Win Tix to See The Raisinets Raveonettes on Friday!

That’s right people! Step right up and get your tickets to see the world-famous Raisinets onstage in all their dessicated, fruity, chocolaty glory…wait, what’s that? Hmm? You mean, it’s not raisins? It’s raving?

Kidding. There’s nothing dessicated or fruity about Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo, even though their names are weird. Although the candy comparison isn’t entirely off–their music lately has become downright dirty, the kind of grungy (not grunge), crusty, fuzzed-out sonic landscapes layered over candy-coated melodies you expected from bands like Jesus & Mary Chain, Stone Roses and more recently, Autolux. So, envision a delicious Mike & Ike dropped on the floor of the dollar movie theatre, and you get my drift. I freaking love this band and I’m pissed I can’t go to this show, but you can, you lucky spud.

To win, tell me your favorite kind of candy in the comments. I’m a candy nut, and we only have one pair of tix to give away, so you better make it good.

  1. Peanut Butter Twix. If you see Peanut Butter Twix anywhere, buy it and I will come to your house, pay you for the candy, and sing you a song. Why this candy is so elusive I will never understand.

    Also, I love The Raveonettes.

  2. As I may be as american as Applie Pie, my favorite candy has to be that Japanese delight – Pocky. There’s just something so interesting about a pretzel-like biscuit dipped in flavors like chocolate, strawberry, banana, coffee, caramel, marble royal milk tea, melon, milk, honey and milk, choco banana, cream cheese, berry, sweet potato, coconut, crunchy cracker pieces in chocolate, pineapple, pumpkin, hazelnut, black sesame, soy bean flour, marron, Brazilian pudding, mikan, blueberry, apple yogurt, green tea.. and they keep thinking of more and more. How cool is that?

    Also, they have the ubiquitous “Men’s Pocky” just to make me feel manly with candy in my hands.

  3. I gotta go with Almond Joy (not it’s lesser cousin Mounds) as it’s an exotic treat every time I get a bite of chocolaty coconutty goodness with that little bonus almond for good measure.

  4. Gematogen! It’s a russian candy consisting primarily of cow’s blood, dating back to the turn of the (20th) century. High iron content in snack form to prevent anemia in children. Tastes like molasses… and no, it doesn’t just put the a-s-s- in molasses.

  5. For pure economy of thought and comical resonance, I’ll go with Almond Roca.

    Breaking it down, in top 10 list form:

    10. Individually wrapped, to promote self control.
    9. Individually wrapped, to prevent it from being tainted by the dirty hands of children.
    8. Classy, gold wrapper makes it feel like a delicacy, rather something you bought at Vons.
    7. Classy, gold wrapper redirects children to the less adult stuff, obviously more fun candy.
    6. Almonds let you delude yourself into thinking that it’s healthy.
    5. You can justify buying it as a cheap gift for someone come Christmas time.
    4. The name is onomatopoeia (see: Snickers)
    3. Toffee!
    2. Chocolate!!
    1. Totally looks like it came from the cat box
