TVD Ticket Giveaway: Coeur de Pirate at the 9:30 Club, 1/25

Delicate fingers generate beauty by spelling it out on the keys of a piano. Just when you think it can’t get any better, the voice behind Coeur de Pirate starts to come alive. For all the French-speaking impaired out there, Coeur de Pirate translates to “Pirate Heart.” Coeur de Pirate is the stage name behind the Quebec native Beatrice Martin.

It was clear from the start that music would be a major impact on Beatrice Martin’s life. At the tender age of three, she was already musically prepping on the piano. By fifteen, she became a keyboardist for the post-hardcore band December Strikes.

After a few short years, she took the plunge and embarked on creating her own identity as Coeur de Pirate. Beatrice continues to grow as an artist, and late last year she released her newest album Blonde.

Let Coeur de Pirate warm your soul from the cold on Wednesday night (1/25) at the 9:30 Club. Win a pair of tickets to a rare event that few U.S. concert-goes get to have the privilege of experiencing. Hey, if the Mayans are correct, this could be your last chance to see the chanteuse before the world ends in December.

For a chance to win, just tell TVD in the comment box below which song you’d play at the end of the world.

We are calling REM’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine).” Don’t even think about it.

The winner will be chosen on Tuesday (1/24) at noon.

    I may lose some rocker points for this one, but I would want to hear Pachelbel’s Canon in D. It was the song my parents were married to and also the one I was born to, there would be a sort of poetic symmetry to it I think.

    If not that, than without question it would be “Open Your Eyes” – Snow Patrol. The first time I heard that song I felt a comforting calm, it’s so simple, and sometimes that what makes music so deeply moving.

    Gimme Shelter

    You asked this same question once before, I said “Waiting for the End of the World” by Elvis Costello, and you didn’t like that. So let’s see…….

    AHA! “Party at Ground Zero”, by Fishbone (recorded long before the phrase “ground zero” was associated with the WTC site).

  • Tucky

    Providence by Ani DiFranco

  • Todd

    I would choose Que Sera Sera by Doris Day

  • Sundrop3

    My song would be; “London Calling” by the Clash!!

    “The ice age is comin’/The sun zoomn’/Meltdown expected/The wheat is growing thin/Engines stop running but I have no fear/’Cause London is drownin’ and I, I live by the river.” Strummer at his best…
