Here’s hoping this week’s ‘Gum Drop helped stave off those post-long-weekend hangovers everybody’s nursing. In case you didn’t get around to opening it this AM (or if maybe your spam filter hates the word “drop”), sift through the inbox and grab that darkly danceable Xiu Xiu remix MP3. Jamie Stewart says it’s about his “obsession with sex.” So, there’s that. But just as importantly, those with lazy mouses missed out on this week’s contest: The good folks at Bowery Presents are offering two subscribers the chance to win a pair of tickets to Arcade Fire and a pair of tickets to Interpol.
That’s right, two winners, either in New York or who can find a way to get there, each get a pair of tickets to both shows. Don’t let back to school/work-week grind bum you out — here’s your chance catch Montreal’s premiere anthem-rockers and New York’s best-dressed quartet live in the flesh. Non NYers, worry not: Our ticket giveaways won’t always be for Big Apple shows! But these two oughta be good. The deets…
Interpol 9/14 @ Madison Square Garden
Arcade Fire 10/6 @ Randall’s Island
