TVD Ticket Giveaway: Pet Shop Boys at Strathmore, 9/19

You’d be forgiven if you thought that ’80s stalwarts the Pet Shop Boys have maintained their longevity by releasing crystalline dance track after dance track, because well, they have. Theirs is an electronic well with seemingly endless bounty.

As if to underscore this opening salvo, the Pet Shop Boys return with a new release on their own brand new imprint, x2 entitled, Electric. July 15th is when the vinyl version hits your local mom and pops.

The tour to celebrate Electric’s release wends its way to Bethesda, MD this coming September for a stop at the Music Center at Strathmore, and we have an opportunity for you to get your hands on a pair of tickets before they even see the light of day among the general public.

We’re going ask that you act fast if you’d like a shot at TVD’s tickets for PSB. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10AM and we’ve got a 24-hour window for you to enter to win before the throngs assemble, debit cards in hand.

Enter by telling us in the comments below your chose of ’80s artist or band who has thrived and kept relevant well into current tastes and time—y’know, like Vince Clarke from Erasure who began his career with that lil’ band Depeche Mode.

We’ll choose one winner for a pair of tickets tomorrow, Friday, 5/3 at 9AM. Tickets go on sale at 10AM on Friday, 5/3.

    No band has stayed as relevant as U2.  They rock the ages.

    I have to give props to Sting who due to his talent and opne mindedness, has manged to remain current and contiintues to sell out venues in seconds.  He was great on the grammies earlier this year. Honorable mention to the claassic sounds of David Bowie, the Talking Heads and the B-52s (fi they are still performing together).

  • ChrisWorks

    I would say Danny elfman has remained relevant extremely well. Look at his imdb page and see just how much music he has contributed to the film industry since his time in Oingo Boingo and alot of them are very popular films

  • Peon

    My vote’s for REM or Depeche Mode. Still relevant (although REM members recently went their separate ways).

  • Peonova

    My vote’s for REM or Depeche Mode. Still relevant (although REM members recently went their separate ways).

  • Diego_Yan

    No doubt Vince Clarke who is the king of synth, started with Depeche Mode, then Yazoo, then Erasure…. let alone his crazy collaboration with Martin Gore last year

  • ChristyLaw

    My vote would have to be a combination of Neil Tenant as he did Electronica, Erasure, Depeche Mode, New Order, Yaz, Fat Boy Slim from the House Martins, The Cure where Robert Smith and Siouxsie Sioux had done The Glove, Orchestral Manuevers in the Dark, Marc Almond, and the list goes on!
