RATATAT @ The Mayan + Catfish & The Bottlemen @ Fonda Theatre (Giveaway)
Two (amazing) shows. Both on one night in one city. Who would you pick if you won the contest?
Everyone’s favorite duo to kick-back and r e l a x to are making a couple stops on the west coast while touring in support of their brand new album Magnifique released back in July.) The Mayan in Los Angeles is the place to be if you’re ready to get funky, and not to make it confusing since they are playing two back-to-back days at The Mayan – this contest is for Tuesday night’s show (9/29.) Of the two times I’ve caught RATATAT live, I’ve never been disappointed – even when it was nearly sunrise at Bonnaroo 2011 when I caught their set. Opening the night will be Hot Sugar.
Preview/Grab Magnifique on iTunes now. Also, tickets for the show are available here at about $40 a pop (c’mon, just enter!)
Catfish and the Bottlemen will be taking over Fonda Theatre, which is hands down my favorite venue in Los Angeles. It’s the perfect “in-between” sized venue where I’ve caught bands such as Washed Out, Future Islands, and once upon a time Iggy Azalea when she played a one-off homecoming show a couple years ago. Catfish and the Bottlemen are massive in the UK and although they just celebrated the 1 year anniversary of their debut full-length The Balcony (which is a pretty solid album that unfortunately slipped past me during the curation of LYED’s “end-of-year” list for 2015 *slaps self*) the hype is growing like wildfire in the states. After reading about their show in Philly at TLA (a venue I unfortunately never made it to), something tells me this show is going to blow the roof off the Fonda, so jump on this now otherwise they’ll probably return to play LA in the future at a much larger venue.
So now that you’re aware of both shows presented by Goldenvoice, enter below! You’ve go the best of both worlds in one night. It is mandatory that you leave a comment below detailing which show you’d want to attend if you won. That way, there will be two winners total (one for each of the shows winning a pair!) If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to shoot an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with RATATAT/CATB in the subject line! Best of luck to everyone as these are both massive shows, and I wish I could be at both at the same time!
