TVD Ticket Giveaway: Beverly at the Boot & Saddle, 8/12

Fresh off the release of their debut album Careers, dreamy garage rockers Beverly are hitting the road…with a bit of a twist.

Beverly began as an outlet for Drew Citron and former Vivian Girls member Frankie Rose as the two were touring together behind Rose’s solo work in 2012. Citron happened to find herself in the right place at the right time when Rose needed a keyboardist and back-up vocalist, and while on the road the two would come together to write what would become Careers, the debut album from Beverly.

As Rose has shifted focus back to her own work, Beverly now rests solely in Citron’s hands. She has rounded together members from Chairlift, Class Actress, and the Beets and is taking things on the road. And despite the sugary-sweet hooks and melodies, Citron’s shaping Beverly more toward a loud, fuzzy, post-punk sound.

Next Tuesday night (8/12) Citron will be bringing this new chapter of the band to Philadelphia to kick off their tour—and we have a pair of tickets to give away!

While the songs were created and developed while Citron and Rose were trekking from state to state, they managed to find time when they were both back at their homes in Brooklyn to book studio time. During the break, the two recorded at Dr. Wu’s, a studio in their hometown where Yale Yng-Wong worked with them, mixing and engineering much of the album.

Careers showcases Citron’s knack for writing catchy, clever pop tunes with Rose’s strong sense harmony and song arrangement. The album is a 30 minute peek into their world—and it’s a sound and style you should get used to now before you start hearing it everywhere.

Beverly is but one of a current crop of bands to emerge with a powerful and mighty frontwoman. To win tickets to see Beverly at the Boot & Saddle on Tuesday, August 12th, drop a comment below naming your favorite female fronted band. (Will it be St. Vincent or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs? Maybe kick it a little old school with Joan Jett? Personally, I am going to go with No Doubt. Just kidding. Okay, maybe I’m not.)

One winner for a pair of tickets will be selected next Monday, 8/11. Tickets are also available for purchase.
