You can see The Naked and Famous at Moogfest. Or in New Zealand. Or both.

Moogfest band The Naked and Famous is a quintet of New Zealand-based indie rockers. They released their debut, Passive Me, Aggressive You just over a year ago and have already won two New Zealand music awards (best engineers, best producers) and an APRA Silver Scroll award for the song “Young Blood.” (Watch that video, below.)

The Naked and Famous play Moogfest on Saturday, Oct. 29. Can’t make it? Or can’t get enough? The band is holding a contest with a grand prize of a trip to Aukland, New Zealand to see them perform on their home turf at the New Zealand Music Awards and at Auckland Town Hall.

According to a press release, “The ultimate prize courtesy of Air New Zealand includes:
