Must Sea to Sea Giveaway :: Recoil / Alan Wilder [of Depeche Mode]

Well, it must be Rocktober, because we already have another ticket giveaway happening.
And this one is crazy.
Win 2 tickets to see RECOIL: SELECTED : A Strange Hour with Alan Wilder (of Depeche Mode) w/special guest Architect at the Aladdin Theater, in Portland.
TELL US IN A COMMENT BELOW WHY YOU SHOULD WIN 2 TICKETS TO TONIGHT'S SHOW. WINNER WILL BE NOTIFIED THROUGH EMAIL BY 6PM THIS EVENING.

Recoil was born in 1986 as a two-track experimental EP, and was followed by an album Hydrology in 1988. The project, started by Depeche Mode's Alan Wilder, quickly grew to become one of the most pioneering projects to emerge into the world of sampling technology.

Soon after recording the most successful Depeche Mode album to date - ‘Violator’ - he returned to the Recoil project for his next album,‘Bloodline, in 1991. Guest vocalists were recruited, helping to produce an album that demonstrated his ability to concoct slow-burning soundscapes drenched in drowsy paranoia. 
Long story short, Recoil put out two more albums throughout the years, gaining accolades worldwide and gleaning from a diverse catalog of guests. Alan is on a special tour right now with his newest album, Selected, which is a compilation of his favorite Recoil songs, arranged to provide a complete listening experience. The tour ncludes Europe, South America, and selected parts of the U.S.  and he is with us tonight, first at the SW 9th Ave Jackpot Records for a special in-store meet & greet event from 5-6PM. Then head to the Aladdin to see the show. 
Here's one of our favorites,  from the 2000 album Liquid, featuring the 1940's Gospel crooners The Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet.
Warning: This video is full of creepy things. Enjoy.
