Twin Shadow

UPDATE: Twin Shadow’s tour bus was in an accident on 4/17, so all of his tour dates scheduled for April 21 through May 22nd are being postponed. Once his date at The Fonda is rescheduled, we’ll be sure to let you know and continue the ticket giveaway.

Twin Shadow, AKA George Lewis Jr., could be described as a Renaissance man of music, not simply because he has produced, written, and recorded many of his own tracks, but because his repertoire of hypnotizing and synth-fueled tunes echoes an endless array of genres and movements.

Ratatat

Congratulations to our winners Garrett Callender and Rachel Mohr, and a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered!

Brooklyn duo Ratatat has been making waves in the music scene for some time now for their vocal-free electronic music. Their first album was recorded entirely at home on a laptop over ten years ago, and since then, Evan Mast and Mike Stroud have gone on to release four full-length albums. Ratatat is no stranger to large audiences, having played at massive festivals around America, so seeing these guys at the Fox Theater in Pomona for a rare SoCal show on April 15th would be quite the special treat.
