Week 8 Contest Winners!
Congrats to the Summer Music Junkie Contest Week 8 winners!
Here’s what some of our winners had to say about their favorite show of the week:
My favorite show last week was at Electric Zoo. It was seeing The Glitch Mob. Their set was so hard and electric it had everyone going nuts. From a DJ crew to a live electronic band I think these guys are doing something that most artists are not doing yet. They were nice enough to hang out afterwards and hand out cd’s and take pics with the fans.
Invited by a friend, I didn’t know what to expect before the Zach Williams show at Bowery Ballroom on Thursday 9/2/10. I hadn’t heard of him before, and I expected that he’d have a generic sound like many other self-named, acoustic, singer-songwriter acts. He set himself apart and certainly surprised me with his impressive vocal range, heartfelt lyrics, and talented backing band (especially the female backing vocalist!). The venue was filled with an audience who danced and echoed his lyrics; truly demonstrating the connection he had with them. When I got home later that night, I immediately bought his latest album, Story Time. The songs sound just as good recorded and I can’t wait to see him play in the city again.
This marks the end of the Summer Music Junkie Contest! We’ve had a great summer with amazing shows and prizes. Thanks to everyone who participated, you guys rock! We will soon be announcing the lucky person who has been crowned Summer Music Junkie, so stay tuned!
