As Waka Flocka Flame likes to say: "Yea, I'm on that fuck shit those free tix."

The perpetually shirtless ATL party boy has always repped that life. Well, at least since 2010, when he got famous for "go[in'] hard in the motherfuckin' paint."

Now he's wilin' out 'round the U.S.A. (including Grand Central Miami), promising to "Fuck Shit" and "stomp yo' ass out till the DJ hit the lights."

Of course, all he really means is "this is going to be fun and I'd like to give away some complimentary passes to my upcoming concert in the 305." Just check the cut for contest instructions.

Win Free Tickets for Porter Robinson's Worlds Tour at Fillmore Miami Beach


Porter Robinson says: "I literally fucking love you."

Actually ... He says it a lot. Especially when he's feeling "so caffeinated" and "over-earnest."

The 21-year-old producer was set to be the next epic thing in EDM. But then he decided to reject "the boring, functional music for DJs," as he recently wrote in a note to fans, "that electronic music is currently known for."

He holed up in the studio. He chose to "write music sincerely." And he's finally about to unleash the "complete vision," an album entitled Worlds.

Now, to show how much you are "really, really, really cherish[ed]," Porter's taking the new record on tour and he's giving away free tix. Just check the cut for contest instructions.

Win Free Tickets for St. Vincent at Fillmore Miami Beach


What is "an ordinary day"?

Sleep, eat a bowl of cereal, sit at a desk, sip some cheap white wine, sleep.

And if St. Vincent's new-ish song "Birth in Reverse" can be considered a fairly factual account of 24 hours in the life of Ms. Annie Clark ... Well, she might add, "Take out the garbage, masturbate."

Now, our daily chores are nowhere near that exciting. But we here at Crossfade do like to spice up the mundane by giving away free tickets to titillating concerts, like St. Vincent herself at the Fillmore Miami Beach.

Win Free Tickets for Of Montreal at Grand Central Miami


Don't try to pin a tidy label on Of Montreal, baby.

In fact, when we here at Crossfade chatted with crew leader Kevin Barnes as he prepared to unveil the band's latest album, Lousy With Sylvianbriar, the puckish indie type toyed with us, insisting he "might call [it] Americana maybe" or possibly "kind of like outlaw country," though it's "not really country either" and definitely "not anything like the Eagles."

Now, we'll simplify things and say: Sylvianbriar is maybe Of Montreal's most straight-ahead rock 'n' roll record ever. And if you wanna rock out like "la, la, la, ooh-ah-ah" ...

Just check the cut to win two free tickets for Kevin and crew at Grand Central Miami.
