blowoffptownposter.jpgI'll be in Ptown for "Bear Week," July 9-16, and I hope to greet the two winning Projectors.

Rock and electronic music powerhouses Richard Morel and Bob Mould host and DJ BLOWOFF, a musical smackdown featuring their meaty signature mix of indie rock, electro and house. July 12, The Boatslip, 161 Commercial St., Provincetown, MA. Doors/party starts at 9:00pm. $10.00, 18+

I've attended Blowoffs in Washington, D.C. and in New York City, and I am always gratified by the ingenious mix produced by Mould and Morel. Into the weave go '60s classics and disco standards from the '70s to get men my age moving in sync with younger guys who subscribe to M&M's contemporary vibe and weren't born when some of what they are hearing was first issued. Nobody weaves it all together so successfully, and their accompanying videos are an equally intelligent distraction.

You don't have to be a bear to enjoy these tickets, but expect to see a lot of fur on the dance floor. Leaving a comment is the first step to winning the tickets. Details after the break.

I'm in the middle of Bob Mould's fascinating autobiography See A Little Light. He is not your typical rock star.

Contest rules:

a) The two tickets are the prize that goes to the single winner.
b) Any Bilerico reader who leaves a comment on this post is eligible.
c) No purchase necessary to enter or win.
d) Bil Browning will pick the winner at random from among the eligible entries.
e) Transportation is not included in the prize. Just the two event tickets.
d) The contest closes at noon EST on Friday, July 8, 2011.

What's a Blowoff?

And I promise, if chosen, I will donate my tickets to the person who comments after me.

Dear Om Kalthoum,

(and this will NOT count as the comment after yours)

Blowoff is a roving dance event, held in various cities like DC, NYC, SF and Ptown. It is the brainchild of Mould and Morel who are music legends far beyond the largely gay crowd that Blowoff reaches.

When some DJs mix music, they simply string their favorites together, but in the case of Mould/Morel there is an artistry that is startling and delicious, and, as I said, the videos they create to go with their performances are intriguing. It's a very good time, even for old jades like me.

Thank you. That's certainly better than what I envisioned. :)

Richard Morel and Bob Mould? Is this my musical wet dream or WHAT?! I would be absolutely OVER THE BEARISH MOON if I got these tickies. Thanks for the opportunity!


It's sure to be a great time, count me in for the drawing!

I like free! Blowoff in Ptown is always a great time. Looking forward to it regardless!

Blowoff! I missed it last year - although I had my share of bears!

Looking forward to Blowoff in ptown.

Mi gusta osos. Love the bears. My partner and I would love to attend. He's a 60 year old retired pastor Grizzly. We have always wanted to make the pilgrimage. Thank you.

Let the fur fly.

Bears and Blowout in one room? Yes please! :cub eyes:

A native New Englander, I lived in Provincetown for several years. This is way too cool! Who says you can't win the chance to go home again?
