CONTEST CLOSED! Exclusive - Win Free Tickets to See Powerman 5000 in Hollywood, CA
With action-rock band Powerman 5000 slated to play with Rob Zombie in October at Great American Nightmare, we thought it might be cool to offer up two pairs of free tickets to see them in a more intimate setting: The Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood, CA. Read on!
Powerman 5000, whose hits include the tracks "When Worlds Collide" and "Nobody's Real," and whose latest (and currently untitled album) is slated for release next year via Universal Music Group, will be playing The Whiskey (8901 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood) on Wednesday, September 25th, prior to taking the stage with Rob Zombie on October 2nd at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare, and we've got two pairs of tickets for you to the former. How can you snag them? Tweet this article both to Powerman5000 @therealSpider1 and to Dread Central @dreadcentral, and we will select and notify two lucky recipients, who'll find a pair of passes waiting for them at the door the night of The Whiskey gig.
Chatting with Dread Central, Powerman 5000 vocalist Spider One stated of the West Hollywood show, "It's going to be a great night! We haven't played live in almost a year so we are all anxious to make some noise. The plan is to debut some new stuff from the upcoming record as well as all the old favorites!"
As for what fans can expect of the new album, which he's been writing with ex-American Head Charge and current PM5K guitarist Nick Quijano, he offered, "The new album is shaping up to be monster! It's a party for the end of the world! A celebration for the alien invasion! A mix of metal guitars, buzzed out synths and subsonic beats! All topped off with me screaming the secrets of the universe into your ear holes!"
As for Great American Nightmare, which takes place at the Pomona Fairplex, the festival runs from October 10th to November 2nd, with headliner Rob Zombie and support acts Eagles of Death Metal, Powerman 5000 and 45 Grave closing out the run (which will also include three haunt mazes based on Zombie's horror flicks titled "Lords of Salem Total Black Out," "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto 3D," and "House of 1000 Corpses").
