Win Tickets To See The Ditty Bops With Jesca Hoop @ The Henry Fonda

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

The Ditty Bops, Abby DeWald and Amanda Barrett, are like perfectly precious paperdolls, and the music they make is nothing short of fresh baked gingerbread. Their fanciful folk harmonies, old fashioned, ragtime-esque melodies, and penchant for the playful are the hallmarks of this utterly unique duo of doe-eyed beauties. With snazzy instrumentation (expect to see a mandolin and a dulcimer), and occasional cabaret moments, these ladies could charm the pants off a prude.

In concert, they have been known to put on a whimsical and captivating, silhouette, puppet show. To promote the release of their second record, Moon Over The Freeway (Warner Bros.), they went on a cross-country bicycle tour. When she was sixteen, one of them learned to eat fire. I’m pretty sure these girls are geniuses.

Much to our delight, in what can only be described as a windfall of tickets from Goldenvoice, we are happy to offer 2 pairs of tickets to you, our live television audience. Register to comment, and comment to win. Leave a message after the jump and tell us what you’re up to this weekend.
