TVD Ticket Giveaway: VNV Nation at the 9:30 Club, 12/6

There is no doubt that people like a song with a catchy tune and a sing-along chorus, but almost just as often they need something to let loose and move to, something rhythmic and pulsating, that they can feel without thinking about it. (Granted, the music doesn’t always do all the work. There are often other, ahem, substances involved.)

But whether substances are involved are not, VNV Nation has been making excellently eurythmic dance beats for over fifteen years. Early albums of theirs were known to be on the harsh and intense side of electronica, but since their 1999 breakout release Empires, their sampling and synthesizing has been of a higher quality and better danceability.

Of course, listening to electronica is one thing, but experiencing it live is a whole other animal. If you are in the mood to feel the pulsation for yourself, enter to win a pair of tickets to VNV Nation’s performance at the 9:30 Club this Tuesday by telling us in the comments below what song is guaranteed to get you movin’ and groovin’ on the dance floor every time–electronica or otherwise!

Enter to win by 9 am on Tuesday. The chosen winner must respond via email by noon.

    Having been a DJ on & off for 20 years (or so), VNV will be found at the top of my play lists. Their track Epicentre (from Futureperfect) immediately comes to mind. Many of their remixes for other bands/artists bring the the best out of the track while adding their own tweaks – their remix of Kathy’s Song by Apoptygma Berzerk is a good representation of this. I would venture to guess many folks would list ‘Chrome’ as one that is guaranteed to get you movin’ and groovin’ – and I would also agree, and would want to list it as well, but there are so many other tracks of theirs to list: Perpetual, Sentinel, Tomorrow Never Comes, In Defiance.Overall, some great music from a great band – looking forward to the opportunity to see them live.

    Wow, only one comment so far? Electronica has always been a genre of music that has had a hard time finding an outlet to it’s fans. Before the internet really took off it was always a challenge to find and discover new electronic music. More often than not it was by pestering some poor DJ like the other commenter to ask them what song it was they were playing at a club. It’s also a genre that came more out of Europe than the U.S. so you had to spend a lot of time combing through the imports section of your local record shop. Remember records? Anyway, I’m really looking forward to seeing VNV Nation at a great club like the 930 Club, the only thing that would make it better would be if I had a pair of free tickets so I could bring a friend and introduce them to one of my favorite electronic bands!
