TVD LAST MINUTE Ticket Giveway: Dirty Beaches at Black Cat, TONIGHT!

Do you have plans tonight? Well, now you do. Taiwanese-born Canadian Alex Zhang Hungtai, better known as Dirty Beaches, will be hitting up Black Cat Backstage, and we have a chance for you to win a pair of tickets. Happy Monday!

Recently filed under “Best New Music” by Pitchfork, Dirty Beaches’ “Sweet 17” from his recent album Badlands via Zoo Music is “chillwave-ugly in name and greaser-gorgeous in execution… In this moment of relentless, unchecked nostalgia, the 1950s have remained a curiously under-romanticized era, with a torrent of mystery and unmined cool ready to be pillaged… Brace yourself for the pomade revolution.”

To win the pair of tickets, simply tell us your favorite retro track. I’m going to go with my drunk karaoke staple The Foundations’ “Build Me Up Buttercup.”

Nostalgia, baby. We gots it.

The winner will be chosen at 5pm TODAY and must be able to confirm by 7pm, so stay on top of your email!
