FREE TICKETS: Theophilus London @ El Rey, LA 1/22/12

January 17. 2012 | By Trina N. Green

Don’t believe the hype; instead, believe in the urban pop of one Theophilus London. Straight out of Brooklyn, he’s the MC, rapper, singer, and songwriter who makes his mark with eclecticism; mixing up a grab bag of hip-hop, soul, new wave, electro, and R&B into some serious soundscapes and his This Charming Mixtape sealed the deal with the ears of the masses (and what a clever cover photo; see Elvis Costello for further).

London is coming to Los Angeles with his headlining Tour de Roses and gets to plant his flag on the El Rey Theater stage on January 22nd. You, my friends, can score a pair of tickets to get your hip-hop on and all you have to do is leave a comment telling us what your favorite flower is. Yes, it can even be roses.

Contest ends 1/20. For more information, visit the Goldenvoice event page HERE.
