Swedish garage rock band Mando Diao seem to be quite fond of making up words. First, their band name came to singer Bjorn Dixgard in a dream, then they named their recent release Ode to Ochrasy, which is a made-up term meaning, well, we’re not sure exactly, since we’ve read so many variations on the story. What’s not made up, however, is the fact that the band is in town tomorrow night at The Horseshoe, with supporters Pop Levi & The Films. It’s true. In fact, courtesy of Against the Grain, we have 2 pairs of tickets just for you. If you want to go, send an email with your full name to [email protected], along with the answer to this skill-testing question: What’s better? Swedish meatballs, Ikea or blondes. Entries 4 and 6 win the prize.
Saturday, May 12
Tickets are $12.50 in advance, $15 at the door.
Mando Diao @ 12:10 a.m., Pop Levi @ 11 p.m., The Films @ 10 p.m.
