Giveaway (Part 2): Swans at South Side Music Hall

15 Feb

When they ended their 15-year run (with a long list of lineup changes) in 1997, influential New York post-punkers Swans left behind a broken-hearted fan base.

But last year, founder Michael Gira resurrected the group and they released My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky in September. And their sound is just as loud and intense as it was in their early years (or, as Gira calls it, simultaneously “soul-uplifting and body-crushing”).

Dallas fans will have a chance to catch the group live when they play South Side Music Hall this Saturday. And one of our readers (and a guest) will get to see them for free. If you want a shot, send an email with “Swans” as the subject and your name in the body to giveaways@daybowbow.net by 11:59 p.m.

Swans will play South Side Music Hall on Saturday, February 19 with openers Wooden Hand. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show.

Giveaway: Robyn at South Side Music Hall

14 Feb

I don’t think Robyn needs much of an introduction, but she still deserves one. The Swedish pop star started her career 15 years ago and has found worldwide success ever since. She had two hits in the US, “Show Me Love” and “Do You Know (What It Takes)”, in 1997 but her subsequent releases barely made a splash in the states.

That is until last year, when she began releasing singles from the album Body Talk .(which she has released in three parts) “Dancing on My Own”, which received two Grammy nominations, is probably the most popular (though “Hang with Me” has garnered its share of covers, including one my Denton’s own Sarah Jaffe).

Now Robyn is adored across several demographics, although her altered, electro-pop sound makes her more of an underground darling than a pop princess (well … queen … she’s past that princess phase of her life). Hell, Jaime even loves her … like, really loves her.

And we have two pairs of tickets to see Robyn at South Side Music Hall this Friday. Just send an email to giveaways@daybowbow.net with “Robyn” in the subject line and your name in the body by 11:59 p.m. We’ll notify winners tomorrow.

Robyn plays South Side Music Hall on Friday, February 18, with openers Diamond Rings and Natalia Kills. Tickets are $22.50 in advance and $25 the day of the show.

Giveaway: The Octopus Project presents Hexadecagon at South Side Music Hall

17 Nov

Austin’s The Octopus Project are no strangers to performing in Dallas/Ft. Worth, and they always put on an entertaining show. But tomorrow night’s presentation of their new album, Hexadecagon, in its entirety at Southside Music Hall is sure to blow all of their past DFW performances out of the water.

It’s going to be a concert-in-the-round, with the audience surrounding the band (of course) and speakers and screens surrounding the audience. All that and Wiley Wiggins, too (playing video loops, not acting)!

And you have a shot at seeing this spectacle for free. Just send an email with “The Octopus Project” as the subject and your full name in the body to giveaways@daybowbow.net by tonight at 11:59 p.m. We’ll notify the winner tomorrow. If you don’t win the tickets, you can still grab some for $17.

The Octopus Project plays The Southside Music Hall on Thursday, November 18 with support from Jacob Borshard and New Fumes. Doors are at 7:30.

Giveaway: Dr. Dog at South Side Music Hall

9 Nov


Today we have a pair of tickets for one lucky reader to see Dr. Dog at South Side Music Hall on Thursday. I must say that, even after a weekend packed with live shows and late nights, I’m very excited about this show. I’ve never had the chance to see Dr. Dog live and I’ve heard only great things. And South Side Music Hall is quickly becoming one of my favorite venues in Dallas.

For your chance to win the tickets, send an email with “Dr. Dog” in the subject line, your name and the answer to the (very easy) trivia question below to giveaways@daybowbow.net by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. We’ll notify the winner on Thursday.

Question: What is name of the former Dr. Dog drummer whose first single we reviewed a few months ago?

Dr. Dog plays South Side Music Hall on Thursday, November 11 with openers Here We Go Magic. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 the day of the show.
