We’re Giving Away Tickets to See Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds are hitting the road next summer to continue to support their stellar 2013 album Push the Sky Away with 18 dates stretching across North America, starting in Louisville, KY on June 16 and ending in Toronto on July 13. If you’re like us, you’re still kicking yourself for not catching the Bad Seeds on their previous sold-out jaunt through the US. We’re damned if we’re going to miss them this time around and we don’t want you to miss them either. To help you out, we’re giving away five pairs of tickets that can be used for any of these selected dates.
One of our favorite things about Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, besides their untamed and intense live shows, is their amazing album covers. From Nick’s icy mug gracing the cover of The Boatman’s Call to the neon marquee lights on Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, each album brings a perfect visual companion to the darkly beautiful music of the Bad Seeds. To win a pair of tickets, we want you to create your own version of any one of the band’s great album covers and submit that image to @VICE as a twitpic via Twitter. Make sure to include the hashtag #COVERNICKCAVE, or else we might miss it. The contest starts now and we’ll be accepting pictures until midnight on Sunday, January 12. On Monday, January 20, we’ll announce the winners right here on VICE.com and re-post many of the awesome, arty cover reinterpretations. Good luck!
