By now, you should already be well aware of the big Saturday night shindig up in Denton, Spune's 2k10 Winter Dance Party at Hailey's which will feature Neon Indian, Ishi, Phantastes (aka Lars Larsen), Vulgar Fashion, Florene, Survive, Peopleodian and Monastary. After all, it's already won our oh-so-coveted weekly Poster of the Week award and all, duh. And, yes, we here at DC9 are sponsoring it.
It's a lineup not all that different from the rousing, inspiring showcase of Neon Indian and Ishi held the Granada Theater in late December--only, well, this time it's more of an all-evening affair (see set times after the jump), starting shortly after 6 p.m. and running till 1:15 a.m. (or, were we bettin' fellows, till they have to shut the place down for closing time).
And though we've seen similar bills featuring the top acts on this bill before (which, to be fair, has been about as obvious a bill pairing as we've seen in some time), there's no reason to believe this one won't be just as fun.
So it's with great pleasure then that we've got two pairs of tickets to this show to offer up to a couple of lucky DC9 readers. Want one of the pairs? Be one of the first two people to shoot me an email with the words "Dance, Dance Revolution" in the subject line. Do that, and, hey now, you're in like Flynn. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
