TVD 24-Hour Ticket Giveaway: Hot Chip
at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 7/22

Updated: Tickets are still available to see Hot Chip, and there is a “Shut Up” discount offer through the Shut Up and Play the Hits documentary. The password is playhits.—Ed.

Face it, it is hard going to bed on Sunday knowing that the repetitive drone of yet another work day is right around the corner, and this feeling is only amplified during the summer months. Luckily, TVD is here to help you make the most of your weekend before you go back to the week’s routine.

London electronica group Hot Chip is touring in support of their new album In Our Heads and bringing their addictive dance beats to the Merriweather Post Pavilion this Sunday, July 22nd. We are giving away a pair of tickets to the show just because we love you.

While it seems like many electronic groups today are trying to savagely bass-pound you to death, Hot Chips hypnotic sound invokes an ambiance of subtle sophistication. Their gentle and melodic vocals, playful percussion, and infectious bass shocks your body into movement while a gaping smile spreads across your face. The best kind of happy pill.

Along for the ride is Sleigh Bells—Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller’s experimental pop machine. The New York-based duo released their sophomore album Reign of Terror earlier this year. And for those who were lucky enough to see Shut Up and Play the Hits last night and can’t get enough, dance maestro James Murphy will be DJing.

In honor of our 24-hour giveaway, we want to know which song you would pick to if you were forced to listen to one on repeat for 24 hours.

I’m going with “Moonage Daydream” by Bowie. Tell us your answer in the comment box below, and you could win.

The winner will be selected tomorrow (7/20) at noon and must confirm the tickets via email by 3pm.

    Division Bell – David Gilmore

    Speaking of SUAPTH, I’d probably have to go with LCD Soundsystem’s 45:33. Long enough that I won’t have to hear it repeated TOO many times, plus it’s pretty great anyway.

  • Nic E

    One Big Holiday – My Morning Jacket. It’s like a 6 minute song, so less repeat and more Jamming! 

  • JarrodGrimm

    I think I’d have to go with “Reckoner” by  Radiohead. yeah, that would be ok to hear for 24 hours straight.

  • Ken

    “Steps and Numbers” by the Appleseed Cast. 

  • Ssss

    LCD Soundsystem “Yeah” – Pretentious played for 24 hours straight would make for a groovy 24 hour marathon o’ fun. Yeah!

  • Ssss

    LCD Soundsystem “Yeah” – Pretentious Version played for 24 hours straight would make for a groovy 24 hour marathon o’ fun. Yeah!

  • searae13

    Idioteque by Radiohead .. i’ve probably done the 24 hour sesh already anyways 🙂

  • cbrew24

    “Shadowplay” – Joy Division

  • dancingbee

    “Get Busy Living” – Goldfish

  • alipannoni

    Do I get extra points for saying one of the three mentioned? In which case Rill Rill no question. But seriously, I would pick that song regardless. Man, that song was like my anthem. I loved it so much I even did a lighting presentation inspired by it for my lighting design class. I mixed the song with Helter Skelter (the Across the Universe version) and another Sleigh Bells one, A/B Machines. It involved lots of pink flashing lights, bubbles, a strange looking man walking around and over three dozen balloons….
