In his review of Rome Fortune’s Small World, for Wondering Sound, Brandon Soderberg said, “Fotune’s delivery marries Andre 3000′s recent off-the-rails, often-offbeat spoken word to Gucci Mane’s rubbery complexity. On “Why,” essentially a slightly sleazeir version of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend,” Rome matter-of-factly tells a boyfriend how he hooked up with the guy’s girlfriend during an Uber ride to a show. It’s a rewarding, immersive record that never quite does what you’d expect it to do.”

Now, Wondering Sound is giving you the opportunity to experience that unpredictability in person. We’re giving away a pair of tickets to see Rome Fortune live on Wednesday, December 10 at the Studio at Webster Hall in New York. (You can buy tickets here). The show is part of Pigeons & Planes‘ “No Ceilings” series, which launched in September, and the bill is rounded out by Tunji Ige, along with Jon Waltz, Chaz French, and Ace Cosgrove.”
