TVD Ticket Giveaway: DJ Shadow at Fillmore Silver Spring, 3/27

Mondays suck, but that doesn’t mean they have to drag down the rest of the week with them. Tuesdays are known to be a little bit better, and can help you to cope through the work week. We just made them even better.

We are giving away a pair of tickets to see DJ Shadow perform at the Fillmore Silver Spring this Tuesday, March 27th. So you can wake up with a smile Monday knowing that Tuesday night is going to be filthy fun.

DJ Shadow (aka Josh Davis) has been cranking out unbelievable records since 1991, and his talent has been unquestioned after the insane success of 1996’s Entroducing. Often described as an experimental hip hop trailblazer, DJ Shadow’s tracks show an unrivaled talent for sample mixing.

Scale It Back Remix EP is his latest project to be released on vinyl, although many of the album’s predecessors are also available on some hot wax. The EP is from his most recent album The Less You Know, The Better.

In order to win your free pair of tickets, and perhaps freedom from the shackles of work week depression, tell us in the comment box below your favorite song that expresses the intolerance for the mundane, be it the drone of weekly routine, work, school, or anything else you find particularly dismal.

Our pick would have to be “I Don’t Like Mondays” by The Boomtown Rats. Hey, at least it has a cheery beat.

The winner will be chosen at noon on Monday, March 26th.

    Fuck The Sex Pistols by Modern Life Is War is a huge all-time favorite. It’s a perfect little slice of raging melodic hardcore, not so much about the Sex Pistols in particular, but about breaking out of the mundanity of nostalgia and forging a new path. “Young ones, carry on/Destroy and annoy” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXvmGgf_PPA

    Ice Cube – Today Was a Good Day is a classic example. I mean, today i didn’t even have to use my AK, i have to say it was a good day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CPlF-IEkXQ

    “Dogs” by Pink Floyd .  A complete lambaste of a work-based lifestyle.  I DARE anyone to listen to that song and try to be enthusiastic about your job.
     
    “And in the end you’ll pack up, fly down south
    Hide your head in the sand
    Just another sad old man
    All alone, dying of cancer.” 
     
    <awesome interlude>
     
    “And when you loose control, you’ll reap the harvest you have sown
    And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
    And it’s too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around”
