GIVEAWAY: Win Tickets to See Karmin at TLA [CONTEST CLOSED]


We’re celebrating our first week of Ticket by giving away — well look at that — tickets to see Karmin at the TLA on Fri., Jan. 31. The pop duo — consisting of peppy vocalist Amy Heidemann and pianist Nick Noonan —  is currently on a tour to promote their first full-length album, Pulses, due out on March 25.  The group became famous via a string of amazing cover videos on YouTube, where Heidemann flawlessly imitated everyone from Nicki Minaj to Chris Brown to Lady Gaga. In 2011, they signed with Epic Records, and put out their most popular single, “Brokenhearted.” Most recently they’ve released “Acapella” and “I Want it All,” both from the upcoming album.
