No less an arbiter of good musical taste than Time says LA quartet Hands is one of the 11 bands that you don’t know (but should). Better get on it!

But seriously, if you’re into the danceable indie rock craze that is sweeping the nation, Hands is well worth your time. Luckily, your chance is coming up soon. Hands is touring in support of their debut LP Synesthesia (out now on Kill Rock Stars), and they’re stopping through Brick & Mortar on June 21.

For your chance to win a pair of tickets, email me at mike.g@thebaybridged.com with “Hands” in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. The contest closes at Thursday, June 20 at 12pm PDT, and a winner will be chosen at random and notified by email.
