Navigating NYC during the last hours of the year is always a nightmare, but this year we’ve got just the fix: Go see Clap Your Hands’ 12/31 show at Hammerstein Ballroom! Stereogum’s proud to co-present the show with Alec and the guys (and Bob Mould’s opening!); the new stuff won’t leave our heads, and CYHSY’s evolving into a bona fide beast on stage. Plus, it’s a warm place to be with good music, good tunes, and real people (not to get all Almost Famous on ya). And not only are we psyched that we now have New Year’s plans, but we’re inviting ten of you to join us! It’s the stuff indie-rock dreams are made of.
So we have five pairs of tickets to giveaway, and we’re gonna do it like always; to enter the contest, post a comment telling us (1) how you discovered the Clap (we blogged them before PFork, of course, but it’s cool if that’s where you found ‘em) and (2) naming your favorite tune. We’ll pick five winners at random on Wednesday 12/27 at 6PM EST, and the ten of you will have a solid story for the back-to-work NYE watercooler conversation. Here’s to ringing in the Oh-Seven! Good luck.
