It seemed ages away when we first mentioned it only last month, but this year's iTunes Festival is now well under way. Koko has been rocking overtime under the deluge of gigs that span the entire month of July and feature over 60 bands. Tickets are free, but you have to win them from someone who's giving them away... like us! Thanks to Warp Records we have a pair of tickets to give away for tomorrow night's Jamie Lidell performance.
Fortunately our record collection is alphabetised rather than grouped by genre, because if it were Lidell's unique brand of electronic soul would somehow have to be filed between Otis Redding and Autechre. Rising French synth-pop star Yelle opens the night with her bubbly 21st century yé-yé. Both acts should prove to work quite well together and you'll undoubtedly leave prepared to greet Friday with a smile.
As the gig is tomorrow night, Thursday 10 July, you need to act fast: the competition closes at 10:00 a.m. Give us your name, email address and phone number using the form below and we'll contact the winner in the morning. Good luck!Image taken from blurasis' Flickr photostream under its Creative Commons licence.
