1. Budos Band – the Head Honchos of Horn – have carved out their proper place on the roster of the excellent soul revivalist label, Daptone Records. Known for playing shows more often than they rest, their show Thursday night at the Independent is going to be one of the tightest, funkiest sets of the festival, and we’re giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner.
2. Atlas Sound houses the musical spillings-out of Brandon Cox which don’t find their way into Cox’s more well-known project, Deerhunter. Fans of either project tend to dig the other, but Atlas Sound is responsible for exploring murkier, more far-out territories. We’ve got two tickets to his sold-out show at Bimbo’s 365 Club on Saturday.
Simply download the app and open up the Exclusives pane to enter either (both??) contests.
And if you’re crestfallen that your last shot Sleigh Bells tickets slipped through your hands, dry those eyes: the last last tickets to that show will be sold through our app tomorrow morning. But stay nimble, because there is no such thing in our world as a last last last chance.
For the first word on our daily exclusives, you really should holler at our Noise Pop hub – it’s the very first place we go to announce our new deals and contests on the daily.
And now we return to your regularly scheduled blogramming.
