Win a pair of tickets to music/film event Stephin Merritt With The Unknown (1927) at the Castro Theatre as part of the San Francisco International Film Festival on Tuesday, May 6 — the second of our Festival giveaways!

Joan Crawford and Lon Chaney in The Unknown (1927)

Stephin Merrit of The Magnetic Fields

Stephin Merrit of The Magnetic Fields

As the leader of the band the Magnetic Fields, Stephin Merritt has always played the outcast. It's only fitting that this screening pairs him with some of silent cinema's quintessential iconoclasts, director Tod Browning and master monster Lon Chaney (plus then-relative-newcomer Joan Crawford) in The Unknown. This 1927 film is a characteristically outré offering from Browning, starring Chaney as supposedly armless circus performer named Alonzo. He can do anything with his feet that most do with their hands, but he carries a terrible secret: Not only does Alonzo possess hands, he uses them to strangle people to death.

Preceding The Unknown, Merritt will conduct the audience in creating a soundtrack to Guy Maddin's visceral short Sissy Boy Slap Party (1995.) With special guest on accordion, Daniel Handler.

Want to go? All you have to do to enter is answer this question:

"In which year did Stephin's band The Magnetic Fields release their three-volume concept album 69 Love Songs?"

Send an email to giveaway@kqed.org with the subject "Stephin Merritt" that contains your answer and your full name. From all correct entries, we'll randomly select one winner to receive a pair of tickets (worth $60.)

Deadline to enter is Monday, May 5 at 9am. Winners will be notified by e-mail on Monday morning, and tickets will be held at Will Call at the venue. Value: $30 per ticket. You must be a California resident and 18 years or older to participate. Employees of KQED are not eligible to enter.
