UK trip hop trio Morcheeba are always at the top of their game, with genre-refining albums. But in 2014, Skye Edwards and Ross Godfrey were touring without Ross’ brother Paul when they were inspired to bring more live intensity to their music.

Hence, Skye & Ross spun off into a side project, called Skye & Ross, and they are grooving back into our lives with a debut album, SKYE | ROSS, on Sept. 2. As Ross said, “What Skye and I do naturally when you ask us to make music together, and yet not necessarily a continuation of what we’d been doing with Morcheeba. It therefore felt only right to give it a new identity.”

You can hear for yourself! Listen to the official audio of first single “Light of Gold” from Skye and Ross on YouTube:

The band will continue to make albums as Morcheeba, Ross reported, but meanwhile Skye & Ross from Morcheeba have launched a tour in support of their new project, and they visit the 9:30 Club on Thursday, August 25. Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets so that you can check them out firsthand! To win, simply leave a comment on this blog. You can leave any comment, but how about tell us your favorite Morcheeba song?

Ticket Giveaway: David Cross: Making America Great Again! @ Warner Theatre, 2/19/16

You might know him as America’s most clueless psychiatrist — Tobias Fünke on Arrested Development, a man who thought it was a good idea to call attention to his proficiency as an analyst AND a therapist by combining the two as “analrapist.”

Of course, Tobias is portrayed by the prolific David Cross, who also makes lots of sketches in Mr. Show and stars in other situational comedies like “Todd Margaret.” One thing he has *not* done much of in recent years is tour with a stand-up routine. But starting this week in California, he’s making it right.

Last night, David Cross launched his first stand-up tour in six years -— a six-month international tour, titled “Making America Great Again!” And it arrives in DC in a few short weeks for two shows at the Warner Theatre on Friday, Feb. 19.

Watch David talk about his show “Todd Margaret” and going on tour again in an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Jan. 12, 2016:

His early DC show is sold out, but you can win a pair of tickets to see the late show (showtime at 10:30pm on Feb. 19)! For your chance to win these tickets, simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between now and 5pm on Friday, Jan. 29. Feel free to leave any comment, but perhaps share your favorite movie, show, or joke by David Cross! One entry per email address, please. Tickets for this show are also available through Live Nation.

For the rules of this giveaway…

Comments will close on Friday, Jan. 29 at 5pm and we will randomly select a winner. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours, or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

Tickets will be available to the winner at the Warner Theatre box office on the night of the concert. The tickets must be claimed with a valid ID. The winner must be old enough to attend the specific concert or must have a parent’s permission to enter if he/she is under 18 years old.

Good luck!

Ticket Giveaway: Faith No More @ Merriweather Post Pavilion, 8/2/15

In May, Faith No More released their first studio album in 18 years — Sol Invictus. The reconstituted band is touring in support of that album with a stop at the Merriweather Post Pavilion on Sunday, August 2, and Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets to the show!

For your chance to win these tickets, simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address by 5pm on Friday, July 24. In your comment, share your favorite song by Faith No More! One entry per email address, please.

The San Francisco alt-metal band started work on the album after the successful tour, The Second Coming, which took them on the road for the first time in more than 10 years. Sol Invictus was recorded in an Oakland studio owned by Faith No More bassist Bill Gold and features the last lineup of the band including drummer Mike Bordin and keyboardist Roddy Bottum along with guitarist Jon Hudson and vocalist Mike Patton.

Watch Faith No More perform new song “Superhero” for the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show on July 12, 2015:

Bill Gould points to the self-produced sound of the new record as reflecting that of the band’s early days. “Hypnotic and gothic, we’re coming back to where we were with our first album,” he said in a press release, “Siouxsie and the Banshees, Roxy Music. Then Patton’s being Patton, crooning, screaming, with a bit of soul underneath it all. We’ve always taken strange influences and smashed them together.”

We ‘80s kids might best remember “We Care a Lot” but Faith No More really hit the alternative charts a little later in the late ’80s and early ’90s with hits like “Epic,” “Midlife Crisis,” and “A Small Victory.”

Comments will be closed at 5pm on Friday and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner. We will email you instructions on claiming your ticket.
