NERDSWAG: Win Tickets to Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton

danny-elfmanWith Halloween rapidly approaching the events to celebrate this monster-filled month of October are coming at us fast. One event that every All Hallow’s Eve enthusiast is ready for are the performances of Danny Elfman’s Music from the Film’s of Tim Burton. Former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman will be performing the original tunes he composed for the Tim Burton’s films The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Batman and more. The shows in Los Angeles are proving such a hot ticket that a 3rd performance has been added. Tickets are still available for the recently added show on the 30th so don’t delay and get tickets here. If you’re willing to roll the dice with Ooogie boogie though, we have a pair of tickets to give away to that show.

Until his  performances at Royal Albert Hall, Danny hadn’t sang publicly since Oingo Boingo broke up in 1995. You’ll be majorly disappointed if you miss this “Dead Man’s Party”, because at the shows in England Danny took on the role of Pumpkin King, singing “Jack’s Lament” and “What’s This?” among others. Elfman was also joined onstage at Royal Albert Hall by Helena Bonham Carter to sing “Sally’s Song.” Who will be joining the macabre musician in LA?
