free tickets to Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson

By Jim Stanford on August 25, 2011


After a summer of jam bands, bluegrass, funk, rock and even a hippie circus, it’s time for a night of hip-hop.

Courtesy of Teton Artlab, we’re giving away two pairs of tickets to Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson on Friday at Q Roadhouse. In the comments below, say you’re in or any variation thereof, and at 3 p.m. Friday two winners will be chosen by random drawing. Each winner will receive two tickets ($44 value). Valid email address or full name must be provided.

Aesop Rock rhymed to prominence in the late 1990s and scored a big hit with the song “Daylight” from the 2001 album Labor Days. The Long Island native is known for cryptic lyrics; in the video above, the title track to his 2007 album None Shall Pass, he references the Snake River Canyon (probably in Idaho).

Kimya Dawson is a freak folkie best known as half of the duo The Moldy Peaches. The show will feature an acoustic set by her, an acoustic set by her and Aesop Rock, and a full rap set by Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz. The three play in the band Hail Mary Mallon and also have been collaborating with Dawson. Expect to see all four together at some point.

Tickets are available at Q and online via Teton Artlab.
