Ever since the first listen of The Blanket Rule EP, it's been hard not to obsess over London five piece Breton. In addition to their experimental sound, we learned that experiencing the band live is more than just checking out some great music, it's a performance deeply enriched in multimedia. The band is currently heading to SXSW to make the rounds to promote their upcoming album Other People's Problems, which is out on March 26th (April 3rd in the US) via FatCat. When the complete chaos that is SXSW is over, the band will be making their debut in NYC at Mercury Lounge on March 21st and we want you to be there!
If you live in the greater NYC area, are 21 or older, and want to catch some great music for free keep reading!
We have one pair of tickets to give away for their show on Wednesday, March the 21st at Mercury Lounge. It is a 21+ show so make sure you are old enough to enter. To have your entry qualify, simply leave us a comment on this post before Tuesday, March 20th at noon EDT Update (3/20): Wednesday, March 21st at 11am EDT. A winner will be chosen at random and notified shortly after so we can confirm your name for the guest list.
In case you need some convincing of their awesomeness or are new to Breton, you can grab The Blanket Rule EP for the actual retail price of $FREE.99. We also featured their dancetastic jam, "Sandpaper" on the very first Some Kind of Mixtape so you can have a listen to that as well. Or if you're more into experiencing a band through visuals, you can have a look at some of their music videos for songs from Other People's Problems like "Interference", "Edward The Confessor", or our personal favorite: "The Commission":
