TVD Ticket Giveaway: Little Dragon at Echostage, 10/15

Swedish band Little Dragon captivates audiences with songs that are as fantastical as the mythical creature in their name. 

The synthpop four-piece comprises Yukumi Nagano, Fredrick Wallin, Håkan Wirenstrand, and Erik Bodin. The quartet formed in 1996 and has released four albums. Their fourth and most recent album, Nabuma Rubberband, was released this past May. Nabuma Rubberband takes on a different approach than its predecessors, having been inspired by “Janet Jackson’s slow jams Yukumi used to listen to walking around Gothenberg during the unrelenting winter,” according to a statement released by the band.

To promote the new album, Little Dragon is playing a handful of dates in America as a part of an international tour. Among these is a stop at D.C.’s Echostage next Wednesday, October 15, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away!

Earlier albums showcase a more experimental side to the Swedish band. On their sound, singer Yukumi Nagano said in an interview with Rolling Stone, “Our sound is wide—it’s not just one particular style—so we dove into different worlds… It feels like there are different moods, and we’re exploring ourselves a little bit.”

Enter to win a pair of tickets to see Little Dragon at Echostage next Wednesday, October 15, by dropping a comment below naming a famous mythical creature. I’m going to say Spyro, the little purple dragon from the video games. 

A winner will be chosen on Tuesday, October 14. Tickets are still available for purchase.
