With eight musicians in the band, the stage at a Bajofondo show quickly becomes crowded.

South American collective Bajofondo began by mixing tango and electronica, but over time the group's sounds broadened to include elements of house and trip-hop. Thursday, September 17, the band brings its eclectic sounds to Downtown's historic Mayan Theatre and we've got tickets for blogdowntown readers who would like to be there courtesy of Goldenvoice.

Opening the night is Anomie Belle, noted for setting her socially conscious lyrics to down-tempo electronic music.

Want to attend the show? We've got two pairs of tickets to give away. Just leave a comment letting us know why you should win. Be sure to include contact info via Facebook or email. Contest closes Wednesday at 6pm.


Note (Wednesday 11pm): A commenter noted that the text above said Thursday, but that I had closed the contest off today. In order to get the names to the venue I have to close off contests at least the day before the show, so I just made a mistake on what day I listed. My apologies.
