Win tix to The Walkmen with Beach House, 1/20 at the Fonda

So if you’re looking for a great band to rock out to after watching the inauguration, may I humbly suggest the fantastic Walkmen? I’ve loved these guys for years since their atmospheric, moody “Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone,” and they’ve continued to grow and develop as a band ever since. Tell me your favorite Walkmen lyric/lyrics in the comments below and if we pick you, voila! You’ve got something to do tomorrow night other than sit around in your PJs and watch the post-inaugural mutual wank-off with Beyonce and U2 while eating Ben & Jerry’s “Yes, Pecan!” Obama-rama ice cream.

Here’s all the info on the show.

  1. i looove the walkmen. there are so many great songs, but my favorite song is “stop talking” — the whole song is really sparse, but absolutely beautiful:

    “Your jokes missed
    Your hands grow to fists
    And your lips purse
    Expecting the worst
    With every word
    That’s how it started
    That’s the problem
    And after we’re done
    I can still feel your eyes on my forehead
    And after we’re done
    I can still feel the pain in my free time”

    i swear, every time i hear the song, i want to curl into a ball and start crying. pleease let me go!

  2. “When I used to go out I would know everyone that I saw
    Now I go out alone if I go out at all.”

    Love that verse!
