TVD Ticket Giveaway: Goblin at the 9:30 Club, 12/13 (early show)

Known for their work in soundtracks and having more lineup changes than one can count on two hands, Italian progressive rockers Goblin are finally bringing their live show to North America for the first time ever. It just happens to include a stop at the 9:30 Club this week.

Often compared to the likes of other progressive music giants such as Genesis or King Crimson, Goblin rose to fame through frequent collaboration with Italian horror filmmaker Dario Argento. They contributed many recordings to his films, while struggling to keep a consistent lineup and remain credible. Having had on-and-off reunions since 2000, a latest incarnation in the band is ready to venture into North America after forty years of playing.

This tour will see the band perform all of their classics, including selections from the scores of Deep Red, Suspiria, Tenebrae, Roller, and more. Other famous scores that have never been played live before will be dug out from the vault to treat audiences on every North American date.

Goblin will be taking the stage at 9:30 Club on December 13, and we have a pair of tickets to send you on your way to take in this progressive rock spectacle.

To enter for a chance win, leave a comment detailing your favorite prog-rock act. Mine would have to be Rush—my deep Canadian roots have instilled me with an undying love for the power trio, who still continue to amaze audiences around the globe to this very day.

A winner will be chosen at noon on Wednesday, December 11. Tickets are still available.

Todd Rundgren's Utopia (or just "Utopia" on later LPs) is my favorite prog-rock act.  Often overlooked, they were highly influential and were simply great!  Their original keyboardist, Mark "Moogy" Klingman, had the best nick-name for a keyboardist ever & their first album was 4 songs over 60 minutes--what's more prog-rock than that?  Nothing against Rush, Yes, or other more famous prog-rock acts, but Utopia is the best!

Please select me for the free Goblin tickets.  Dawn of the Dead is one of my favorite films and I missed their last Rock'N'Roll Hotel show, which I heard was amazing.  Would hate to miss this on as well!


Gotta be Yes.  I grew up on them, though the absence of Jon Anderson makes me wince.
