TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Temper Trap
at the Fillmore Silver Spring, 10/13

Australian quintent The Temper Trap secured a spot in the indie rock scene with the release of their 2008 song “Sweet Disposition.” 

The lead single from their 2009 debut album, Conditions, not only landed on the charts in the UK, Ireland, and Japan, but it would also go on to be used in a variety of commercials, TVs, and movies, including the hit (500) Days of Summer and a commercial for Diet Coke.

Since then, the group has gone on to record and release their eponymous sophomore album on Liberation Records. Of the new album, lead singer Dougy Mandagi has said, “I want this album to be bigger, and I want the record to do well, I don’t want just one or two songs to do well, I want people to realize we’re capable of making records.”

The Temper Trap will kick off an American tour in support of their new material on Friday, playing at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC before stopping at the Fillmore Silver Spring this Saturday, October 13th.

Want to see The Temper Trap when they stop in the area this weekend? We want to help you out. For your chance to win, comment below and tell us your favorite song in a commercial.

I’m going to go with Röyksopp’s “Remind Me” from the Geico Caveman commercial.

A winner will be chosen at noon on Thursday, October 11th.

Our warm thanks to Ken Leanfore for sharing his Temper Trap photo.

    Buffalo Tom’s “Sodajerk,” was featured in commercials for both Nike andPontiac, and it’s easy to see why–an incredibly infectios hook and melody.  If the driving opening beat doesn’t make you “Just Do It” or feel “Driving Excitement,” then I don’t know what will..
