Ticket Giveaway: Tom Tom Club
I've got a few pairs of tickets to give away for the Tom Tom Club show this Sunday at the Echoplex. Opening the show will be Paul Ryder and members of Fool's Gold will be DJ'ing.
For any of you kids out there, Tom Tom Club is Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz (who were founding members of the Talking Heads). Their classic jam "Genius of Love" was a #1 dance hit back in 1981 and has been sampled by a laundry list of rappers, as well as Mariah Carey. But they weren't one hit wonders. It's still a weirdly, cool album with a lot of early hip-hop influences.
Madchester fans will want to get there early for Paul Ryder (Happy Mondays, etc.).
To win these tickets, email me [dukeufo at gmail] with the name of your favorite Talking Heads jam. The contest closes Friday at 3:00 PM.
