win the gold medalists' the city lights us on fire

Music fans, here's a cool giveaway for you... I'm partnering up with the good people at Chicago-based indie label Actually Records to celebrate the release of The Gold Medalists' new album The City Lights Us on Fire, out tomorrow on iTunes and CD Baby. The album is the work of San Francisco's Peter Nguyen, the drummer behind a number of fan-fave indie rock bands, whose music promises to kick your ass, break your heart, and set you on fire. According to the press release, the record contains "the sounds of a musician unafraid to contrast songs you want to hear on a sunny day when you wish it were raining next to high energy, throat ripping, noise-laden dance-funk riots." Listen to some samples over at The Gold Medalists' Myspace page.

So, five of you lucky readers will win a copy of The City Lights Us on Fire. Just answer this simple question: Of which two San Francisco-based bands is Peter Nguyen also a member? (You'll probably find the answer by poking around Actually Records.) Email me your response, along with your name and mailing address, by the end of this Thursday, December 6. Please clearly include "Gold Medalists CD" in the subject line. I'll throw all of the correct entries into a hat, then pick five random winners. Cool?
