GOSSIP at Emo’s: Ticket and CD giveaway, plus show coverage

Howdy y’all!

Austin Eavesdropper is reporting live today from her bedroom, where she is sporting super-hawt chili pepper pajama pants. And you know what chili pepper pants mean, don’t you? PHOTO SHOOT!

This is what I do when I’m bored (and sick) at home. Trรจs sassy, non? My parents gave these to me for Christmas one year, and Autumn Equinox is sort of marked in our home by the donning of these pants.

Aren’t they hysterical?? You can’t really tell here, but they are elastic waist, poofy at the thighs and tapered at the ankles. Sort of like Hammer pants. I wear them relentlessly, and R. hates loves them.

Anyway, onto more important matters. I’ve got a super fun opportunity for anyone who’s interested, and considers him or herself something of a live music junkie.

Thursday night, GOSSIP is playing at Emo’s. Have you heard of Gossip?

Heavy Cross

I adore Beth Ditto and her killer pipes. Not to mention her killer make-up.

Gossip has been around for 10 years now, but like Phoenix and other indie rock bands making their way around the blogosphere, it’s only been relatively recently that they’ve ascended to full-scale fame. However, between Ditto’s naked splash on the cover of more than one magazine, her lesbian and feminist following / platform, and the band’s delicious, just-released Music for Men album (sample it here – love the big bass on “Dimestore Diamond”), I suspect we’ll be hearing lots more from this post-punk outfit. Austinites especially, since they’re rolling into town as we speak!

Now for the fun stuff. I’ve got ONE ticket to give away, along with a CD/vinyl of Music for Men – your choosing on the format. To enter though, you have to be willing to do one thing:


We’ll post your review, along with pics you take.

Any closet music writers and live show devotees – are you interested? If so, enter your name in the comment section below. This is a SHORT ticket giveaway, meaning I’ll select a winner by 1pm tomorrow (Wednesday).

Austin Eavesdropper has been looking for just such a live music collaborator, so I can’t wait to see who enters!
