Ticket Giveaway: The Fruit Bats at Spaceland
The Fruit Bats are one of those bands that still hasn't fully found its audience yet. They're not obscure (they're signed to Sub Pop and frontman Eric Johnson is also in the Shins and Vetiver) but you ask a lot of music lovers and they still don't know much about them. When you see them live, they really connect with their audience; fans sing along and arguments erupt about their best album. So it just feels like they've barely scratched the surface of their potential fanbase...
I've got some tickets to give away for their show this Wednesday at Spaceland. So if you're not going to M.I.A. or Deerhunter or Dungen or The Dead Weather or Cake or Music Go Music do yourself a favor and check these guys out. You won't regret it. Opening the show are Death Vessel and AB & the Sea.
To win these tickets, email me [dukeufo at gmail] with the name of your favorite Fruit Bats' song. Please put your first and last name in the email and "Fruit Bats" in the subject line. The contest closes Wednesday at 2:00 PM.
