TVD Ticket Giveaway: Poliça, the 9:30 Club, 11/6

Poliça started in July of 2011 as a project between Channy Leaneagh and Ryan Olson, both members of the band Gayngs. The dynamic created was a balance between Olsen’s lowkey beats and Leaneagh’s vocal wisps.

After the addition of a bass player in Chris Bierden and Ben Ivascu and Drew Christopherson (both drummers), they recorded an album. Give You the Ghost was mixed by Spoon’s Jim Eno and had two songs that featured Bon Iver’s Mike Noyce, released February of 2012.

Poliça is coming to the 9:30 Club on November 6th, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away.

This past October, they released their sophomore album Shulamith. The band’s second record returns with mellow beats and vocal croons and a bit tighter production and has garnered quick acclaim from the Guardian and Consequence of Sound.


Olsen’s other project Marijuana Deathsquads is also billed. Along with Isaac Gale and Stefon Alexander, Olsen makes a wide variety of music through Marijuana Deathsquads that leans on electronic experimentalism, modern psychedelia, and improvisation.

So, how do you win tickets? In the comments below, tell us your favorite artist that’s in more than one active project. I like Team Supreme so I’m going with Machinedrum, who also is 1/2 of Jets and 1/2 of Sepalcure.

The winner will be decided tomorrow at 9am for tomorrow night’s show. The show was formerly a late show but has been rescheduled for 8pm doors. Tickets are still available.
