TVD Ticket Giveaway: Crystal Castles at the 9:30 Club, 9/30

After spending time in the studio this spring, Ethan Kath and Alice Glass, better known by their moniker Crystal Castles, announced the tentative November release of their third album earlier this month.  To help spread the word about their forthcoming release, Crystal Castles is kicking off a North American tour on the 27th, performing in Charlotte.    

Following their Charlotte gig, Crystal Castles will be DC-bound to play two headlining shows at the 9:30 Club on Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th.  While the first show has sold out and tickets to the second show are bound to be gone soon, we here have two tickets to Crystal Castles’ latter 9:30 Club  show that are ready to be put in the hands of one TVD reader.

Touring with Crystal Castles will be Los Angeles-based noise rock group HEALTH, with whom Crystal Castles collaborated with on “Crimewave,” a song from their self-titled album that charted at #9 on the U.K. indie singles chart.

Want to see Crystal Castles and HEALTH this weekend?  For your chance to win a pair of tickets to their September 30th show, comment below and tell us your favorite collaboration between two artists

I’m going to go with “Under Pressure” by David Bowie and Queen.

A winner will be chosen at noon on Thursday, September 27th.

    My favorite collaboration is actually Crystal Castles featuring Robert Smith of “Not in Love” – its super addictive to listen to and the best jamming out in your car with the music blaring with the windows down kind of song!

  • CassieSheets

    Definitely Roslyn by Bon Iver and St. Vincent, both of them are so good on their own and together it is spectacular.

  • MikeLanahan

    Awww, man! “Under Pressure” would’ve been my first choice! Since that one has been spoken for, I will go with “Handle With Care” by George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne & Roy Orbison performing together as The Traveling Wilburys. What an amazing song!
