Record Store Day 2014 Contest: The Music of William Onyeabor

Tomorrow is Record Store Day, and we're honoring a record collector's favorite: 70s Nigerian psychedelic funk artist (/enigma) William Onyeabor, whose music will be celebrated at BAM on May 2 & 3 as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival.

So while you're queuing up to buy records, we invite you to participate in our contest. Post a photo to Instagram or Twitter of a William Onyeabor record OR a record by any of the artists participating in ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor (see full list below) with the text "I want to go to the #WilliamOnyeabor tribute @BAM_Brooklyn on May 2 or 3! #RSD2014" for a chance to win tickets to the show, plus some awesome Onyeabor swag, courtesy of Luaka Bop.

Luaka Bop's Record Store Day release: William Onyeabor remixes, featuring many of the artists performing at BAM in two weeks.

Records (and we're talking vinyl here, people!) by or featuring any of the following artists are fair game:
  • William Onyeabor
  • David Byrne
  • Sinkane
  • Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem)
  • Money Mark (Beastie Boys)
  • Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip)
  • Luke Jenner (The Rapture)
  • DevontĂ© Hynes (Blood Orange)
  • The Lijadu Sisters
  • Joshua Redman
Bonus points for creative photos and rare Onyeabor originals!

Also, we can't tell you why, but we recommend heading to Rough Trade and Other Music tomorrow morning EARLY for a special treat...
