TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Grieves’ Together Apart

Lately, it has been hard to remember that it is in fact winter in Colorado. Jackets are light, and the snow has been lighter, and this January has turned your favorite slope into the world’s longest water slide. While the elusive snow may inhibit some crucial downtime on the slopes, it definitely will make for a more pleasant outdoor experience at Icelantic’s Winter on the Rocks.

This is the first winter concert in Red Rocks’ history, featuring Grieves & Budo, Atmosphere, and Common, this Friday, January 27th, at Red Rocks Ampitheater, so at least for this week, I am rooting for the warm weather.

Wrap up warm, and Grieves’ chill beats will help defrost your dancing shoes. Colorado native Benjamin Laub (aka Grieves) is a lyrical talent to watch; his music is derived from real pain and experience that bring the words and the emotion to life. He paired up with Budo in 2008, and they have been supplying a steady dose of hypnotic flow with multi-instrumental rhythms and intensified lyrical narratives. The duo is joining the likes of T-Pain and Gym Class Heros for the 2012 SnowStorm Music Tour starting in February, but you have the chance to see them first at Red Rocks.

Along for the ride is the Minnesota hip hop group Atmosphere, who is continuing to sell out shows across the world after the release of their highly successful, and 7th studio album, The Family Sign in 2011. American hip hop and music icon Common will also be freezing his rocks off this Friday promoting his latest album The Dreamer/The Believer, which is in stores now.

Enjoy the weather, enjoy the show, but most importantly take advantage of our latest vinyl giveaway to enjoy the latest release from Grieves. To win a copy of Grieves’ Together Apart, name in the comment box below a song that best describes Colorado’s recent menopausal hot flash.

We are going to go ahead and call Billy Idol’s “Hot in the City.”

The winner will be chosen in one week, on Tuesday, January 31st, and must have a mailing address in North America.
