On March 12th, Red Bull Soundclash will pit Cee Lo Green against The Ting Tings in an avant-garde, live mashup concert at the MGM Resort. And we’re giving away a pair of tickets to one luck Flavorpill reader to check out the event! Click through for a little primer on what Cee Lo and The Ting Tings have been up to recently, and let us know in the comments who you think has the musical chops to come out on top in this battle of the bands.
Last month, Cee Lo Green — who was nominated in five categories — took home a Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for “F*** You.” But that’s not what made headlines the following day; instead it was his show-stealing performance of a cleaned up version of the song with his new pal Gwyneth Paltrow and a bunch of Muppets.
The Ting Tings
The Ting Tings are releasing their second album, Massage Kunst, in April, but the first single, “Hands” (which was mixed by Calvin Harris!), is already out. The duo, comprised of Katie White and Jules De Martino, have spent much of the past two years collecting Grammy and VMA nominations, while producing the ubiquitous new wave electro pop you hear in iPod commercials and touring with the likes of Pink.
