TVD Ticket and Signed Vinyl Giveaway:
Divine Fits at the 9:30 Club, 10/18

Perhaps one of the most-beloved, critically-acclaimed new supergroups of 2012, Britt Daniel (Spoon), Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs), and Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks), otherwise known as Divine Fits, released the new video for the single “Would That Not Be Nice” just last week.

Stereogum premiered the video, elaborating that the “terse and hard-pounding first single together … is quietly proving to be one of 2012′s greatest, most enduring rock songs.” We have your chance to see it live when the power trio stop by the 9:30 Club next week because we are sending one of you plus a friend to the show for free.

Not only that, but the winner will receive a signed copy of the Divine Fits’ debut LP, aptly titled A Thing Called Divine Fits, which was released via Merge at the end of August.

Consequence of Sound hails, “Divine Fits is exactly what its name implies: a perfect state of emotion. There is no leader at the helm, the album’s songwriting is split right down the middle, and it’s an amalgamation of ideas.” In an interview with CoS, Daniel agrees with this assessment. “To me, that’s one of the coolest parts of this band. One of the fun parts and new experiences of this is that all those duties are spread around. It’s a lot more fun for me.”

Since the album’s release, I’ve been saying that Divine Fits sounds “like Spoon and Wolf Parade—or Handsome Furs, depending on the song in question—had a baby.” For a chance to win both a pair of tickets to the show and a signed copy of the new LP, tell us your favorite song by any of the bands featured in this “supergroup.”

That’s a lot of songs on a lot of albums to choose from. There are seven Spoon albums alone! But I think I’m going with “Evangeline” by Handsome Furs. (RIP.)

The winner will be chosen at noon on Wednesday, October 17th. The signed record will be available for pickup at the show. Tickets are still available—don’t miss out.

    I hate to be too mainstreamish, but I’m gonna go with “The Underdog” by Spoon. That was the first song I heard, and it got me on board. It’ll always be my fav.

    Gotta go with Written in Reverse by Spoon! You can’t beat the intensity and groove in that song

  • HowBoutDan

    “Don’t Make Me A Target” by Spoon
    “Thugs and sticks and bats and ballsFor nuclear dicks with their dialect drawlsThey come from a parking lot townWhere nothing lives in the sun”
    Come for the rhythm, stay for the lyrics.

    “Chicago at Night” by Spoon.  I moved to Chicago by myself right around the time Girls Can Tell came out and felt like that song was written as a welcome (albeit a dark one) for me. Knowing no one at the time, music was my friend, so hearing that song puts me in a warm, fuzzy place.
