Hands up who wants to go to see Fleet Foxes and Beach House when they play Dublin this coming Saturday night?

Thanks to our pals at Aiken Promotions, I have a pair of tickets to give away to go see this fantastic double bill with the wonderful Foxes and the excellent Beach House at Whelan’s on Saturday. The show is nearly sold-out – it will probably sell out after people read the 5 out of 5 review for the Fleet Foxes debut album in tomorrow’s Ticket, dontchaknow – and you really will want to be there so you can tell your kids and grandkids “I was there”.

Seeing as you lot know nothing about ice-hockey (but, hey, it turns out that there is another Detroit Red Wings fan writing for the paper) and I’m blanking Euro 2008 because I ended up with Greece and Sweden in a dodgy rigged sweepstakes, it’s going to be an easy-peasy music-related question.

Fleet Foxes hail from Seattle. Name your favourite band or musician from Seattle and tell us why they rule.

As always, the judge’s decision is final (that’s me, by the way) and I’m looking for wit, sarcasm, enthusiasm, eccentricity, thinking outside the box, a couple of days off and a toasted club sandwich on brown bread from Fallon & Byrne’s, but you can’t always get what you want. Competition runs until sundown today and I’ll announce the winner tomorrow morning.

If you haven’t done so already, download “White Winter Hymnal” by Fleet Foxes here and get humming.

And big thanks to Padraic for pointing me towards this video of Fleet Foxes live in London last night
