TVD Vinyl Giveaway: The Weeks, “Gutter Gaunt Gangster” EP

“We’ve been trying to turn people back on to vinyl for a few years now, mostly because of durability.”

“There’s a lot to be said about the sound quality and the warmness of vinyl, but the fact that after 50 years the only thing that changes is a little extra crackle is a good selling point to regular folk. I’ve lost innumerable amount of CDs to floorboard scratches or breaking in half. There’s nothing better than a kid coming up for a CD and leaving with a Weeks record as his first record.”

Between rehearsals for three, count ’em three, shows in New York City in the coming days, we chatted with The Weeks’ Sam Williams in advance of our giveaway which will find the band’s September 2012 EP release, “Gutter Gaunt Gangster” in the mailbox of one of you reading this right now.

If you’re in the New York area, your three opportunities to check out the band are at the Mercury Lounge on 1/20, the Knitting Factory on 1/22, and at Maxwell’s on 1/24.

The Weeks, signed to Kings of Leon’s label, Serpents and Snakes, will release their debut full length Dear Bo Jackson, on April 30th but here’s your chance to play a bit of catch up and enter to win last Summer’s EP.

Enter to win the “Gutter Gaunt Gangster” EP by telling us in the comments below, what band you wish you had seen live way before they broke big. There’s probably too many to list, so the most creative answer from one of you with a North American mailing address will win the EP.

We’ll choose a winner a week from today, 1/24!

    I think I would’ve liked to have seen The Kinks before they broke out because that would’ve made me just the right age to enjoy the 60’s.

  • ChasGuy

    The B-52’s. Would have been a ridiculous band to see in a really tiny bar.

  • LuLu

    fun. or The Lumineers.
