[MP3] The Knocks – Modern Hearts feat. St. Lucia

I get a ton of stuff sent to me by 21st century master pop craft-smiths, The Knocks, most of which I never have a chance to listen to, never mind post. But the stuff I have posted in the past has never disappointed and this is no exception. Worth the click to play:

[CONTEST] Win Tickets to See the Legendary Shuggie Otis Live at The Phoenix in Toronto, April 14

[NOTE: contest is DONE! Go to @Stellaskid on twitter to see the winner announcement. Thanks to all who entered and check back at the Kitchen for more contests coming soon!]

Don’t know the name? GET FAMILIAR!!!! Trust me, you don’t want to miss this very, very special show this coming weekend here in Toronto.

Shuggie is the son of blues legend, Johnny Otis; wrote the classic “Strawberry Letter 23″, better known by most via the Brothers Johnson version, and famously turned down an offer to join the Rolling Stones. Not up him musically? Hit the jump to listen to his Inspiration Information album and hear where I believe artists like Miguel and Pharrell got their creative ‘inspiration’ from.

And now, you’re wondering, “How do I win the tickets?”, right? Read on…

Just follow me on twitter (so I can DM you in the event that you win) and then tweet: “@Stellaskid: I wanna win tickets to see @ShuggieOtis April 14 at The Phoenix in Toronto presented by @TheUnionEast” [note: the quotation marks not necessary when you send your tweet]

The contest will end at 12 noon EST on April 12 and the winner will be announced via twitter. Thanks to the homie, Ramos and Union Events for supplying the tickets for this very special contest.

Get more details on the show via Facebook HERE. Tickets are on sale for $39.50 (plus S/C) at Ticketmaster.
