Ticket Giveaway - Peter, Bjorn and John's 10th Birthday at Club Nokia

Although most of us were introduced to Peter, Bjorn and John's music from their catchy 2006 single "Young Folks", which happened to be the first track ever on our monthly mixtape series back in July 2006, the Swedish trio had already released two prior full-lengths at that point and had their first rehearsal back on November 21st, 1999.

This Saturday, they will round out a recently announced "Surprise Birthday Tour"on their actual 10th birthday as a band at LA's very own Club Nokia with their favorite Swedish singer El Perro Del Mar and LIGHTS ON, the San Diego band we championed on our Winter '09 Collection.

We are giving away a pair of tickets for this Saturday's show, open to all ages. To win, you need to be a current or new member of our FoundTrack Facebook fan page and tell us what your favorite song featuring whistling is (with the exception of "Young Folks" of course.) Just leave your entry on our wall or send us a message. The winner/song will be announced on Friday via the FoundTrack Facebook/Twitter pages and will get a shout out on our next podcast. You will be on the PB&J guestlist +1.

In case you miss out on the giveaway, tix are still available for purchase for the last three dates of the tour and they are also giving away tix on the PB&J twitter (just gave away 2 tix for their SD show for the first person to bust a twitpic of their arse). Each show in this special engagement series will feature one or several secret special surprise guests including dancers, singers, rappers, folkrock artists, jazz musicians, celebrities, stand-up comedians, magicians, etc... They had Spank Rock, Amanda Blank and others at their philly show...The band will play some rare old/brand new or never-before-heard songs with an amazing birthday light show from the award-winning light technician Ed Warren. There will be a whistling contest where the winners get to be onstage performing "Young Folks" with the band. Special Peter Bjorn and John merch items will be given away for free after the show and this will also be the last tour PB&J will make before going into the studio, so if you can't wait until 2011 then don't miss the party.

Upcoming Tour Dates:
11/19 @ Great American Music Hall - San Francisco, CA
11/20 @ Great American Music Hall - San Francisco, CA
11/21 @ Club Nokia - Los Angeles, CA (Actual 10-yr Birthday)
