What do the new kids in school do to make friends: throw a party. As the new kids on the block in LA that’s exactly what we plan to do. We’ve got the ballons, the app, and the contests. (You certainly can’t say we’re not down to get down.) We also have a little secret. Some of you may remember that when we launched in San Francisco we gave away tickets to an intimate Flaming Lips performance at Bimbo’s on three consecutive days. We didn’t even announce it, before giving it away to fans as a thanks for blindly signing up. So for your early adopters, here’s our way of saying thanks: “We’re giving away a pair of tickets to Neon Indian’s sold out show tonight at the Echoplex. Get ready to bathe in Neon Indian‘s synthetic nostalgia and floating rock melodies.” Enjoy the warm glow of the group’s latest album, Era Extraña, which has received rave reviews from Pitchfork, and NME. Also, make sure to like the group’s Facebook page and follow them on Twitter for updates on their current tour. We’re getting excited. You could say this is of our second homecoming of sort, so consider yourself our date and get ready as the nightweek unfolds. To enter, just download our app, select Los Angeles as your city, find the offer, and submit. That’s it. We’ll announce and email a randomly selected winner at 5pm PST today.

Oh–and make sure to stay tuned throughout the week. Trust me. (Hell, it’s too hard to keep a secret so here’s a hint: we’re offering fans an opportunity to meet & greet Nico Vega at their performance at The Roxy on Thursday.) For those of you without an iPhone, please like our Facebook page , tell us why you should go and we’ll add your name to our total list! Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience!  Warm up listening to  Neon Indian’s “Polish Girl.”
