It lingered in the background at nearly every one of our backyard barbecues last year -- Givers' up-tempo debut record, In Light. Nestled alongside the Black Keys' El Camino, Fleet Foxes' Helplessness Blues, and Cults' self-titled effort, the record even earned a spot on our arbitrary Best Of 2011 list, an accolade that the Louisiana-based band likely overlooked.

Fret not. On Thursday, January 19, when Givers plays Bardot's Living Room Sessions concert series, Crossfade will attempt to present the quintet with a makeshift award commemorating its buzz-worthy achievements .
But what do you give a Giver? Here a few things we have in mind.



Washboard
Arguably the most versatile instrument on the planet, the washboard doesn't only make for great zydeco indie-pop. It's also a portable laundry room. Hurray for cleanliness and Creole rhythm!

Band-Aid Adhesive Bandages
Be it on guitar strings, drumsticks, washboards, whatever -- musicians are always injuring their fingers. And with Givers penchant for superenergetic shows and constant flip-flopping of instruments, the road can be a very dangerous place. Surely, they'd appreciate a big box of Johnson & Johnson.

Dashikis
Givers already blends elements of African percussion. Why not blend elements of African garb?

Antacids
Creole food can be a little spicy, even for a band from Louisiana. And nothing's worse than heartburn.

Parachute
Givers are only going to go "Up Up Up" in 2012.

Givers with Sirens & Sealions. Thursday, January 19. Bardot, 3456 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The show starts at 10 p.m. and tickets cost $18 to $22 plus fees via bardotmiami.showclix.com. Ages 21 and up. Call 305-576-7750 or visit bardotmiami.com.
