Return to the scene of the crime - Gossip show photos and prize giveaway!

Touring in support of their most recent release Music for Men, Gossip may have lost their 'The' but not their ability to rile up a crowd as they came through Madison a few weeks ago.
Produced by über-producer Rick Rubin, Gossip played to a packed Majestic Theater. Singer Beth Ditto opened Gossip's set by apologizing for her hoarse voice, saying she had a "great" time on Friday in Chicago. With Hannah Blilie providing highly danceable syncopated drum beats, Brace Paine laying down roaring guitar riffs and Ditto still reaching for the rafters with her soulful voice, the crowd at The Majestic didn't let Ditto's apparent tour related illness stop them from having a "great" time.
Opener MEN brought their activism on the road, combining infectious dance music with crowd pleasing political messages. At one point MEN was joined on stage by helpers who held up a large sign that simply read "Silence=Death."
