Get Your Swag On: Koop Tickets and CDs!

When listening to the genre-defying twists and turns of Koop, one may wonder just what the hell is going on exactly. Their incredibly catchy sound mixes jazz, dance music, and electronica into a 21st-century big band...but actually it's just two Swedish guys, Magnus Zingmark and Oscar Simonsson, sampling thousands of eclectic recordings into brand new pop symphonies (all the while wearing pounds of gender-bender makeup and fancy dresses, natch. Are they gay? You tell me, sister). The duo then recruit off-the-wall fabulous singers to croon their blissed-out lyrics, and wham! -- suddenly you're living in the Koop Islands, the name of their latest CD.

To celebrate the album's release, Koop is making a rare tour of the United States...when playing live, Koop transforms into a fully-stocked swingtronica orchestra including one or two singers. Kicking off November 2nd at New York City’s Hiro Ballroom, with dates in Washington DC, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles to follow.

Modern Fabulousity has two spectacular prizes to give away, including the new CD and concert tickets!
  • GRAND PRIZE: Two (2) tickets to see Koop live on November 2nd at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City, and a copy of the CD Koop Islands.
  • FIRST PRIZE: A copy of the Koop Island CD.
TO ENTER: email your name and mailing address. The contest ends Monday, October 29 at 6PM US EST. Good luck!
