TICKET GIVEAWAY: The Ting Tings @ VENUE – March 28, 2015

There is no doubt that The Ting Tings know how to create infectious music.

Their debut album, We Started Nothing, produced the hits “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up and Let Me Go” that topped the charts back in 2008. The duo, consisting of Katie White and Jules De Martino, brought some of that energy into the making of their third studio album.
