.Giveaway: Beats Antique

A Beats Antique performance is less of a concert and more of a full-body, multi-media experience that relies on the audience to bring it all to life. Imagine people dressed like animals, carnival ringleaders, mythological creatures and cabaret characters dancing to gypsy-influenced violin melodies that slowly build to a crescendo before a cross-cultural, worry-consuming beat drops, turning the whole thing into a rhythmic collective of bouncing, swaying bodies. A decade in, Beats Antique has inspired a generation of world-fusion artists and beatmakers, and established themselves as one of the enduring bands of the Bay Area electronica movement. On Halloween, the band brings the party to the Catalyst.

INFO: 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $30/adv, $35/door. 423-1338. WANT TO GO? Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
