CONTEST – Mates Of State & Black Kids @ The Phoenix – April 10, 2009
Mates Of StateIt’s a billing that sounds more like a sit-com than an evening of music – the most adorable parents in indie-rock, Mates Of State, teaming up with the precocious dance-floor wundkinds of Black Kids – but it’s a co-headline tour and it’s on right now, and it’s coming to Toronto on Friday evening with Mates Of State closing and Sunbears opening. If this were the sit-com, I guess they’d be the wacky neighbours.
And courtesy of rootmeansquare, I’ve got a pair of passes to Friday’s show to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with I want to see Mates Of State” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Get that in to me by midnight, April 7.
NPR is webcasting tonight’s MoS/BK show at the 9:30 Club in DC starting at 10PM ET. Mates Of State will also be releasing Re-Arranged Remixes: Volume 1 on April 14, a limited edition 12″ featuring four remixes of tracks from their latest album, Re-Arrange Us. They give an interview to The Boston Globe while Black Book talks to Black Kid Reggie Youngblood.
