TVD Ticket Giveaway: Fiona Apple and Blake Mills at the Lincoln Theatre, 10/25

It’s been a week since Fiona Apple released her Paul Thomas Anderson-directed music video for “Hot Knife.” Sadly, the video isn’t a new single off an upcoming album, but a reminder of her 2012 release The Idler Wheel… Here’s to hoping!

Just when we thought she would fade back into the woodwork of the “mysterious artist” facade, she announced a fall tour with Californian singer-songwriter Blake Mills, aptly titled “Anything We Want: An Evening with Fiona Apple & Blake Mills.”

“We know it’ll be something special, and we aren’t being coy here,” Apple and Mills said in a statement to Consequence of Sound. “It’s just that we have about 26 percent of an idea of what the fuck we will be playing for you.”

Fiona Apple is making her way to the Lincoln Theatre on Friday, October 25, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give you! Although you can’t see Paul Thomas Anderson with her, seeing Fiona crooning her sultry voice in person is a spectacle to behold, especially in a venue that seems to have been made for her by a divine right. As if that weren’t enough, we’re giving away these tickets before they even go on sale!

If you want to win a pair of tickets to see Fiona Apple at the Lincoln Theatre, then link us in the comments below, your favorite music video.

Does “Trapped In The Closet” count? I would feel bad if I didn’t use that answer.

The winner will be chosen at 9:00 AM tomorrow, Friday, August 2, so get your entry in soon. Tickets go on sale later that morning at 10:00 AM.

    Favourite video overall? or of Fiona Apple? I still love Jamiroquai’s Virtual Insanity… whatever happened to him by the way? 😉

    Beastie Boys “”! Would love to win this contest, been a fan sense the first record and sad to say I have never seen her live. How awesome would this be in the new Lincoln Theatre!!

    Best Music Video? 
    Well, Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up” video is pretty impressive, especially the end:
    For pure cuteness, the Blur “Coffee and TV” video with the dancing milk carton is great:

    AC/DC – It’s A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock N’ Roll.  Nothing will ever top this gem.

  • TomPape

    Got to be Die Antwoord “Fatty Boom Boom”. Genius.

    Always and forever.

    First of all, I love music videos, so it was hard to pick just one. I’m a huge Ben Howard fan, so I went with one of his. I love the lighting, the colors, the landscape, and the cinematography of this video. The song is amazing. Watching this video makes me want to go outside and explore this incredibly beautiful world we live in. The video makes nature look gorgeous. Ben Howard, Old Pine:

    Default, Django Django.  Visually great, musically better than when they did it live at the 9:30.

    There are so many great videos (Just, Closer, Hurt, etc)  but I always enjoyed Buddy Holly over the rest 🙂

    Love this new one by Arctic Monkeys:

    other than the obvious classics (thriller, trapped in the closet, old-school britney/nsync/backstreet boys/spice girls), i’d say bright eyes’ “bowl of oranges” gets my vote for cuteness and originality (and not featuring the actual artist in the video… which gets redundant and narcissistic after a while)

    Jeff Buckley’s “So Real” because it’s really crazy and dream-like

    Hi! My favorite music video is David Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes. This is a really cool music video and I think it was definitely groundbreaking in its aesthetics and social commentary. It really reminds me of that scene in “Contact” when she’s on the beach with the alien. It is kind of dated, but it definitely resounds and stands the test of time. Here it is:

    Ah, glam rock. You’re best days are behind you, but your legacy remains. After all, Fiona Apple’s career took off post-writhing around in her skivvies for the “Criminal” video, right? Is it safe to call this her artistic inspiration?

  • CSmith

    This is he first music video that I can remember seeing and falling in love with. I have no idea what makes it special but damn if I don’t live a Slash guitar solo.
