On general principle, I never do ticket giveaways because we are a very serious music website devoted to very serious things like weed smoking and music about weed smoking and occasionally epic songs about African funk lords swallowing weed and getting arrested, and being forced to switch stool samples with people who don’t smoke weed. How else could I pay my gas bill? Right…. (said in the Smoke DZA voice).

However, tomorrow night Dublab is taking over LACMA for a night of DJ sets and sound installations and a Tim Burton lookalike contest. Winner gets a free plot at Hillside Cemetery. Frosty, the fearless Dublab leader, asked me if I wanted to give away three pairs of tickets to Passion of the Weiss readers. And since they’re going for $30 a piece online (provided you use the code: Dublab), I figured that a lot of people would want to go. Also, free beer and wine. In the words of the another fearless leader: what the blod clot? So with that quote in mind, send the names of your three favorite Method Man songs to [email protected]

I will be picking winners based on personal preference — all features available for inclusion, including the Blackout albums and sundry appearances on Batman soundtracks. Below the jump, more info about the event. Down below, two excellent  mixes that Dublab has dropped in recent vintage.

On 09.10.11 radio collective dublab turns LACMA into a sonic adventure with this exclusive, after-hours event. Tour the museum’s galleries with a tailor-made soundtrack, with performances and interactive projects along the way. Then check out an exploration of sound, both amplified and silent, in front of LACMA’s iconic Urban Light sculpture. This event is curated by dublab and presented by LACMA Muse, the museum’s premier group for young art patrons.

RESNICK PAVILION:

Daedelus presents…”Toil & Trouble,” a musical menagerie inspired by LACMA’s Tim Burton exhibition.

DOWNLOAD MIX: Daedelus presents…”Toil & Trouble,” a musical menagerie inspired by LACMA’s Tim Burton exhibition. Put this on your personal music player and listen while touring the show.

”Toil & Trouble,” as inspired by the phenomenal Tim Burton Retrospective at LACMA thru Halloween; is an attempt to evoke some of the very disparate forces at play and playful in Mr. Burton’s oeuvre. Here is a gentleman that has crossed every creative boundary with iconic style, so a daunting task indeed to try and reveal his unique spirit in song, but with much joy in my attempt. Deciding to have this mix be a sort of counter-soundtrack for the installation, as well a meditation on his considerable style. You’ll find ancient and classic tracks with some modern musics from the likes of Shlohmo, Airhead, Flying Lotus with MatthewDavid, and much much more. I do so hope you enjoy, or at least revel in the airs solely Tim Burton.” – Daedelus
