There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of catching onto a great band before the masses figure out the secret. Rival Entertainment, Vinyl, and Ticket Alternative are going to give you the opportunity to do just that. We have 5 pairs of tickets to give away to the Barcelona & Low vs. Diamond show on Wednesday November 5th at Vinyl. We also have 5 copies each of Barcelona's & Low Vs. Diamond's latest CDs to award to some lucky readers! – Each winner will get a pair of tickets – and will be given both CDs when they arrive at the show!
Barcelona began as a solo project for Seattle singer/songwriter Brian Fennell and turned into a band with his childhood friend Brian Eichelberger (bass, strings) and college friends Chris Bristol (Guitar) and Rhett Stonelake (drums.) The band quickly attracted the attention of several A&R execs, but were never quite satisfied with the process of courting a label, and instead decided to focus on creating their current CD Absolutes. The album showcases piano-based heavily melodic rock. Barcelona is looking forward to building upon their loyal West-Coast fan base as a result of this tour.
Low vs. Diamond is a L.A. based quintet that Rolling Stone has named as an Artist to Watch in 2009. Their self titled album features several romantically themed tracks, many of which build to stadium worthy choruses. Blender Magazine raves, "[the CD}] is filled with 'roll down the car window and sing-until-you're-hoarse epics!'" Check out video of the band as they perform on The Late Show with David Letterman.
