[Win This!] : Two Tickets to see Sigur Rós at Madison Square Garden

Quite a few years back, wanderlust and general distaste for responsibility found me traipsing through Iceland. I had a great time exploring the island nation, its rugged coastline, seemingly eternal darkness (winter in Iceland is not for the seasonally affected) and Reykjavík’s too cool for words clubs (as long as one remembered not to show up before midnight).

Years later, the thing I remember most about my Icelandic pilgrimage is an incident involving the Blue Lagoon, a flybussen full of German tourists and a rented Speedo.

Now the other thing I remember well (and the one that will not haunt me upon my deathbed) was discovering Sigur Rós. And it wasn’t a subtle thing. I literally saw the cover image of Ágætis Byrjun everywhere. Everywhere. And so finally my curiosity got the best of me, and I’ve been a fan ever since.

Seeing Sigur Rós live is difficult to describe. Actually, it’s pert near impossible. And that’s where we come in. Sigur Rós just so happens to be hovering over North America for the next couple weeks in support of their latest, Valtari. See what I’m getting at here?

MOKB/Sigur Rós at Madison Square Garden Giveaway: Just in time for Spring, one fortunate MOKB reader is going to score two (2) tickets to see Sigur Rós performing at the world’s most famous arena. Just the tickets mind you, but how cool is that? Airfare is out of the question. Whatta we look like, Pitchfork? The winner will be able to pick up his/her spoils in advance at the Bowery Presents office. To get yer butt in the running, click the Comment link and enter your name and email address. But do it by Friday, March 22nd. All entrants will be tossed in a hat and the winner will be chosen at random. Oh, and don’t forget to follow MOKB on Facebook and Twitter!
