One of our favorite hobbies here at The Deli is to brag about how much earlier we covered and/or booked some local bands that were later blessed by international recognition... Here we go, then: we first covered Au Revoir Simone in 2005 - the band also played a Deli show at quaint and cozy Pete's Candy's Store in Brooklyn. They were a brand new band at the time... we knew they were good, but we weren't expecting that they would sell out arenas in Japan and China within a few years...
The three charming ladies will be back in their hometown in early 2010 for a show at Highline Ballroom on Thursday January 7. We have a bunch of free tickets available for readers: to enter the contest send us a 3 to 5 word description (or, better yet - make a Haiku) about the music of your favorite 3-girl-armed-with-synths band to this address: info [at] thedelimagazine.com. The 2 best entries will win 2 tickets to the show.
Submission Deadline December 11. Good luck!
