Well, sort of.

Thanks to our pals at POD Concerts, we have a pair of tickets to give away to see majestic German indietronica outfit The Notwist on Saturday night at Dublin’s Button Factory. You really want to see this show because (1) new album “The Devil, You + Me” is the business and (2) their Irish gig in 2002 was one of the finest shows I’ve ever seen.

And, just to make sure you can really have a big night out, we’ve also a pair of tickets for the Ed Banger do with DJ Mehdi and label boss Pedro Winter AKA Busy P at the same venue after The Notwist gig. You’ll even have enough time between shows to nip out to get a kebab or a sausage sandwich or some sushi (and no, we’re not paying for that). Judge’s decision is final and no reason will be given for that. No cash substitute given in lieu of the prize. Employees or those who earn a crust from the Irish Times, POD or the Button Factory are illegible (but Vodafone employees are OK because we’re nice like that).

Because none of you have a clue about ice-hockey, we’re not going down that route again when it comes to the question. To win, simply tell us in the comments below the name of your favourite German group and why they rock your world. Competition runs until 5.45pm today and I’ll pick the winner based on the usual grounds (ie mirth, wit, intelligence, amusement, enthusiasm etc)

To whet your appetite, here are The Notwist with “Chemicals” from their last album “Neon Golden”
