Win Tickets to Caribou, Class Actress and Teengirl Fantasy at Glasslands on July 16!

Hey, here's a question for you. What are you doing on Friday, July 16...and your answer better be "I'm going to the Caribou, Class Actress, Teengirl Fantasy, Diamond Rings and Idiot Glee show at Glasslands". And if that's not your first spew-out, then let me help you change that by dishing out 2 tickets to the event. Electro-dance-party-fun and GO!



Here's the rub: Friday, July 16 will see the aforementioned acts strut their stuff on the Glasslands stage for the monthly PopGun Party (please note: Caribou is a DJ set). Doors are at 8:30pm and tickets are only $10 if you RSVP here.


Or you can enter to win 2 tickets...making you and your pal's wallets a little less light. Which in turn, saves you a few bones to buy me a beer to say thanks, right? Here's how to enter...


Simply copy, paste and send me the below message via twitter and you're entered. I'm dishing out one pair of tickets so get tweeting! Contest will remain open until 5pm Thursday, July 15, so you have a week to hit me with those tweets! 


yo @sheenabeaston make my gun go pop by handing me the tickets to see @caribouband, @classactress and more @theglasslands on july 16!


(hint: you have to be following me on the birdaliciously rad social app, so I can Direct Message winner with all the pertinent info)

Win Tickets to TILT's Summer Concert Series with Class Actress, Neon Indian, CFCF and more!

So often, I treat all my NYC readers to all the goods when it comes to free tickets. Hey, sometimes it's easier to get a manhandlin' on the details when you're based in the same city as the event takes place. That said, we fly 'cross the country this afternoon to hit up our beloved Cali-beasts...particularly those of the "city of angels" variety. Free stuff starts now!



In association with Binary and Blowup LA, TILT Magazine is hosting the first of their official summer concert series. June 4 is the date and The Echoplex is the space. So who's all on the bill?


Class ActressNeon Indian, the Los Angeles debut of CFCFLexiconDon, and resident DJ's Short Circuit (Binary) and B.R. round out this night of radness. Live Art by Demonbabies and a photobooth by Young and Sleek cap off the festivities. The event is 18+ and is all of $10 if you're smart to go the pre-sale route.


Don't have the dough to flow? I'm giving away a pair of tickets and you can win 'em, if you're an LA kiddo.


Want to win the tickets to this sweet gig? If you've frequented the contests here before, then you'll know we are cerifiably "twitter-crazy". So start by following us if you aren't already...winners get notified by DM, and the only way we can send you a beastly congratulatory message is if you're on board our tweetable train.


Next, simply copy and paste the below message and hit send in whatever tweeterrific application you use (we're partial to TweetDeck ourselves...)


yo @sheenabeaston, gimme dem tix to the TILT summer concert event!


That's all you gotta do...easy peasy. Contest will remain open until 5pm on Wednesday, June 2, so I'm giving you one week to hit me with your tweets. Go!

Class Actress Played the Studio at Webster Hall

Last night, Brooklyn duo, Class Actress, jumped into the East Village with a tight set of their best tunes. Sharing a bill supported by Your Vegas and Keepaway, along with NME Radio DJ James Theaker, the local act showcased their talents and left me a bigger fan after finally having caught their live performance.



Class Actress is, essentially, the embodiment of Elizabeth Harper: quirky and enigmatic with a splash of subdued showmanship that make her songs both easily accessible and equally digestible. Running through a number of songs you can find on her debut EP, Journal of Ardency, Harper and her accompanying keyer/guitarist gave a simple yet effective set of pop and new wave tunes.


You can buy Class Actress' EP here, or catch them live tonight at Bowery Ballroom, when they open for VV Brown. You can still grab a ticket here.


More pics here, and yes this is a short review, because I'll be at their show tonight as well. So hooray for more words tomorrow!
