Win Tix To See Franz Ferdinand + Sparks @ E. F.



What happens when you combine smarty/dancey-pants Glaswegian art-punks Franz Ferdinand with arch, synth-y post-glam/post-New Wave/post-whatever Los Angeleno art-rockers Sparks? The not-very-imaginatively-named FFS, a once-secret long-running collaboration that’s resulted in the eponymously-titled debut FFS, released by the way-cool Domino label back in June. (Rule of thumb, if it’s on Domino it’s worth hearing.) What’s it sound like? Arch, dance-y, cerebral, post-glam, post-New Wave, post-whatever art-rock. If that’s your idea of a good time have we got a deal for you. FFS are currently on a tour for the album that brings them to the Electric Factory on Saturday and we have a couple pairs of tickets to give to some lucky-duck Phawker readers with a deep-well of trivial knowledge and a willingness to jump through our social media hoops. To qualify to win you need to A) be signed up to our mailing list (below right, beneath the masthead) which will give you early warning about must-read Phawker posts and early word on groovy concert/movie/misc-cool-event-you-definitely-want-to-attend ticket giveaways B) and follow on us Twitter C) send an email to telling us you have accomplished both A & B along with the answer to the following FFS-related trivia question: Who was the real Franz Ferdinand? Please include your full name and a mobile number for confirmation. Good luck and godspeed.
