SF Ticket Giveaways: Q-Tip / Cool Kids, Deerhoof, more


We're back with another round of free passes for this month's shows at the Mezzanine in San Francisco. Last time around, we fronted passes for Soulwax and Yelle / Passion Pit, each a killer night in its own right. Soulwax turned out to be the maddest, sweatiest dancefest / tweakathon of the year - I've never been to a show that put so many people out of their fucking minds with euphoria. I'm not an absolutist - the place was nuts. The next night was Halloween - Passion Pit kicked off the costume party with a warm indietronic set, and Yelle took bubblepop into high gear to close out a killer pair of dance shows. We boozed each of the bands up at a nearby bar before the show and got them talking to our cameras, so keep an eye out for some interviews soon.

Next up for our ticket giveaways:

Thursday, November 13th: Q-Tip headlines; The Cool Kids open up. This is the first stop on the 2k Sports Bounce Tour, so expect video games and a parade of hip hop.

Saturday, November 15th: Quintessential weirdos Deerhoof headline; Experimental Dental School and Oakland-based Kit open the bill. This is a trio well grounded in the avant garde, so come expecting to be fucked with. (In the best way, of course.)

You know the deal: we've got two passes to each show. Send an email to and let us know which show you'd like to see. If you're interested in both, list your order of preference - you can only win tickets for one show, so we'll be spreading the wealth. We'll take all the emails we receive by Tuesday, November 10th at 4pm and randomly select our winners. Best of luck and see you at the Mezzanine!
