Win Tix For Grouplove And Reptar At Webster Hall On June 12

Grouplove seems to be everywhere these days, helped in part by the band's prominent placement in iPad Touch and Taco Bell commercials. Aside from their astute way around a sync, this amiable group has also become a festival staple and Grouplove will play Sasquatch! and Bonnaroo this spring. TAS is giving away tickets to Grouplove's sold-out show at Webster Hall on June 12 and opening will be Reptar, getting a lot of enthusiastic attention for its just-released debut album Body Faucet.

Ticket Giveaway For Young The Giant And Grouplove At Terminal 5 On March 9

Banish the late winter blues with two sunny California bands coming to New York: Young the Giant, whose affection for anthemic indie rock was evident on their 2011 debut album, and the shambolically good-natured Grouplove, whose song "Tongue Tied" was tapped for high-profile commercial for Apple's iPod. The Alternate Side is giving away tickets to see both bands when they take over Terminal 5 on March 9.

Los Angeles' charming popsters, Grouplove, won't release their debut album until September, but the band of close friends (and one couple) have an eponymous EP out now. The quintet will be at Brooklyn Bowl, as part of Northside Festival, on June 18 and make their Glastonbury debut on June 24. The five effusive pals visited The Alternate Side's Studio A not long ago and not only talked about their serendipitous meeting in Greece, but played several songs from their EP, including "Naked Kids," which was partially written on a pizza box.
