What do you get when you combine Basque music with British music? You get Bisque! Mmm, delicious bisque.
Wait, no. That's not what you get. You get Crystal Fighters, the festive, utterly danceable group from UK/Spain that's coming to Portland next week! It's going to be quite a live show, as Crystal Fighters' unique blend of
tarragon, heavy cream, and fresh Maine lobster traditional Spanish folk music and anti-gravity electronic dance music is unlike anything out there. See for yourself: There's a bevy of free downloads over at Crystal Fighters' Soundcloud page, so go and check 'em out.
To make matters better: We're giving away a pair of tickets to see 'em on Saturday, June 2 at the Wonder Ballroom. Want to win 'em? It's easy. Just send an email to this address with "Crystal Fighters" in the subject line. Be sure to include your first and last name in the email. We'll pick a winner at random* and that lucky winner, plus a guest, will get into the show for free. So enter, and good luck! We're keeping this one quick, so you'll need to enter by 3 pm tomorrow (Friday) for a chance to win—after that, the contest will be closed forever and ever.
*special consideration MIGHT be given to any entrant who hand-delivers some delicious lobster bisque to the Mercury office this afternoon
