TVD Ticket and Signed Artwork Giveaway: Manchester Orchestra at 9:30 Club, 11/14

While many songs will strike an emotional cord with a listener, it is rare to come across an entire album that does the same both lyrically and instrumentally. Andy Hull and his band, Manchester Orchestra, have done just that, depicting a journey of emotional vulnerability via ten tracks on their latest release, Simple Math.

“It’s the reaction to my marital, physical, and mental failures. But for the first time, I’m not blaming anyone but myself,” Hull says.

While this record may be considered a “concept” by definition, the raw passion and honest lyrics can also be found on the band’s two previous albums, I’m Like a Virgin Losing a Child and Mean Everything to Nothing. Manchester Orchestra’s ability to drive emotion deep into a listener’s core both vocally and instrumentally truly sets them apart in the indie-rock scene.

Manchester Orchestra will be telling their poignant story at venues across North America joined by The Dear Hunter and White Denim.

We are not only giving away a pair of tickets to their show at the 9:30 Club on Monday, but we also have signed artwork designed by the band!

For a chance to win, give us the name of a song that best describes you today.

For me, at the moment, it’s “Losing My Edge” by LCD Soundsytem. How about you?

The winner will be chosen on Monday (11/14) at 9am and must confirm the tickets via email by 3pm for that day’s show.
