[Denver Event Preview/Ticket Giveaway] Black Marble @ Lost Lake – 5/27

Chris Stewart’s darkly tinged avant-pop, lofi bedroom recording project turned Ghostly International staple, Black Marble, has always managed to stir within a slew of our writers some of the most emotive connections to music we’ve formed in years. Last October, Stewart put out a second long-player under the Black Marble moniker, It’s Immaterial (check out our coverage & video for “Woods” here), which followed highly acclaimed debut full-length A Different Arrangement; while now, Black Marble find themselves finally embarking on It’s Immaterial‘s accompanying North American tour. With an expansive run of dates which extend through July, there will be plenty of chances to catch Black Marble in the coming months.

This Saturday, May 27th, The Music Ninja is delighted and excited to present Black Marble at one of Denver’s most intimate indie venues, Lost Lake Lounge, along with Draa and Voight for what will be top-to-bottom an excellently curated night of music. As always, we want to pack the venue with some fellow Music Ninjas, which is why we will be giving away a pair of tickets in utter anticipation. As always, entering our contest is as simple as ever.

[Denver Event Preview/Ticket Giveaway] TMN Presents: Fenech-Soler @ Lost Lake – 5/16

The U.K. based duo consisting of brothers Ross and Ben Duffy, Fenech-Soler, have supplied our highly sensitive Ninja ears with some of the most danceable, tasteful, and wistful electro-pop for years. First appearing on our hallowed pages all the way back in 2009, Fenech-Soler have fashioned an even tighter grasp on their cheery synth-pop iterations in the time since. This year, the pair have already unveiled two full releases in the form of their LP Zilla, and the appropriately titled cover EP The Covers; which both sound of a band confidently coming to terms with their sound while steadily refining it. Loaded with personality and excellent fits of experimentation, their latest releases have been straightforward, unashamed pop music fusing indie sensibilities with grandiose synths and razor-sharp electronic production that we know will play wonderfully in a live scenario. Yet another reason we are thrilled to be presenting their next live date in beautiful Denver, CO at Lost Lake Lounge.

Of course we had to get our Ninja faithful involved as well, so we’re giving away a pair of tickets rather simply and painlessly! As always, entering is beyond simple (click on this post header if you’re still on the TMN front page), just follow our two easy steps below, and for those who would rather guarantee their entry into the show, tickets can be purchased here as well. Best of luck Ninjas!

[Denver Event Preview/Ticket Giveaway] TMN Presents: Great Good Fine OK @ Larimer Lounge – 1/25

Brooklyn based electronic-pop auteurs Jon Sandler & Luke Moellman -better known as Great Good Fine OK -first landed themselves amongst the heaps of fine music here at TMN all the way back in 2013, and have found themselves supplying our listeners time and time again with a lush brand of heartfelt, synth-driven ditties in the years since. Outside of these Ninja confines, the duo have found themselves racking up countless moments of acclaim; from music video premieres on MTV, features in Billboard, and appearances at some of the world’s most notable festivals, GGFO have established themselves as a forceful live act blessed with the ability to fill eager rooms wherever their sound careens through a loaded set of live monitors.

Great Good Fine OK find themselves marching into 2017 armed with a new EP, III , (stream “Take It Or Leave It” & “Always” from III below) which lead vocalist/songwriter Jon Sandler noted as housing “…some of the best songs we’ve ever written…”, a hefty upcoming North American tour, and a more polished, mature aesthetic. On the heels of all that hype, we’re feeling like some rather eager beavers to be presenting their Denver stop on January 25th at the Larimer Lounge, and we wanted to get our readers equally as excited by giving away a couple pairs of tickets. Entering our contest is as always, beyond easy. Just “like” The Music Ninja on FB, click on this post header if you’re still on the TMN front page, then comment below with your favorite Great Good Fine OK song, and boom, that’s it! (We even provided a few below if you need!) And of course, we want as many people as possible to come dance with us, so for our friends looking to secure their spot, advance tickets can be purchased here.

There are a few rules, of course:
– The event is 16+ Be sure to tell all of your friends to increase chance of winning!

[Giveaway] Fox Stevenson Offers Up VIP Service At Webster Hall

’Fox Stevenson & Curbi – Hoohah (VIP Edit)’

Webster Hall is one of the top venues in the United States. It would make sense that some of the world’s most creative artists would pass through. This happens all the time, but not always are you going to get the chance to see Feint and Varien open for the headlining Fox Stevenson. These three heavy hitters are taking over New York’s hot stop and they’re offering you the chance to get in free.

More than that, they’re offering to give a fan the chance to experience the show’s VIP service, which will include an artist panel, where you can ask the artists whatever questions your mind can muster, as well as a dinner. If you are buying tickets to the January 15th show, it is good to note that a ticket does not mean VIP; you’ll have to get both to get the full experience. The good thing is, this contest is for both!

Don’t miss out on this grand opportunity. Enter into the giveaway below while you enjoy Fox Stevenson’s “Hoohah” VIP that was released on Spinnin Records if you haven’t clicked play already. For more information surrounding the show, you can find what you need at the ticket page. If you’re more interested in finding out about the VIP service, you can do so at the campaign’s page, which includes some extra goodies. Most importantly, enter the contest!
