CONTEST – Rain Machine @ Lee's Palace – October 19, 2009

Photo By Eric MartinEric MartinIt’s hard to imagine that an outfit as musically diverse as TV On The Radio wouldn’t allow one to fully express oneself musically, but Kyp Malone – also known as the mightiest ‘fro/beard/’fro-and-beard in Brooklyn has still opted to strike out on his own whilst TVOTR is on a break as Rain Machine.

Malone wrote and played most every note on the Rain Machine’s self-titled debut and while it will sound immediately familiar to fans of TVOTR – there’s no disguising Malone’s distinctive voice – the styles and textures invoked still bring something new to the table. And it gives him an excuse to tour – Malone will bring Rain Machine to Lee’s Palace in Toronto on October 19. Tickets are $15 in advance but courtesy of Rootmeansquare, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want to see Rain Machine” in the subject line and your full name in the body and get that to me before midnight, October 15.

There’s interviews with Malone about going solo at The Skinny, The Fader and Red & Black.
