TICKET GIVEAWAY: Alvvays at Gasa Gasa



Jangly indie-pop band Alvvays takes the stage at Gasa Gasa next Tuesday and we have two pairs of tickets to give away!  For a chance to win, follow Nola Vie on Twitter (@nolavie) and tweet “I want to see @alvvaysband @GasaGasaNOLA courtesy of @nolavie!.” You can also enter via Facebook (by sharing the giveaway on your timeline and tagging NolaVie) and/or Instagram (by following NolaVie, gramming a photo of  Alvvays and tagging NolaVie in your Instagram). The winners will be notified via direct message on Twitter by 11/17.

Alvvays' self-titled debut garnered universal critical acclaim upon its release this summer, with Rolling Stone awarding the album 4/5 stars and calling it "a sharply drawn indie-pop wonder, steeped in romance, wit and melody."  The band has been touring nonstop on the heels of that well-deserved attention, honing their sound into a smooth blend of 90s radio rock and classic surf pop.  The impeccable acoustics of Gasa Gasa will be a perfect setting to soak in their layered sound.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.  Doors at 8:00, show at 9:00.  Also on the bill are Absolutely Free and Yuppie Teeth.

Check out one of the best tracks from their album, "Archie Marry Me," below.
