Smallpools and Magic Man Ticket Giveaway for 10/29 Show at the TLA!

It’s no secret that Rock On Philly loves Magic Man. The Boston-based quintet has played our proverbial heartstrings with synth excellence since they came to play Penn in the spring.

On October 29, they’re swooping in to Philadelphia for an epic show at the TLA. This is something you don’t want to miss.

    I’m dying to see Magic Man perform material from their new album. They are fantastic and I have yet to see them in all their synthy glory. I’m also excited to hear some new material from Smallpools because those guys are really great..but it’s been a while since their EP was released. Would love to check them both out at The TLA!!

    I would absolutely love to see specifically Smallpools but Magic Man as well! I’ve never had the opportunity to see Smallpools and they are a fantastic band that I jam out to 24/7. These tickets would mean so much to me! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would love to see Smallpools and Magic Man live because they give off amazing vibes! They put a lot of time and effort into giving a performance! Would totally love to see that in action. Both bands are amazing and special in their own way.

    I would do just about anything to be able to see Smallpools again! Me and saw them when they were on tour with Neon Trees in the spring. We had no idea who they were, we just wanted to see Neon Trees, but weren’t able to get tickets in time! We met some of the guys from Smallpools before the show, and they were so nice that they decided to give us tickets to the show! From that moment on, me and my friend decided to become die-hard Smallpools fans. Now we know every word to every song! 🙂 We swore we would go see Smallpools again for their fall tour, but unfortunately I’m having surgery the day they are coming to Atlanta. 🙁 I would give anything to see Smallpools again!!!!! ME AND MY FRIEND ARE THEIR NUMBER ONE FANS WE LOVE THEM!!!!!!

    When I first found out about this concert I knew I wanted to go. I have been hesitant about getting tickets because I haven’t found anyone to go with me because it is a school night and a big night for activities at school but I am considering going alone or with any random person who shares a love of smallpools and magic man or can discover them!! Would love to see mason jar performed live and it would be awesome to go to my first tla / general admission floor concert!

    Magic Man absolutely blew my mind at Fling last year. I didn’t know much about them but it was the best part of Fling for me. Both Magic Man and Smallpools have the kind of music that just makes me feel like I’m a part of something bigger. It’s beautiful and it’s great to dance to. I’d love the chance to experience them both in a venue like TLA.

    Oh why do I want to see Smallpools and Magic man in concert, well to begin with they have been my favorite opening acts I have ever seen. Magic man opening for panic and smallpools for twenty one, now being able to see them each have a long set would be incredible! Both acts have the ability to get the crowd going in a few seconds and seeing them in such a nice venue like the TLA would give me the realization that both these bands have become unique and will continue to grow in both talent and a fan base!!

    Would totally kill to see both Smallpools and Magic Man together! I’ve been waiting for this tour since they announced it! They get everything pumping and jamming, makes everyone wanna dance and sing along. I’ve seen them both at least once and the crowd was amazing for both. In high hopes I hope to win to see them again, since I am very tight on money right now. Both bands need more fans and love and I’m sharing both bands wherever I go. This would be a great time to tell both bands that I love their music and love the chills they give me when I listen to their material.

    I would love to see Magic Man and Smallpools because the passion they both give on stage. They get the crowd moving. I’ve been listening to both bands since they formed and I am a proud fan. Seeing them both again would be a treasure, hopefully meeting them would be even greater. Magic Man gives me a feel that I can’t explain, as do Smallpools. If I win I would be the happiest gal in the world, being able to see both of my favorite bands live! I mean, my face would light up and all, seeing Alex and Sean dancing and smiling as they give an amazing preformance. Gosh,just typing this gets me excited for this concert that I might be able to go to, even to share with my friend!

    I’ve been seeing Smallpools since they first toured to the east coast with San Cisco (great band, by the way) and every time I’ve seen them after I’ve watched their fan base grow. Their songs are catchy, fun and I can’t wait for another dance party on Wednesday! I’ve heard many, many great things about Magic Man and I would love to finally get to experience them live.
