Bringing it on home.
TVD Ticket Giveaway: Destroyer at the 9:30 Club, 6/16

Vancouver native Dan Bejar began the project known as Destroyer in 1995. His first album, We’ll Build Them a Golden Bridge, was an electric folk record, setting the stage for the early Bowie comparisons that were certain to follow his particular vocal style.

In 1998, Bejar added a rhythm section and took it into the studio for the first time. Since then, the music Bejar has created through cryptic lyrics and a unique voice gave Destroyer a notable voice within the music world. Bejar alone has collaborated his songwriting style with notable acts like the New Pornographers and Frog Eyes over the past ten years to add to his many accolades.

In 2011, Destroyer released a brand new album Kaputt. Pitchfork placed the album at 2nd on its list of the Top 50 Albums of 2011, and it received wholly positive reviews from music critics alike. Now, Bejar and the Destroyer crew have decided to hit the road again and they’re coming to the 9:30 Club this Saturday, June 16th. Naturally, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away!

Happy Flag Day, DC! This week TVD celebrates you with ticket giveaways that will be announced every day, including one each day from 9:30 Club for recently announced shows that have just gone on sale. Don’t miss your chance to catch some amazing performances.

Since Bejar is known so well for his cryptic lyrics, the way to win the tickets is simple. Tell us in the comments below, the song with your favorite lyrics of all time.

Mine has to come from Simon and Garfunkel’s “Kathy’s Song.” Every word just gets to me when I hear it.

The winner will be chosen tomorrow, Friday (6/15), at noon, and the tickets must be confirmed via email by 3pm, so get on it. Good luck!
