Sunday night (3/4) at Bowery Ballroom is the NYC debut of Swedish duo Korallreven, one half of which is The Radio Dept.'s Daniel Tjäder. I like their debut album a lot, all lush, synth-driven dream pop but, like a lot of music like this, I wonder how they're going to make it an interesting concert experience. I envision two guys behind laptops and keyboards bobbing their heads and singing, with some projections and hopefully smoke machines. Maybe they could move the downstairs couches to the main room? Maybe I'm wrong. We'll see. I'm sure it will sound great in any case. If you haven't heard them yet, you can download "Sa Sa Samoa" in regular and remixed form at the top of this post and watch the video at the bottom of this post. Also playing: Lemonade and Young Magic.

OK, maybe that wasn't the hardest sell, but nonetheless, tickets are still on sale, AND we have a few pairs to give away. Contest details, and all dates, including a free BrooklynVegan day party at Hotel Vegas at SXSW this year, below...


For a chance at winning a pair of tickets to see Korallreven at Ballroom: either tweet something that includes both @BrooklynVegan AND "Korallreven at Bowery Ballroom" in the tweet, or send an email to BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM with the subject line "Korallreven". Include your first and last name in the email. We'll pick winners at random and contact them with more details. If you enter by email, it will not be shared with anyone else. Good luck!
