The Winning Ticket: Cut Copy @ Echostage, 3/20/14

PrintAs a way to say thanks to our loyal readers, We Love DC will be giving away a pair of tickets to a concert sponsored by or held at the 9:30 Club to one lucky reader periodically. Keep your eyes open for opportunities to find out what tickets we’re giving away, and leave a comment for your chance to be the lucky winner!

Today, we are giving away a pair of tickets to see Cut Copy at Echostage on Thursday, March 20.

This Australian quartet became fast indie favorites after their first album, Bright Like Neon Love, and continue to win praise with their fourth and latest album, Free Your Mind, which was released in November. With their latest songs, the new wavers have become even more chilled out, but they still remain all about making catchy dance music. To my mind, Dan Whitford built upon the perfect formula when he combined his synths with Ben Browning’s bass in particular as well as guitars from Tim Hoey and drums from Mitchell Scott. While I’ve always felt while they owe a debt to New Order, they are by no means imitations, and they are well worth catching live on their latest tour.

For your chance to win these tickets, simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between 9am and 4pm today. Feel free to leave any comment, but I encourage you to share your favorite song by Cut Copy, because I think they are great! One entry per email address, please. Tickets for this show are also available through Ticketmaster.

For the rules of this giveaway…

Comments will be closed at 4pm and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

  1. Huge Cut Copy fan, though I’ve only seen them once, during the ‘In Ghost Colours’ tour. Favorite song would probably have to be from that album. ‘So Haunted’ maybe?

  2. man i love cut copy

    i’ve seen them five times and every time they’ve been amazing. The best show was a few years back at the 9:30 Club, when they were touring for In Ghost Colours. The club was absolutely packed. The Presets opened and while they were good, Cut Copy was absolutely filthy.

    I’ve never been that sticky in public. the highlight of the set was obviously ‘so haunted’ which led to mass writhing. it was notorious. it looked like the rave scene in the matrix reloaded.

    i gotta see them again

  3. We tried to see Cut Copy a few years ago but lost the tickets. I think it’s only fair that I win these!

  4. “Saturdays” was one of my go-to anthems all through high school and college – perfect for driving with the windows down, dancing on the weekends, you name it! would love to dance to it live!!
