Win Tickets to See Wallpaper With AWOLNATION!

Posted By on Wed, Aug 3, 2011 at 2:00 PM

My favorite line written about Wallpaper, the 80's influenced party rap group coming to The Rock on August 8th, was in an profile in the SF Weekly: "If Justin Timberlake were broke and had a sense of humor, he'd probably sound like this." That describes the weird space Wallpaper occupies well: they make white-guy-rapping party anthems about sex and drinking that make fun of party anthems about sex and drinking. It's a little difficult at times to understand who the joke is on (although they do give a shout out to "the Tucson airport gift store closet", so add that pop culture reference to the Tucson yearbook) but in the end, the songs are just a lot of fun. Maybe there's some Inception-level irony going on here, but if you have some nostalgia for the music of Bell Biv Devoe and enjoy having fun, you'll love Wallpaper.

Wallpaper opens for AWOLNation at The Rock on Monday, August 8th and we have a pair of tickets to give away. Just go to our contest entry form, give us the relevant info, we'll draw a name on Sunday and email the winner. Good luck!
