The next round of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds reissues is set for release on May 17th. Four classic mid-period albums will be unveiled in deluxe CD/DVD format with audio and video extras in addition to 5.1 surround sound. Included in the series are the manic and doleful Let Love In (1994), the twisted and darkly humorous Murder Ballads (1996), the heartbreakingly gorgeous The Boatman’s Call (1997) and group’s last great triumph No More Shall We Part (2001).
All four of the albums in this installment include the original stereo album remastered on CD in addition to a DVD with the album in 5.1 surround sound, which also contains b-sides, promo videos and a short film about the record.
For a chance to win all four of these indispensible collectors edition rereleases, send an email to tig at threeimaginarygirls.com with "Nick Cave Reissues" in the subject line by noon on May 19, 2011.
Visit the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds website for more information, including full track listings and details about the DVD extras.
Three Imaginary Girls is excited to present a very special GET TOGETHER to have a sneak listen to the brand new NOT YET RELEASED album from the New Pornographers on Friday, April 23 at Neptune Coffee (at 8415 Greenwood Ave N.) from 6p-7:30p. The evening is free.
Besides getting to hear the newest release by the critically-acclaimed New Pornographers in its entirety well before the release date (which is May 4 on Matador Records), this happiest of hour event will have 21+ drink specials (thanks PBR!) and a bucket of amazing giveaways such as pair of one-day tickets to Sasquatch for Monday 5/31 (the day the New Pornographers will take the stage) and various New Pornographers objects like posters, pretty pretty vinyl and the like.
Alrighty, Whip It! Fans - we've got a cute little prize pack ready to go home with someone worthy. Two wristbands + 8 pins featuring the "Hurl Scouts" from the film. How do *I* get a chance to win, you might ask? It's easy!
Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Bloody Holly" by 3pm, this Friday (10/9), and we'll notify the winner, ask for your address and MAIL them to you. Awesome, non?
FYI: Bloody Holly is played by my absolute favorite stuntwoman and is the object of a spectacularly ridiculous crush: Zoe Bell. If you don't know anything about Zoe, go find out. NOW. IN fact, whoever wins - if you wanna give me the Bloody Holly pin, I'll totally take it.
The nice folks at Warner Elektra Atlantic/WMG have given us two Inglourious Basterds one sheet posters signed by Sgt. Donny Donowitz: AKA Director, Actor, Writer and Quentin Tarantino's BFF, Eli Roth. They look like the photo above - and his sig is located on the bat right near where it says "Eisenberg".
The only catch is that these suffered some damage in transit, so they're a little scuffed up and have a few tears. Still, they're genuine one sheets signed by Eli (his signature is not damaged), so they're pretty cool.
Want one? E-mail us at email@example.com for the chance to win one for free! Just put "Bludgeoned with a bat" in the subject line, and press send by Wednesday @5pm.
