After a long hiatus, Aussie duo An Horse are returning with their brand new album, Modern Air this Friday. We’ve heard several of the tracks, all just as convincing as when the band left us with Walls back in 2011. But, more importantly, the band return to Austin this Sunday at Barracuda, and seeing as it’s never easy to catch an Australian band in the States, you should jump at the chance to win free tickets! Plus, the group will be joined by local powerhouse, Lola Tried.
All you have to do to win two tickets is pick a number between 1-1000, leave it in the comments, or tweet it at us! The only hint I’m giving you is that it’s not my favorite number! You’ve got 48 hours! Go!

All you need to do is leave a comment with your favorite song. If your favorite song is my favorite song, you’ll win the pair of tickets! Contest ends at 10 AM day of the show!

They’re putting on an incredible dance party this Saturday night at Kingdom featuring Pat Mahoney as Museum of Love; he’s one of the founding members of LCD Soundsytem.

All you have to do is leave us a comment with your favorite new jam of 2014. We’ll close the contest Friday at midnight, then contact the winners. Show is at Red 7, and it starts at 9 PM.
