Future Nostalgia: Win a pair of tickets to CHAPPO @ Mercury Lounge this Saturday

If one were to give just a single listen to Brooklyn-based CHAPPO's extremely addictive "Petrified Sand," off their latest EP Plastique Universe II: Pisces Princess, you'd probably be able to pigeonhole their influences in an instant: MGMT, Neon Indian, even Neil Young. But forget for a second who they sound like on the first track... when you dig deeper into the EP and realize that their sound is ultimately defined by their lead singer's extremely dynamic voice--which delves into a Prince-like falsetto, contrasted by random bouts of Marc Bolan-esque growls--you're reminded of just how few bands these days are willing to take risks that many are afraid of.

Luckily for those of us in New York City, CHAPPO will be headlining Mercury Lounge tomorrow night (12/17), and we have a pair of tickets to give away so you can check the band out for yourself. To enter, all you have to do is send an email to with "CHAPPO" in the subject, and your first & last name in the body of the email. A winner will be selected at random by 4pm today and notified with details. Your email will not be used for anything other than entering the contest. Be sure to follow the band on their Twitter page to keep up to date on future shows, and below, check out their video for "Come Home," an undeniably catchy track off their last EP Plastique Universe. Good luck, and see you at the show!
