I feel like I've listened to a lot of music this year, but there are a few albums that I've listened to over and over: Random Access Memories, Bankrupt! by Phoenix (partially because my kids are fans), Disclosure's Settle and Foals' Holy Fire. Phoenix were already in town pre-Coachella, Disclosure and Daft Punk aren't likely coming anytime soon, so I'm incredibly excited that the other band making up my obsessive playlist is coming to town on August 7.
Clearly, based on my personal preferences, I believe you should have purchased tickets to see Foals immediately when they went on sale in May, but perhaps you haven't quite been convinced.
You could be in luck, because thanks to the Rialto and Warner Music, we have two Foals prize packs to give away.
The prize pack includes tickets to the Foals show at the Rialto, a signed poster, a copy of the album and a few other band-related trinkets. You can enter to win at our Free Stuff page. One entry per person, etc. etc.
We'll draw two winners after the contest closes Sunday, August 4 at midnight and inform them via email on Monday, August 5. Good luck and I'll see you at the show!
