The Shelter has always been and will always be one of my favorite places to see a show. It is the sister venue of St. Andrew's, the smaller cooler little sibling that keeps catching onto the latest thing before anyone else. It is a room that births new acts and hosts up and comers right before they become household names. When you walk down the stairs you are sucked into another dimension, there are no windows and there is no outside world. There is just you, a few hundred like minded people, and if you have a few dollars, a few good drinks. We would personally recommend stopping by and catching a show at The Shelter as soon as you can, because the venue itself is worth checking out. But, if you're into dancing you can enter to win a pair of tickets to catch Tobacco there this Thursday, September 29th.
Tobacco, also known as Thomas Fec, is an electronic musician that records a lot of his music using analog synthesizers and tape machines. His latest album is called Sweatbox Dynasty, you can check it out here. The High Tides and Odonis Odonis will be opening up the night and tickets to attend the show are $15 in advance. They can be purchased here. We also have one pair of tickets to give away to the show courtesy of Live Nation Detroit. If you would like to enter to win a pair of tickets to the show please email your full name to email@example.com with the subject line #tobacco. We will draw one lucky winner this Thursday!
