Absolute Monarchs, Gaytheist, Constant Lovers Ticket Giveaway
Goodness. Gracious. Great balls of fire.
Will Chop Suey be able to contain this spirited brand of rock and roll madness on Thursday? There’s only one way to find out. A ticket giveaway courtesy of your friends at Good to Die Records and this website. Three great bands (Check the title of the post, n00bs) and one cool DJ (Hannah Levin) want to make your night
forgettable due to an alcohol induced blackout unforgettable due to all the good music you’re going to witness in such a short period of time.
Absolute Monarchs and their album 1 is critically acclaimed. It will be ranked highly on the KEXP “Best Albums of 2012″ list. You listen to everything KEXP tells you to do, therefore I know you will be at this show. Did I mention we’ll be giving away a copy of the Absolute Monarchs album? Now you know.
Constant Lovers and their album True Romance was one of the best albums of 2011. It also had one of the creepiest album covers I have seen in a long time. Anytime you see a male thumb penetrating a bar of soap, unsightly, violent imagery is probably the first thing that will invade your mind. What? The only thing you could come up with was a shower shaving session gone wrong? Dig deeper, pun intended.
Gaytheist, despite having a juvenile band name, are not adolescent in their songwriting by any means. Their album Stealth Beats has burrowed its way into my iphone playlist and hasn’t moved for solid month. One part Torche, one part Quicksand, this supergroup has taught me that judging a book by a cover is a cliche that should not victimize me this late in my life. “Post Apocalyptic Lawsuit”? Yes, please. I want my law firm familiar with the aftermath of a nuclear wasteland. “Pointless-Helpless” describes my personality in two words, hyphen not included.
