Som Records and TVD have conspired to shake you from your post-Thanksgiving tryptofanatical malaise with a contest sure to get you off of your couch Saturday night.
Som and TVD welcome Peasant to the Velvet Lounge for the third date on his 3-week journey across the Northeast which heralds the release of his debut “On The Ground” which arrives with some help from Team Love (yes, Conor Oberst’s label). He's played shows with Delta Spirit, Takka Takka, Bodies Of Water and most recently at the Brooklyn Vegan CMJ party (The Muslims, Friendly Fires, Crystal Antlers, Sebastian Grainger, Japanese Motors).
Peasant has been the recipient of 6 posts on Brooklyn Vegan within 2 months, a feature in Magnet Magazine, a Food Network video feature, a Spin.com video feature, and a featured slot at WXPN's World Cafe Live, not to mention he also just finished up a session at Daytrotter and is on his way over to Cincinnati shortly for a WOXY session and a LaundroMatinee (My Old Kentucky Blog) Session. In addition, he was recently featured on the season premier of Fox's "Bones" television show.
“DeRose’s vocals float above acoustic guitar melodies, evoking the lyrical eloquence and delicate arrangements of Rogue Wave and the late Elliott Smith.” - Magnet Magazine
“It's a good feeling to come across an artist you instantly like, sort of by accident. That happened to me with Peasant a few weeks ago when I randomly selected his CD 'On The Ground'…” - Brooklyn Vegan
"...we actually enjoy this album more than most of the stuff we've heard by [Elliot] Smith. Every one of the thirteen tracks is lovely, melodic, catchy, and deeply felt." - Phillyist
But enough of the glowing quotes you're saying, TVD whatcha' got in this Ticket Giveaway? Well, in addition to a pair of tickets, the one winner will receive an autographed CD. (Wha, need more?) Neal's kicked in $30.00 of store credit over at Som Records to make this deal really special.
Let's hear from you in the comments and the whole post-turkey shebang is yours! We'll accept your well-phrased pleas for tickets until Friday (11/28) and kindly remember to leave us some contact info.
