Win Tix to Islands at the El Rey, June 17!

islands.jpgEDIT: 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.
