TVD 24 Hour Ticket Giveaway: CHAPPO at Rock and Roll Hotel, 5/31

Psychedelic-pop-electric-space-rock group CHAPPO is currently touring in support of their first full-length LP, Moonwater. The quartet will be stopping at the Rock & Roll Hotel tomorrow, May 31st, and we want to send you and a friend to the show!

The album was recorded in Vermont and produced by the band’s drummer/vocalist Zac Colwell.  Colwell notes that the album is a slight departure from the group’s previous releases, saying, “We wanted to capture a certain energy and vibe, stripping down the gear, going really minimal to focus on the performance and obtain that freedom in the sound.”

While it has a more stripped down sound, Moonwater is still full of catchy, upbeat songs that will be sure to translate well into live performances.  The Brooklyn-based band is notorious for raising the bar during their concerts, which usually feature feather headdresses and copious amounts of glitter and confetti.

The band’s infectious pop tunes have some describing them as “The Rolling Stones meets Beck in outer space, The Flaming Lips minus gravity.”  To be honest, I don’t know for sure what this means, but I do know that it sounds awesome.

To win a pair of tickets to see CHAPPO when they stop in DC, comment below and tell us another band that puts on a memorable live show.

I’m going to go with of Montreal, who always play crazy, borderline insane concerts.

The winner will be chosen at noon tomorrow, May 31st, and must confirm the tickets by 3pm for that night’s show.
