Contest: Win Tickets to See Man Man on May 11

Photo credit: Mike Persico

Full album stream: Man Man – Life Fantastic
MP3: Man Man – “The Ballad of Butter Beans” (from 2008’s Rabbit Habits)

If Tom Waits joined a troupe of deranged carnies during the end of days, it would probably sound a lot like Philly five-piece Man Man.

The O&B Best of 2008-ranked band has been blowing minds for years now, putting astounding musicianship and experimental songwriting into a blender and hitting “liquify.” Man Man haven’t been to San Diego in a while, but even if they came to town every week, we’d still go to every show.

Fortunately for us, lead singer Honus Honus and his band of merry mischief-makers are currently touring to support their upcoming album Life Fantastic (which is, as the title says, fantastic.)

If the above full-album stream has you excited to see Man Man live, you’re in luck, because we’re giving away two tickets to the band’s May 11 Casbah show. To enter the contest, please comment below and include your email address in the form (your email won’t be visible to the public). The winner will be chosen at random on May 9, 2011.
