WIN KING TUT’S TICKETS They don’t look a day over 19, but February marks the 20th birthday of Glasgow’s musical institution, King Tut’s. To celebrate their milestone, the venue is putting on a pretty stellar line-up of gigs. Do you fancy seeing giants Brett Anderson, The Undertones, Enter Shikari, Spoon or hot young talents First Aid Kit playing in a tiny, cosy setting? We’ve got a free pair of tickets for all five gigs to be snapped up. To enter, see below.
You loved singing along to all those ‘na na na nas’ on ‘The Final Countdown’, but you also realise that Europe, the Swedish band behind the 80s hit, are now very well respected in the metal community. One lucky fan can meet and greet the rockers (who now make much bluesier, heavier music) backstage before they play Glasgow’s 02 ABC on Sun 28 Feb. The winner will also get a pair of tickets to the show, an autographed copy of their new Last Look at Eden album and a Europe T-shirt. WIN GODSKITCHEN TRANCE CDs
This 3 CD collection of trance anthems from UK superclub Godskitchen will bring the dancefloor flashbacks flooding back, with tracks from Paul Van Dyk, Faithless, Tiesto, Ferry Corsten and Deadmau5. We’ve got three copies of Godskitchen Pure Trance Classics to be won.
WIN BRIT AWARDS 2010 CDs
There is nothing guilty about this pleasure- treasure-trove. GaGa, Cole, Nutini, Stryder, Furtado, Winehouse? They all pop up on Brit Awards 2010, a 3 CD compilation marking 2009’s biggest pop moments. Not convinced? What if they also chucked in some old school Prince, Queen and Bros for good measure? C’mon, you know you’re dying to hear it really. We’ve got three copies to be won. ■ To enter, head to www.list.co.uk/offers. Closing date for winning tickets to Brett Anderson, Spoon and Enter Shikari is Fri 5 Feb. For tickets to The Undertones and First Aid Kit and all other competitions, closing date is Thu 18 Feb.
