TVD Ticket Giveaway: Animal Collective at Merriweather Post Pavillion, 7/9

TVD is offering a little free therapy. Our recommendation? Experimental hypnosis; allowing yourself to fall under the spell of Animal Collective. They will be performing at Merriweather Post Pavillion, along with Black Dice and Deradoorian, next weekend, Saturday, July 9th. It is the perfect remedy to remind everyone that summer is all about fun, and we are giving away a pair of lawn tickets to the show.

You have to respect four best friends from Baltimore that love to have a good time, and make a living off of it. Animal Collective is everything their name suggests: partiers with the freedom and power to pretty much do whatever they want, which definitely shows in their music with their unique, exploratory sound.

Therefore, it only makes sense that the uncompromising Black Dice would be one of the openers to give the audience a taste of their very own brand of bizarre.

Angel Deradoorian, the multi-instrumentalist and vocalist of Dirty Projectors, will be gracing the stage as well, dosing the audience with some indie sizzle.

So let your hair down, sway to the music, and get a little wild. With your girl.

I don’t mean
To seem like I care about material things,
Like our social status,
I just want
Four walls and adobe slabs
For my girls.

For a chance to win your pair of tickets, just tell us, in the comment box below, your favorite song about a girl(s). I am going to have to call the obvious, Mötley Crüe’s “Girls, Girls, Girls” and the less obvious, (RIP) MJ’s “Billie Jean.”

Deadline to enter is Friday (7/1), at noon.

    Nothings like finding the one for you, especially when she’s as much of a transforming beast as you are.

    That or Spice Girls’ Wannabe……

    I’d have to go with No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” – classic 90s jam!

    I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder how this song could be so good that I chose it over Tom Waits’ “Martha” or “Alice,” but it just is. That piano! The violin!

    Being a browneyed girl myself, I’ll have to go with Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” 🙂

    I’m inclined to go with “Melanie” by Weird Al. I appreciate the protagonist’s level of devotion. “I knew that she could be the girl for me and to think I probably never would have found her if I hadn’t bought that telescope.”
