Drop Nineteens are a Boston-based indie rock band, one of a few US-based bands who styled themselves on England’s distinctive shoegazing sound, taking inspiration from bands such as Ride and Lush.

In 2023, Drop Nineteens returned with their first new album in 30 years — Hard Light (released via Wharf Cat). And now they perform at The Atlantis in DC on Wednesday, April 17.

You can win a pair of tickets to go to the show as well as a signed vinyl record of Hard Light by Drop Nineteens.

Much like the Pixies before them, Drop Nineteens were more widely acknowledged in the UK, where the then-unsigned Drop Nineteens first gained attention with two 8-track demos.

Signing to Caroline Records (home to The Smashing Pumpkins, Hole), but with their records released on Hut in the UK, Drop Nineteens immediately garnered college radio airplay in the US with their 1992 debut album, Delaware. Formed by Greg Ackell (vocals, guitar), Steve Zimmerman (bass), Chris Roof (drums), Motohiro Yasue (guitar), and Paula Kelley (vocals, guitar), the band made three music videos that were prominently played on MTV.

Here is one of those videos, “Kick the Tragedy,” from their first album, Delaware.
