Active Child @ Stereogum x W Hotel Suite Sessions

Stereogum has partnered with W Hotels to deliver a series of intimate concert performances from some of our favorite artists. First up is one of Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2010, Active Child, who played an exclusive session for us at the W San Francisco. Over the summer Active Child released the delicately woozy debut album You Are All That I See, pushing his gossamer soul-inflected new wave to new heights. He’s collaborated with How To Dress Well, booked a tour with M83, and as you’ll see in the Session, developed a stronger stage presence than almost anyone else in the bedroom-pop game. Watch “Hangin On”:

Now we’re giving away a chance to one lucky reader (US residents only, sorry) and a friend to attend our next Suite Session starring DOM at Washington D.C.’s W Hotel on Tuesday, 11/15/11. The prize includes air travel for two, complimentary access to the Suite Session, and accommodations at the hotel the night of the event. Read the rules and exact prizing details here.

To enter you need be a fan of Stereogum on Facebook and comment below with your favorite Dom song via Facebook Connect (do not use your ‘Gum user account on this post — we’ll have to be able to check if you are a fan of Stereogum on FB when the sweepstakes ends).
