Everything about Gossip screams glamour, from their dance-punk beats to powerhouse frontwoman, Beth Ditto.
Three years ago, Gossip’s Rick Rubin-produced breakthrough album Music for Men broke through in a major way, catapulting the trio from Olympia, Washington to phenom status both in the US and overseas.
Gossip’s fifth album, A Joyful Noise sees the band poised for a serious return with a newly released video for their latest single “Move in the Right Direction.” A Joyful Noise revolves around Ditto’s heart-stopping vocals and further develops Gossip’s sleeker, disco-referencing sound they’ve been moving toward on previous releases. Considering Gossip’s grittier beginnings as opening acts for Sleater-Kinney and the White Stripes, the aggressive pop of A Joyful Noise shows Gossip taking a step away from the blues and post-punk that influenced their earlier recordings toward shiny electronica.
To celebrate Gossip’s return, we have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner to their 9:30 Club show this Monday, September 24th.
For a chance to win the tickets, tell us your version of the best “joyful noise.”
Puppies welcoming you home? Fans clapping for an encore? You get the idea.
The winner will be chosen at noon on Friday, September 21st.
