What the Pitchfork is going on here?!

So, WRUW regularly receives concert tickets to local shows to give away to listeners. All these concerts are listed in a big book at the station, and DJs sign up to give them away on a first-come-first-serve basis. We usually only have two sets of tickets to give away. And, being a college station chock-full of hipsters, most of the very indie shows are taken well before I get to them.

So that is why I am completely baffled by this: No one signed up to give away tickets to the upcoming Serena Maneesh show! Serena Maneesh, the Norwegian shoegaze band that Pitchfork regularly piddle themselves over! Completely vacant! I wasn't quite as blown away by the album as the magaziners were, but it's still quite good. And I hear they put on an amazing show. The only reasonable explanation I can come up with is that people stayed away since we don't have the album at the station, hence they can't play them on air unless they have their own, probably imported copy. Who knows. Either way, their bashfulness has left me with awesome tickets to give away. I am excited.

The show is at the Grog Shop Wednesday March 30th, at 9pm. The Volta Sound, a Cleveland band [I am personally unfamiliar, see their website for samples of music] and Henry James are openers. If you're interested in going FOR FREE, listen to Music Is My Boyfriend on WRUW FM 91.1 on Monday March 27th from 3-5pm for a chance to win a pair of tickets.

Maybe I'll even get a staff ticket. That'd be fun. And very very loud; I have a feeling earplugs will be a must for this show.
