[UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winner has been notified.]
AgesandAges are playing a show this Monday at Mississippi Studios, and we've got a pair of tickets to give away! The many-membered Portland group has been working hard on their second album (the followup to the terrific Alright You Restless), and while it will be a bit longer before that sees the light of day, AgesandAges have been releasing a bunch of really cool covers over on their Soundcloud page. Here's their version of the Kinks' dulcet bossa nova tune "No Return," one of the more obscure but no less excellent songs from the classic Something Else album.
AgesandAges - "No Return" [Kinks cover]
Be sure to check out their Soundcloud for more covers, including a Jay Reatard song and a terrific one that was originally by oft-forgotten British band Cymande. Plus, they'll be putting a new one up each month.
Now! About this ticket giveaway! Want to see AgesandAges at Mississippi Studios on Monday, May 7? (They're playing with two other great local bands: Sun Angle and Death Songs.) All you gotta do is send an email to this address with "AgesandAges" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email, and if you feel like it, include the song you would most like to see AgesandAges cover. A winner will be chosen at random, who will then get into the show for free with a guest! It's simple. You can't lose. (Well, you can not win, but that's not the same as losing.) We'll keep this quick; the contest will close Friday afternoon (tomorrow) at 3 pm. Good luck!
