Win Tickets ($50): The Dandy Warhols: “Land of Misfit Toys” @ Crystal Ballroom | w/ Telegram, After Party w/ DJ Rescue (December 10)
Three days after The Dandy Warhols finished recording their ninth album, Distortland, a 14,000 lb gush of water collapsed the roof of the Dandy’s studio, filling the place with rainwater and 80 years of roofing materials. Had it happened a few days later, the Dandy’s would have been on tour and the two months of humidity which ensued would have wrecked every last piece of gear. Well, as any good comedian knows, timing is everything. To win, comment on this post here.

Win Tickets ($44): Shook Twins @ Revolution Hall | With Special guest Rabbit Wilde, Folk Pop (December 10)
“I love the harmonies of the Shook Twins, the dreamlike songs that seem somehow permeated by the American Folk tradition, without actually being part of it.

With Bo Ayars and the All-Star Horns. This is now an annual tradition. We celebrate Franks’s birthday, on the day, so this year it’s on a Monday.

This night we’ll play such favorites such as “The Lady Is A Tramp”, “New York, New York” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”. Throw in a Bossa Nova rendition of “Baubles, Bangles and Beads” and “Change Partners”, add an intimate saloon song or two like “Angel Eyes” or “One For My Baby” and we’ll have a ring a-ding ding time!
