TVD Ticket Giveaway: Kathleen Edwards at
the 9:30 Club, 2/3

Kathleen Edwards’ revealing and inventive album VOYAGEUR was just released January 17th, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for Friday night’s show at 9:30 Club!

I’ve always enjoyed her honest, emotional, and angst-filled songs best, such as “Cheapest Key,” from Asking for Flowers. If you haven’t heard her latest album, VOYAGEUR, produced by Bon Iver front man Justin Vernon (Edwards’ current love interest), it addresses Edwards’ recent romantic transition, ending her marriage with her producer Colin Cripps, and leading into the next exciting chapter.

“I don’t keep a diary, I wrote a record and then I showed it to everybody—sorry Colin, sorry everyone’s going to read about my side of things,” said Edwards in a recent interview.

I’ve never heard Edwards like this before, and I cannot wait to see it live. If you want the chance to see Kathleen Edwards at the 9:30 Club with special guest Hannah Georgas, please comment on this post with an inspiring or upbeat breakup song—nothing sappy, I’m fragile and cry easily.

I’m going with “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” by Paul Simon.

For a chance to win tickets, respond to this post by noon Friday (2/3). The winner must confirm the tickets via email by 3pm for that night’s show.

    Ben Folds – “Song for the Dumped”

  • Reybread

    Kathleen is great! I’ve seen her twice at the Rams Head Annapolis on previous tours. If you enjoy anything from Ryan Adams, Drive By Truckers, Lucero, Reckless Kelly, and/or Son Volt/Jay Farrar, you’ll probably enjoy Kathleen. Hopefully I can snag these free tickets and introduce a friend to her music Friday evening. Check her out!

    I love her new album, and it would be wonderful to see her in concert!

  • kabindc

    I’m very interested in tickets! I’ve been following Kathleen Edwards since her first album Failer and saw her perform at the Birchmere way back then. This is a wonderful new album and departure from her folksy sound to something more ethereal.

  • eyeballz

    I’m all in!! Psyched for the opportunity and thanks in advance.

  • oliviaung

    Guys, we’re asking for a breakup song. We’re not considering comments without a song. Thanks!

  • Sabs

    Oh! Breakup song! The Submarines “brighter discontent.”

    sweet, sad, optimistic, and capturing breakup angst.

  • arcane93

    The Jazz Butcher – “Bad Dream Lover”

  • eyeballz

    Ohhh upbeat….. I would go with FUCK you by Cee Lo, the original NSFW version!

  • BobK41

    Well since youre so fragile and all….its hard to beat Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive!” Plus it so damn, dancey!

  • kabindc

    Break Up song…These boots are made for walkin!!! tickets please! 🙂

  • eyeballz

    ok, empowered and upbeat and a little danceable… Pink’s So What!

  • kabindc

    “The One I Love”…r.e.m. Tickets please! 🙂

  • youstreet

    Dixie Chicks – Goodbye Earl. The song has it all: the breakup, the murder of the ex, and the happily-ever-after ending. “Earl had to die” sung to a banjo. Doesn’t get more upbeat than that.

  • Chris

    The Ramones “Glad to See You Go”. You said “inspiring or upbeat”, and it is not inspiring but it sure is upbeat if you don’t listen to the words. And nobody would ever call it sappy.

  • fooeric

    Adele’s “Someone Like You” because sometimes it takes awhile

  • Cre8vBlade

    “Smile” by Lily Allen. Great upbeat breakup song.

  • Marky

    Fine young cannibals “Funny how love us”

    When at first you left,

    I thought I’d surely die

    I couldn’t see a future

    without you by me side.

    We’re not together,

    But I am still alive.

    I’d rather not see you

    for really long time.
