Australia guitar pop combo Cloud Control have foolishly left the part of the world where it's summer right now to experience the polar vortex -- and to play some North American shows, including one in NYC at Baby's All Right on Saturday (1/11) to which tickets are still available. Additionally, if you'd like to go to the NYC show for free, we've got a pair of tickets to give away. Details below.
They're also headlining Brooklyn Bowl on Sunday (1/12) which is part of the "It's a School Night Series." Avers and Arms also play, and that's free with RSVP.
In anticipation of their tour, Cloud Control put together a mixtape for us and with songs by Talking Heads, Modern Lovers, Yo La Tengo and more, it would definitely make for good road soundtracking on the drive between gigs. You can stream it below.
