TVD Ticket Giveaway: Dirty Projectors at the 9:30 Club, 8/18

The Dirty Projectors are in high-demand here in the nation’s capital.  The group’s  upcoming show at the 9:30 Club on Friday, August 17th, sold out so fast that another date was added for the following night, Saturday, August 18th. 

However, history inevitably repeated itself, and the subsequent show sold out shortly thereafter.  But weep not, loyal Dirty Projectors fans—we here at TVD have a pair of tickets to the latter show that are currently in need of a good home.

The group is currently touring in support of their sixth full-length album, Swing lo Magellan, released last month on Domino Records.  Since their initial burst onto the music scene in 2002 , the Brooklyn indie-rock sextet has become well known for their danceable, catchy songs and avant-garde style.

With music that has been described as equal parts innovative and bewildering, The Dirty Projectors’ live performances are always something to be seen.

Also taking the stage on Saturday will be local duo Wye Oak, hailing from Baltimore.

Want to check out The Dirty Projectors this Saturday?  For your chance to win two tickets to the show, simply comment below and tell us a show that you never got to attend because it sold out before you could get tickets.

I’m going to go with Radiohead’s show at the Verizon Center in June.

A winner will be chosen at noon on Friday, August 17th, and must confirm the tickets via email by 3pm that day.

    Modest Mouse a couple months ago at 9:30. Sold out in minutes; I was at work and couldn’t buy tickets. Saw them a couple weeks ago at Firefly, though.

    Flogging Molly with Frank Turner at Ram’s Head a couple years ago. Still haunts me to this day, two of my favorite bands.

    Wye Oak at Black Cat last year!  They have such a great following around here that it (and these shows) sold out quickly.

    Gotta go with the last Springsteen show at Verizon Center.  Tix went fast and the brokers were out in full force.  Sat that show out and will see at Nats Park.

    Dr. Dog at 930 club this past March! I went to buy a ticket for myself as an early birthday present but they were sold out. I stood outside the club looking for someone with an extra ticket but gave up because I couldn’t afford the over-double-the-face-value scalping price. Ain’t it strange.

    My Chemical Romance at 9:30 club last year…

    I asked my daughter if she wanted to catch Best Coast at the 9:30 last month, but she wasn’t interested.  The show sold out, and THEN she asked me about the show.  Sorry, kiddo, you’re too late.

    James Morrison at 9:30 a few months ago.  My paycheck cleared the day it sold out =|
