We’ve been on a concert tear lately at Blogging LA with our ticket contests to see Jane Lynch, Blondie — and now Peter, Bjorn & John. They are, of course, known for that whistling song, but they’ve done so much more that is just as great. The band is on their “All You Can Eat” tour now, and we have tickets to give away for their October 5th show at the El Rey. To enter, simply leave a comment with your favorite Peter Bjorn & John song other than “Young Folks“ and I’ll pick a winner by Friday at noon.
Yup, this one’s for SUPERCHUNK, VASELINES, and TELEKINISIS.
The show is at the Music Box on Tuesday, October 19th.
What, you wonder, do YOU have to do to score two free tickets?
The first person to comment with a sentence (in English) using all the letters of the alphabet wins.
The shorter the better – Oh and “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog” is out.
EDIT: The venue for this show has been changed to the El Rey from the Fonda, in case any of you bought tix to the original Fonda show. Also the openers have changed: Mr. Grainger couldn’t make it, but AWOL will be in his place.)
It’s impossible to not dig the hummable tunes from Islands, tweaked with poppy melodies and calypso tones, country twangs and hip-hop grooves (prolly drawn on from their time working with Busdriver). The former Unicorns dudes have decamped their late band (can unicorns ever last? we didn’t think so) but formed something fabulous in its stead.
We’ve got tic-tic-tickets to give away! Just answer below, in the comments, this question (be sure to put your contact email in there!!!):
If you could go to any island on the planet, which would it be and why?
Winners get a pair of tix courtesy of Goldenvoice, whom we clearly & obviously are gay for.
