TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Lumineers at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 7/26

The last time we gave away tickets to The Lumineers a few weeks ago, we had 200 entries but only 1 winner. Good thing they’ve just announced a date at MPP, so that we can give you all one more shot to win.—Ed.

From emerging into mainstream radio to getting nominated for two Grammy awards, it’s safe to say that 2012 was the year for The Lumineers. 2013 looks just as promising for the folk band. With a sold-out tour, the band has started the new year right. 

The Lumineers were founded in 2005 by front man Wesley Schultz and drummer Jeremiah Fraites. Grief-stricken by the loss of close friend and brother Joshua Fraites, the band served as a way of coping. With a move to Denver and the addition of cellist Neyla Pekarek, The Lumineers gained a following, and so much more, with their hit single, “Ho Hey.”

On July 26, the band will be playing at Merriweather Post Pavilion… and we’re giving away a pair of lawn tickets before they even go on sale!

Following the success of their single “Ho Hey,” the band released their debut self-titled full-length on April 3, 2012, which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200.

“Born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work, The Lumineers have found their sound when the world needs it most.”

There isn’t a music listener today who doesn’t know the chorus of The Lumineers’ song, “Ho Hey.” It’s just that catchy. To win your tickets to see the band this summer, July 26, at Merriweather Post Pavilion, leave a comment below naming a song AND its lyrics that are infectiously catchy. Currently, I can’t get the chorus of “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore out of my head:

I’m gonna pop some tags
I only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I-I-I’m hunting
Lookin’ for a come up
This is freakin’ awesome

The winner will be chosen on Friday, February 1, at 9am. If you don’t win them from us, be sure to pick up your tickets when they do go on sale this Friday, February 1, at 10am.

Bon Jovi, "Livin' On a Prayer".... now I'm going to have it stuck in my head all day! At least it's a fantastic song!

She says we've got to hold on to what we've got
Cause it doesn't make a difference
If we make it or not
We've got each other and that's a lot
For love - well give it a shot

Whooah, we're half way there
Whooah, Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Whooah, Livin on a prayer

I also have to mention Seven Nation Army by White Stripes because with my home team Baltimore Ravens in the Super Bowl, Ravens fans can't help but saying over and over again, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!!

Stuck on alt-j's beautiful "Interlude 1" especially the last lines:

"Never leave it too late, always enjoy the taste of the great gray world of hearts.
As all dogs everywhere bark, It´s worth knowing
Like all good fruit the balance of life is in the ripe and ruin."

Carly Rae Jepsen unfortunately - i can never NOT sing along to "Here's my number, so call me maybe"...it's everywhere!

The Gaslight Anthem's "45" has a chorus that definitely can be labeled a lyrical contagion, but in the best way:

"Hey hey, turn the record over.

Hey hey, and I'll see you on the flip side. 

There you go, turn the key and engine over. 
Let her go, let somebody else lay at her feet."

In honor of the super bowl this weekend, and the epic Destiny's Child reunion half time show:

I am going to take us back to 1999 with 'Bills, Bills, Bills'

can 
you pay my bills 
can you pay my telephone bills
can you pay my automo'bills
then maybe we can chill
I don't think you do
so you and me are through

The Avett Brothers I and Love and You is definately one of my favorites and a real crowd pleaser.  Just can't get it out of my head whenever i hear it.
