TVD Ticket Giveaway: Vetusta Morla at U Street Music Hall, 3/21

Vetusta Morla: A force of rock music from Spanish origins coming to U Street Music Hall this Wednesday, March 21st.

Spain Arts & Culture and 9:30 Club are proud to present Madrid’s greatest export, whose two studio albums, 2008’s Un Dia en el Mundo and last year’s Mapas, received the Gold Record and the Platinum Record in Spain, respectively.

Both albums were released on Pequeño Salto Mortal, their very own label, “created to offer themselves a secondary road to bypass the usual channels of the recording industry.” No strangers to thinking outside the box, they refuse to be labeled merely as World Music, but draw heavily from “outside the rock tradition” while still remaining loyal to its core. Vetusta Morla sold out La Rivera (think twice the size of 9:30 Club) five nights in a row, but you have the chance to see them in a more intimate setting right here in DC.


For the chance to win a pair of tickets to Wednesday’s show, tell us the band you’ll probably never see outside an arena stage, but wish you could.

I’m going to go with Radiohead because their sold-out Verizon Center show in June has made so many of us very, very sad. (Anyone have a ticket to sell?)

The winner will be chosen next Tuesday (3/20) at noon.

    I’d say Interpol. I wish I could see them.

  • Chris

    Gosh, that would have to be the Black Keys.

  • IsabelMF

    I”ll go for a classic: U2

  • Cricri83

    Interpol does a lot of small venues so totally possible.
    I’ll have to say The Killers, they became so big so fast, it’s ridiculous! Now, send me the ticket, will ya? 😉

  • LuciaLM

    Arcade Fire, definitely.

  • Bea

    I’d have to go with The Police!
     

  • RonTheDon

    Red Hot CHili Peppers. That’s one band I can think of.

  • Catherine

    The Flaming Lips, would love to see them in a smaller venue.

  • Jaimef

    They’re a big band, but I’ll go with Coldplay.  I would like to hear their music translate into a small scenario…unless I’m allowed to say Vetusta Morla!  Great band!
