CONTEST – Air @ The Phoenix – March 23, 2010
Luciana Val & Franco MussoI’ve never seen them live so I can’t say for certain, but I feel pretty comfortable in saying that the upcoming North American tour from French duo Air in support of last year’s Love 2 is going to one smooth affair.
I imagine that on the evening of March 23, 2010, Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel will stride out onstage at a fashionably late hour, through a cloud of smoke that provides just the right balance of obfuscation and ambience – perhaps combined with a tasteful laser light show – and proceed to bathe The Phoenix in effortlessly elegant electronic pop, eliciting gentle nodding in time with the rhythm from the impossibly stylish audience, obviously all dressed to the nines without looking like they’re trying at all. Which is perhaps the reason that I’ve never seen Air live – they wouldn’t let me past the velvet rope.
You, however, might well be someone who meets those high standards of taste and class – after all, you’re on this site, aren’t you? Clearly someone who appreciates the finer things in life. Tickets to the show are $32.50 in advance but courtesy of LiveNation, I have three pairs of passes to give away to the show and really, isn’t it just SO much better to be able to say, “I’m on the list”? To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I need some Air” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, March 14.
