to go, for free. Just drop me a comment and include your e-mail address, and I’ll pick a random commenter in a few days. If you win, you and a friend will be going to the show!
Here’s a bit about the bands:
Land of Talk are from Montreal, but they don’t make art music–they make alternative-sounding rock like this:
Speak to Me Bones-Land of Talk
Field Music are jazzier, but they’re sharing the stage on tour with stars-of-the-moment Tokyo Police Club, so already you know it’s not pure jazz. But why talk about music when you can taste it?
You’re So Pretty-Field Music
Shorter, Shorter-Field Music
You Can Decide-Field Music
I’m Tired-Field Music
And finally, the headliners are getting hype on MTV’s Subterranean these days, indie college rock band Menomena. Party music.
E is Stable-Menomena
Should be a fun show.
