CONTEST – Beach House @ The El Mocambo – March 28, 2008

If you’re having trouble sleeping of late, you may want to consider heading to the El Mocambo this Friday night when Baltimore guitar-and-keys duo Beach House pays us a visit in support of their new album Devotion. This isn’t to say they’ll put you to sleep from boredom – they simply trade in and excel at the sort of slow-motion, foggy day at a gauze factory, pure aural narcolepsy that could take on the toughest case of insomnia. I totally mean that in a positive sense. I think I dozed off when I saw them a couple years ago but I was sitting in a comfy chair beside a roaring fire (it was an unconventional venue). You try staying awake in that scenario.
Courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got a pair of passes to give away to this show, which also features The Papercuts and Sing Leaf. To enter, shoot me an email at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to live in a Beach House” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Do this by midnight tonight – March 26. And if you don’t happen to win… try some warm milk. Or a shot of brandy. Or two.
My Old Kentucky Blog recently ran an interview with Alex and Victoria of Beach House.
