TVD Ticket Giveaway: Nada Surf at the 9:30 Club, 12/11

Nada Surf, American alternative rock band known for their 1995 breakout hit “Popular,” released their seventh studio album in January. On tour for their latest record The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy, the band is making a stop at 9:30 Club on Tuesday December 11, and we’ve got tickets to giveaway.

A Brooklyn band before the hipster scene of neighborhoods like Williamsburg became prominent, Nada Surf departs from the softer, passionate sound of their previous records. This latest album is more cheery and upbeat, giving it a reminiscent feeling of old ‘90s college radio of the likes of R.E.M and the Counting Crows.

“Through all their stages, frontman Matthew Caws’ gift for melody has remained firmly intact, allowing the band to churn out solid record after solid record. For a rock outfit often seen as a one-hit wonder, Nada Surf’s discography is nearly flawless,” reports Consequence of Sound in the review of The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy.

For a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Nada Surf, submit a comment below telling us your anthem song of the ’90s. Mine would have to be “Semi-Charmed Life” by Third Eye Blind.

The winner will be chosen at noon on Monday, December 10. Tickets are still available for purchase.

    An anthem for the ’90’s?  “Buddy Holly”, off Weezer’s blue album.  Talk about a songwriter who has a “gift for melody”…
    (“Buddy Holly” edged out “Surf Wax America” mostly due to its ubiquity, though the latter, from the same album, would be a close second because, well, it’s about surfing, and you do that eternally in the summer if you can.)
