Those lovely people at the Rotondes have once again splashed out and provided Delano with tickets to give away to our readers; this time for Shabazz Palaces and Nots.
Rotondes this week welcome the ultra-cool hip-hop experimentalists Shabazz Palaces (pictured) to the stage of The Klub. Led by rapper Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler (aka Palaceer Lazaro), formerly of Digable Planets--remember 1993’s ‘Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)’?--Shabazz Palaces also features Tendai “Baba” Maraire, who provides what Pitchfork calls “intricate, dreamy soundscapes”.
The group’s latest album, “Lese Majesty” is divided into seven suites with a subtle science fiction theme. That may sound pretentious, but it is actually a positive and progressive approach to advancing hip-hop’s creativity.
We also have tickets to give away to the Nots show on 27 November. The all girl band, formed around Natalie Hoffmann on guitar and Charlotte Watson on drums, released its debut album “We Are Nots” last year. The record is, says Pitchfork, “fueled by its deep well of anger and frustration.” The band describes its sound as "weird punk”, which is an apt enough label enough for us.
To enter the draw to win a pair of tickets for either--or both--shows, simply send an email to [email protected] marking the subject field “Rotondes-Shabazz Palaces” or “Rotondes-Nots” as appropriate.
If you are entering both draws, please send separate emails.
Deadline of Shabazz Palaces is Thursday 19 November at 9am. Winners will be notified that morning, so please make sure you have access to your email during the day.
The deadline for Nots is Wednesday 25 November at 9am.
