CONTEST – We Are Scientists @ Lee's Palace – September 6, 2007
I’ve always been largely indifferent to Brooklyn’s We Are Scientists but the fact that they had the cojones to cover a Sigur Ros song acoustically – and do a decent job of it – earned them my respect. And happily, I now have an excuse to post it and share it with you, because as much as I like it it’s kind of way down the queue as far as getting a Cover Of The Week honours.
And that excuse is this – courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away to their show at Lee’s Palace on Thursday night (that’s September 6), which they’re playing with Entire Cities. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to be a scientist too” in the subject line and your full name in the body. And since there’s such a short turnaround for this one, the contest will close at 5PM tomorrow (September 5).
Also check out the video, which sounds like a different recording of the cover over top the original Sigur Ros video.
