Madison Concert Ticket Giveaway: Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids

“On Mine Is Yours, everything is bigger. King’s reverb-tinged production puts the focus on the band’s surprisingly tender melodies and slow-burn rock arrangements; the result is 11 melodic, economical tracks that deliver huge hooks without sacrificing instrumental dexterity.” —The Phoenix

You would have had to be living under a rock for the last few years to not catch wind of the buzz being created by this California-based foursome.  From the sharp tightness of earlier hits like Hospital Beds and Hang Me Up To Dry to the slightly more expansive tunes on their most recent release, Mine Is Yours, Cold War Kids have definitely made their mark on the indie music scene.

If you’re into bands like Tapes ‘N Tapes, White Rabbits, Delta Spirit, Local Natives and Ra Ra Riot, then you need to be at The Majestic next Tuesday, November 1 to see Cold War Kids live in concert.

Read on to find out how you could win a pair of tickets right here on the blog, and stay tuned to our Facebook Page and Twitter for even more chances to win!

Saturday’s Double Feature: Yo La Tengo and The Hood Internet (1.23.10)

Yo La TengoThe Hood Internet

You may have noticed that Madison is hosting a pair of outrageously cool bands this Saturday.  Indie gods Yo La Tengo will rock the Barrymore, while The Hood Internet will mix things up at the High Noon Saloon later that evening.

If you’re having as hard of a time choosing which show is more worthy of your attendance as we are, consider this:  those 18 or over arriving at the High Noon Saloon on Saturday night with their Yo La Tengo ticket stub in-hand will receive half off their Hood Internet tickets!  Yup, originally $10, Hood Internet tickets will be discounted to only $5 for those hardcore music fans who refuse to miss out on great live music.

Get tickets to Yo La Tengo here.  Just planning on hitting The Hood Internet show?  Those tickets are available here.

See you at the shows!

Best Buy = Indie Fail

Indie Music Greed

I don’t often use the blog to rant about the injustices in the music world, but this piece of news struck me as completely ludicrous:

Recent visitors to the official Best Buy site may have noticed a link targeted to unsigned artists, informing them that they have an opportunity to have their album stocked by local stores, if they’re willing to pay–-ahem$250 to get things rolling.
