TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Feelies at the 9:30 Club, 9/14

No doubt The Feelies are one of the greatest and most influential acts to survive the 1980s. Having inspired acts from the ’80s rebels R.E.M. to ’90s indie pride Pavement, The Feelies have paved the way for some of the best college rock and indie rock artists of all time.

Before their official reunion back in 2008 and the recent Here Before, they released four albums including Crazy Rhythms, which has been voted 49 of the top 100 albums of the 1980s by Rolling Stone and number 49 of the best alternative records of all time by SPIN Magazine. In short, The Feelies are kind of awesome.

The Feelies play the 9:30 Club this Friday, September 14, and we’ve got a pair of tickets for one of you to win!

This is the part where you get really excited.

Long guitar solos in the middle of songs are the best, right? In order to win the tickets to the show, reply in the comments below with your favorite guitar solo in a song.

Mine has got to be from Chuck Berry’s 1958 hit “Johnny B. Goode.” Whether it’s Chuck performing it or Marty McFly putting his spin on it, it’s a winner every time.

The winner will be chosen Friday (9/14) at noon.

    The guitar solo from Paranoid Android when Jonny Greenwood just tears it up.

  • Rick Taylor

    How about Mick Ronson’s guitar solo in “Moonage Daydream” — blistering!

  • Jonathan Wolfe

    The late, great Eddie Hazel on Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain.”

  • Matt

    “Cinnamon Girl” – Neil Young.

  • Matthew

    The Melvins’ “Revolve”

  • Heather

    Any solo from Neil Young’s “Down By The River.” Written in a fever dream, menacing and laid-back at the same time.

  • Mike

    Red Hot chili peppers – especially in michigan. The solo in the end of the song is just mind blowing!!!

    Green grass and high tides

    Inspired question, as everyone knows that every Feelies song has a guitar solo! Since I just discovered this, let’s go with Prince playing the While My Guitar Gently Weeps solo at one of those R&R HOF inductions…look it up.

  • Elliott Negin

    Hard to say. Duane Allman on Derek and the Dominoes’ “Layla.” The intro guitar solo to “Sweet Jane” by Steve Hunter on Lou Reed’s live album “Rock ‘n Roll Animal.” Another great solo: Johnny Winter’s live version of the Rolling Stone’s “Jumping Jack Flash” on his album “Live Johnny Winter And.”
