Win FREE TIX to Man Man @ Valentine’s on Saturday!

Since the release of their debut album, “The Man in a Blue Turban With a Face” in 2004, the Philadelphia-based rock experimentalists Man Man have drawn comparisons to a wide array of forward-thinking avant rocksters, including Captain Beefheart, Mr. Bungle, Tom Waits, the Mars Volta and Frank Zappa.

They’ve toured with the likes of Modest Mouse, Yeasayer and Tim Fite. Their music has been featured on “Weeds” and Nike commercials. And they’ve dazzled critics at such high-profile fests as Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, All Tomorrow’s Parties and Voodoo Experience.

But led by keyboardist-vocalist-lyricist Honus Honus, the band has steadfastly cut its own unique path through the contemporary musical landscape. Their latest album is “Life Fantastic” on Anti- Records.

On Saturday night, Man Man will make their Nippertown debut at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany, presented by WCDB-FM. Raleigh Moncrief opens the show at 8pm. Doors open at 7:30pm. Tix are $13 in advance; $15 at the door.

BUT WAIT… Have we got a deal for you! We’re giving away a pair of FREE TIX to the show to a lucky Nippertown reader! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. The winner will be selected at random and notified on Saturday. Enter today! Good luck! Congratulations to the winner, who has been notified by email.
