CONTEST – Dean & Britta @ The Mod Club, March 12, 2007
But I will direct you to some more interviews with Dean Wareham and/or Britta Phillips – Exclaim! asks their stock questions of Wareham and get some interesting answers, WERS has a short chat with the duo while Lunapark6 has a long one and Dean tells The Boston Herald that we can expect to hear some Luna songs when they play the Mod Club next Monday night – honestly, with two of their own albums to draw on it never occurred to me that they’d play Luna songs. Without Sean and Lee, that’ll certainly be… different. Update:
Okay, so the Herald link doesn’t work because they want you to pay for their articles. But if you google “boston herald dean britta”, you can read the whole thing from the Google link. Why? No one makes Google pay. Link fixed.
And courtesy of Against The Grain, you can be there to hear it all. I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away to said March 12 show… but wait! There’s more! Each winner will also get a copy of Back Numbers for their very own to take home and share with friends and family. How exciting is that? To enter, leave a comment below telling me which Luna songs you would most like to hear Dean and Britta perform live, and no obvious ones like “Bonnie & Clyde”. Been there, done that. And if you can’t attend the show but want to chime in anyway, please do so – just mention that you’re not entering the contest. This contest will close at midnight, March 8. Update 2: Okay, thanks to D&B management, I’ve also got four pairs of passes for their March 10 show at Main Hall in Montreal – same deal, just leave me a comment to enter and also mention if you’re entering for the Montreal show. Thanks.
And thanks to one of Stereogum’s commenters for pointing out that Dean & Britta’s new video for “Words You Used To Say” is actually an homage to Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin’s video for “Melody”. Check it out below.
