So how does chillwave sound around now, LA? Not bad right? Well I’ve got good news for you. I have an extra pair of tickets to see chillwave darlings, Neon Indian this Friday at the Music Box.

For the uninitiated, know that Rolling Stone named Neon Indian one of the seven best new bands of 2010, and Pitchfork called Psychic Chasm “one of the year’s [2009] most replayable albums.” Neon Indian is the brainchild of Alan Palomo who composes all of the music and is racking up quite a resume for a 21-year-old (see Ghosthustler or VEGA). Neon Indian will be joined by Prefuse 73 and Miniature Tigers on this tour.

Along with most others branded with the label, Palomo himself questions whether there’s even really such a thing as chillwave. Me, I can’t imagine a better way to beat the heatwave than going to this Friday’s show, imaginary genre or not. Wanna go? Tell me how much in the comments below, and one person will be drawn randomly by the end of the day Wednesday. Don’t forget to supply an email address when you comment so I know how to get in touch with you.

  1. I can’t put this album down. Neon Indian is ‘Terminally Chill’ with their awesome chillwave grooves. ‘I dont know if you know’ but I have listened to this album ‘6669’. A must for anyone.

  2. I love to go see Neon Indian. Such a great band and chill music. Dig them so much. And I have never won anything in my life so heres a chance to win. I would appreciate it so much If I won. Thank you!

  3. I would really love to go, seeing Prefuse 73 would be a great experience. That man is a genius. Knowing how much I enjoy Guillermo Scott Herren, I know who must be playing with musical genius alike. I’m always open to new music, and I am sure I am missing out on Neon Indian. Thanks !

  4. I want to see Neon Indian because I haven’t seen him yet and have tried to so many times! I remember when Pitchfork first posted “Should Have Taken Acid With You,” and I was immediately in LOVE. I feel like he started a lot of what people are calling “chillwave,” and even if he’s been in LA a few times, EVERY time there’s been a conflict for me! Please, please pick me!!!

  5. I’ve always wanted to see Neon Indian and as an avid show-goer, I feel like I can redeem myself by being a lucky soul with tix to this show. The fact that their playing with Prefuse 73 is quite a treat. Oh, and I don’t have a job. Hope to hear some good news for selfish me and I’ll even throw contribute a show review if I am selected. Shabamm!

  6. I feel kind of guilty entering since I won your ratatat tickets giveaway… but I had such an awesome time, and I do love neon indian so much, that I had to give it a shot! I want to see neon indian so bad because Alex’s curly hair is hypnotizing

  7. I really want to see Neon Indian and Prefuse 73. Isn’t that reason enough to give someone tickets? Looks to be a fantastic show at a great venue.

  8. I love love LOVE Neon Indian…even before he had a “live band” plus I’m not 21 and couldn’t go to the standard to see him and on top of that I’m broke college student in need for a break!!!

  9. Hi Travis,
    I missed the Neon Indians when they played last time at the Natural History museum. This will be an amazing show! Thanx.
