TVD Ticket Giveaway: The National with
Yo La Tengo and
Wye Oak at MPP, 9/6

Headed to the beach for one last weekend of R&R on Friday? Why not give your mini vacation the encore it deserves by treating yourself to the ever-enjoyable indie rock tunes of The National as they take the stage at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Tuesday, September 6th. Better yet, if you are not one of the fortunate to get away this weekend, let TVD hook you up with a mellow night of music by entering to win a pair of lawn tickets to the show!

The National, an Ohio indie rock band now based in Brooklyn, NY, are known for their calm, warm, but melancholy tunes. (See album titled Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers.) Fear not, the band’s latest release High Violet is actually a less depressive album, and is sure to please audiences as they sway in the breeze at Merriweather.

Also performing will be Yo La Tengo, a band from Hoboken (no jokin’…) that infuses various influences to reintroduce the word independent back into the genre of indie music.

Fans will definitely also want to arrive early to catch Wye Oak, an indie rock duo based out of nearby Baltimore.

So come out to Merriweather on Tuesday and enjoy a night of easy listening, smooth rockin’ indie tunes as we bid farewell to the summer season.

For your chance to win two tickets to see The National, give us a sad song for a dirty lover in the comments below. We are going to go with Bon Iver’s entire album For Emma, Forever Ago. That is some angst, man.

One winner will be chosen at noon on Thursday (9/1)! Good luck!

    Lover I Don’t Have To Love-Bright Eyes

  • Jeff Stambaugh

    ‘Lua’ from Bright Eyes, maybe nothing sadder or dirtier than loving an addict and being one too? I’ve been listening to this one this week cause I’m seeing him Sunday at the 9:30.
