We Have A Contest - Grand Ole Party

UPDATED: We have a winner!!! Congratulations Alex K from NJ! We hope you enjoy the album as much as we did. There are many reasons to love San Diego. The sun. The beach. The zoo. Vito. And now....Grand Ole Party (which we have a contest for...check out the end of the post). This band has the spirit and energy of classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and Jefferson Airplane, yet being a three piece outfit, their sound is crisper and cleaner. There's no effects and psychedelic swirlings spoiling the honest to goodness rock being produced. The stand out is Kristin Gundred's voice. It drives the songs and drums up distant memories of Janis Joplin. Except Joplin didn't play drums. There's something about the singer/drummer combo that is just...cool. They've already played with a host of awesome acts like Rilo Kiley, Vampire Weekend (who?), and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They'll also be playing the upcoming SXSW then touring with Rogue Wave in April. They stop off on that tour to the First Unitarian Church In Philly on April 15th and the 9:30 Club in DC on April 16th. Their debut album Humanimals was just released on DH Records earlier in February. You might want to go grab yourself a copy...or...oh yeah...THERE'S A SWEET CONTEST RIGHT HERE ON THIS BLOG FOR A T-SHIRT AND CD!!! Just leave your email in the comments and by the end of the week we'll select a random winner. So if you like it, do yourself a favor and throw your name into the proverbial hat. Hooray!
