TVD Ticket and Vinyl Giveaway! Trashcan Sinatras, Monday (6/14) at the Rock and Roll Hotel

Time was when alongside, say...Prefab Sprout, The Blue Nile, Danny Wilson, even Aztec Camera, the Trashcan Sinatras formed part of a blissful playlist with their debut 'Cake' whose cassette copy was worn down to a wobbly, stringy mess with constant overplaying.

The difference between the Sinatras and the other aforementioned bands is that they're quite happily still at it...both recording and touring with a tour stop this coming Monday, June 14th at the Rock and Roll Hotel right here in our backyard in support of their latest release, the wonderful "In The Music."

And yes, we have a pair of tickets to join us front and center on Monday night—but that ain't all as they say. In a nod to our over-the-top vinyl leanings, the band's pulled two mega-rare 7"s from their own archives to offer on the blog in tandem with the ticket giveaway. (And they sent scans!)

They are:

...a three-track acoustic sessions 7" from 2001,

...and a promo copy of their 7" single, "Snow."

And of course we're tossing in a copy of the latest release (which has yet to see a vinyl pressing, but we're really hoping it happens over here.)

One winner will receive all of the above mega-rare swag and the pair of tickets to the show and we'll have three runners up for copies of the new release on CD.

How do you win? Plead your case in the comments to this post and the most compelling of you wins the grand prize. We're choosing our winners by noon on Monday—and remember to leave us contact info!
