Win Tickets To See Eels at The Roxy Tomorrow


Eels are one of our local music treasures. Originally from Virginia, but based in Silverlake for ages now, E, and whoever is working with him at any given moment, has turned out compelling pop/country records for over a decade now. The sixth and most recent of which, 2005’s Blinking Lights and Other Revelations, is a double LP masterpiece. The albums 33 tracks cut across a wide spectrum of song and lyric, lush, uplifting arrangements, as well as spare, raw downers. It will be interesting to see how he works these out live and mixes it in with the rest of his back catalog.

Eels are heading out on the road this summer, hitting the U.S. on the way to the festivals in Europe in the summer. To kick things off, they are playing 2 warm up shows at The Roxy this Thursday 5/25 and Friday, 5/26. Pre-teen (as in 10 & 12 year-old) indie pop sibling darlings Smoosh open the show. (!)

Courtesy of The Roxy, losanjealous has 4 pairs of tickets to give to readers to Thursday’s Eels show.
