[UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winner has been notified.]

Poliça and Supreme Cuts are coming to the Wonder Ballroom on Saturday, August 18, and we've got a pair of tickets for you to win!

If you're not familiar with these bands, they are making futuristic bedroom jams that could be set in a postmodern world where everything is caught on tape—if privacy is a thing of the past, what happens to intimacy? Does sex become any less sexy? No, it's often actually more so, and through Poliça's sleek, contoured R&B and Supreme Cuts' druggy, globe-embracing post-hiphop, it's the body that's in control—matter over mind.

That was the worst, most pretentious paragraph I've ever typed. I should just let the bands speak for themselves. Here's Poliça's very cool video, and here's a track from Supreme Cuts.

Good. You got it. To win the pair of tickets, send an email to this address with "Poliça and Supreme Cuts" in the subject line (extra credit for putting the little squiggly line on the "c," but it's not required). We'll pick a winner at random and send him or her, plus a guest, on their way to the show. This'll shut down at noon on Monday, August 13. Good luck!
