TVD Ticket Giveaway: Jukebox the Ghost at the 9:30 Club, 6/29

When your ears are ringing with simplified bass as your head pounds with the trivial mess of lyrics that compose the logic-defying, still-popular hit “Call Me Maybe,” a catchy song with soul is not only refreshing, but damn near life saving.

Imagine, for a moment, songs to sing along to without wanting to punch yourself or those around you in the face. Jukebox the Ghost is your knight in indie armor to rescue us all from summer hit mediocrity.

We’re here to help. You can save your sanity without destroying your car’s radio by winning a pair of free tickets to see Jukebox the Ghost perform a dose of lively melodies at the 9:30 Club, this Friday, June 9th.

Ben Thornewill, Tommy Siegel, and Jesse Kristin comprise the DC-based trio Jukebox the Ghost, a name derived from a Captain Beefheart song and a line from a Vladimir Nabokov book. The group has recently released their third album, Safe Travels, along with two explosively upbeat singles, “Somebody” and “Oh, Emily.”

To win your pair of tickets, as well as the piece of mind that talent isn’t wasted in the summer heat, tell us, in the comment box below, a radio-hit song you would like to see nuked and replaced with something by Jukebox the Ghost.

I think my choice is obvious with Carly Rae Jespen’s “Call Me Maybe.”

The winner will be chosen at noon on Wednesday, June 27th.

    “Call me maybe” All day.

  • JustSayNo

    Boyfriend by Justin Bieber….a close second is One Thing by One Direction.

    I don’t listen to the radio. However, I somehow keep running into that “what makes you beautiful” song by (after googling it) One Direction.

  • Dubs

    Drake- The Motto

    i’m going to have to go w/ One Direction’s “That’s What Makes You Beautiful,” but I’ve never heard the “Call me Maybe” song, I’ve just seen it referenced 50 million times. Maybe we can nuke it from the internet after we nuke one direction from the radio.

    starships by nicki minaj!!! i have heard that song way too often and would love for some jukebox the ghost! either that or back in time by pitbull! 🙂

  • lonetriker

    “We Are Young” by fun. I’s much rather see this style of more fun (pardon the pun and the rhyme) and upbeat “corporate indie” than that boring anthem with a half thought-out verse

  • starktp

    “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry makes my ears bleed. Please make it stop. If crazy late night antics is what you crave in a song, try replacing it with JTG’s “Schizophrenia.”

  • LSerks

    anything by Pitbull

  • Jilll

    “Sexify” by Leah Labelle might be one of the worst songs ever made.  So, that’s my vote.
