Win Tickets to Balkan Beat Box…err, Kinda!

bbb.jpg

Under normal circumstances, you would do well to ignore my musical recommendations, unless you’re into accordions and the heavy tuba beats of that chuntaro crap that makes you roll up the car windows in a futile attempt to block it out. But even though I don’t know much about music I’m excited to check out Balkan Beat Box this Friday the 7th at El Rey Theatre as their gypsy-punk style is the kind of sound you want to experience live. Mixing a variety of musical traditions and lots of brass instruments for good measure, it’s the kind of sound that reminds you music is also meant to be celebratory. And did I mention we have 5 pairs of tickets to give away? Click ahead for the details.

UPDATE: Uh, nevermind. Show is canceled.

What does this genre mixing style sound like? Check out this clip here or their myspace page for some more videos on what to expect.

To win a pair of tickets, just name all the Balkan countries, their capitals, their leaders, and the national dish of each. Ha, ha, just kidding. Just leave any old comment with a valid email and I’ll do a random drawing on Wednesday morning.

Err, now for the kinda part. I’m just reading some info on their myspace page and there’s a note that the lead singer was denied entry into the country by Immigration, and it looks like this show might be cancelled. Boo, Hiss, on the pinche Migra! Leave your comments anyways, I’ll find out what’s happening with the show soon enough. Wow, this just might be the shittiest ticket giveaway ever!

Before you ask, the pic above has absolutely nothing to do with anything.

  4. Sorry everyone, but yeah, the show is canceled. Worst ticket giveaway ever. Rickety would have surely won with that brilliant response, though Cake Sprinkles are the national dish of Albania, not Kosovo.
