TVD Ticket and Vinyl Giveaway: Ezra Furman in the city and venue of your choice and the new LP, Perpetual Motion People

Guitarist and singer Ezra Furman is truly compelling. Most often seen performing in a dress and cherry red lipstick, his energetic, gritty, and brutally honest songs have generated a rapidly growing fanbase. Furman is a true rock ‘n’ roller who puts on thrilling, high-energy performances that shake the house.

Formerly of four piece indie-rock band Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, he is currently backed by The Boyfriends, who feature saxophonist Tim Sandusky, producer of each of Furman’s three solo albums. The first of these, The Year of No Returning, was done without a label, instead using a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording and release.

Now signed with Bella Union, Furman released his third solo album, Perpetual Motion People, earlier this month. Of this album’s concept, Furman said, “I’ve always viewed the idea of truth itself as something wobbly, always slipping out of our grasp. That’s what the songs are about: a head that is haunted, a society I cannot join, a lover who is perpetually in the act of leaving. A central idea is the fugitive or runaway, in a hideout built in the midst of an unfriendly or alienated world.”

Ezra has been successfully promoting his new album in the UK, with his live shows often selling out within hours. The Guardian referred to him as “the most compelling live act you can see right now.” He is now returning to the US for a handful of shows before heading back to Europe.

We have an opportunity for you to win tickets to catch “the most compelling live act right now” in the city and venue of your choice—plus a vinyl copy of Perpetual Motion People.

    Ezra Furman and the Boyfriends should absolutely come perform at hands down one of THE most radical place in northern New Hampshire; Bad Art & Broken Records! We are an art studio, gallery, record store, and antique store located in the historic river district of Littleton, New Hampshire . We’ve had quite a few grace our space and it’s always been a blast! Fortunately enough we’ve got an open schedule this weekend and it appears you’ll be making your way through these relative parts or to swing back through after your journey. Think about it.

    New York-Because there hasn’t been an hour in the last 3 weeks that there hasn’t been an Ezra song in my head and because I will be traveling to New York when this show is happening and am missing him in my hometown of Columbus.

  • Jose M

    DC-Because I’ve told friends to check him out and they became big fans as well!

    I Don’t live in those areas but Ezra is amazing and I believe he should get more credit for his music 🙂
