To celebrate this sweet occasion we have a very special giveaway including one of Coasting's very cool, limited edition, glow in the dark 7"s made from left over materials from The Dead Weathers triple decker record (more on that HERE) and with artwork by Cassie Ramone (Vivian Girls). They are sold out except for the 25 Coasting bought with them to the country to sell at their shows. You can win this along with a single pass to a show of your choice and a copy of The Sneaks' Today EP - log in and enter below.
These will be really fun shows, be sure to get along.

Coasting is Madison Farmer (Dream Diary) and Fiona Campbell (The Vivian Girls) from Brooklyn, New York. These ladies started playing together just over a year ago when they met working and running shows in the Brooklyn DIY scene. Fiona's an expat kiwi, ex-drummer for the Coolies which undoubtedly landed them spots playing the sold out Chris Knox Benefit in New York alongside Jeff Mangu...m (Neutral Milk Hotel), Claudia Gonson (Magnetic Fields), Kip Malone (TV on the Radio) and Yo La Tengo; and scoring the coveted opening slot for The Clean's sold out New York show.
Amongst their merch they are bringing with them 25 copies of their sold out glow in the dark record (materials scored from Dead Weathers insane triple decker record by Third Man Records), get in quick!!
Forced into racing their oval friends by the evil wizard who would turn them to stone at his whim upon waking, it has been a tough new years for the Sneaks. http://www.mygame.com/game/The_Sneaks
But now they're out of exile and ready to party!
Joining Coasting, they'll be hawking their new EP 'Today' through the country - five songs recorded in two days in a bedsit studio in Brooklyn mid way through 2010, packaged lovingly in handcrafted recycled cardboard. Mean!!
