Yukiko Corella wins the Take Cover grand prize Levi’s Pioneer Sessions x Crosley turntable for guessing last week’s song — I Saw Her Standing There covered by The Rebels, an Iranian boy band from the 60’s. Impressive, Yokiko. Apparently, we have some serious music nerds in our midst. Thanks to everyone who participated, and if you guessed this one, too, give yourself a pat on the back. Stay tuned for more fun from Howie, and come see him DJ in the desert this and every Friday, all from old 45s.

Ladies, gentlemen, and everyone else. We present to you the third and final mystery song for Take Cover, our music contest with Howie Pyro, the grand prize for which is a brand new car! Just kidding! It’s actually a Levi’s Pioneer Sessions Limited Edition Crosley Turntable! So listen carefully, and guess wisely. We’ll announce the genius next week.

Come see Howie spin tonight in the desert. We’ve got a Desert Facial with fresh mint and your name on it. And Howie’s picking out some good stuff from his 45s…


We weren’t sure you would be able to do it, but we stand corrected. Lewis Winter solved last week’s Take Cover without a hitch. For those of you who were left guessing, it was German clarinetist Rolf Kühn covering Black Sabbath’s Paranoid.
This week is the third and final round of Take Cover. We’re giving the winner a Levi’s Pioneer Sessions Limited Edition Crosley Turntable. So stay tuned for the mystery song. Bonus points for anyone who sends us a video of themselves covering their favorite song on an unusual instrument. All guesses, performances, and musings should be directed here.

TAKE COVER : WEEK TWO

Our next round of Take Cover takes it up a few notches. You have to guess the song and the artist covering it. As you may remember, this is the second of three rounds of the contest. We’re giving Ace t-shirts (and other assorted treats — whatever we feel like putting in the envelope) as the prize booty for the first two weeks. But for the third and final round, contenders will compete tooth and nail for a Levi’s Pioneer Sessions Limited Edition Crosley Turntable. Howie, our wild and punishing host, is going to find the weirdest thing he’s got. Something your iPhone has no chance in hell of detecting.

Howie’s spinning Intoxica Radio Live tonight in the Amigo Room at Ace Palm Springs. Come for a drink and see if you can pick up any clues…

A send your guesses for this week to contest@acehotel.com. Tally ho!

A few of you figured out it was Phyllis Diller singing Satisfaction on last week’s TAKE COVER mystery song from Howie, but we’re giving Darrin Roberts an Ace Hotel t-shirt for calling it first. Our favorite guess was Yoko Ono. Wow.
Stay tuned this week for the second song in our line-up. And we’ll post the final song next week, the prize for which will be a Levi’s Pioneer Sessions Limited Edition Crosley Turntable.

TAKE COVER

Guess who this is covering Satisfaction and we’ll send you an Ace Hotel t-shirt in the mail, SWAK. Howie Pyro picked this out for you and, true to form, it’s mildly terrifying. The contest is in honor of Levi’s Pioneer Sessions - artists covering the classic songs that inspire them. We’ll post another song for you to guess next week, and again the following week, except for the third time around we’ll give the winner a Levi’s Pioneer Sessions Limited Edition Crosley Turntable. What a mouthful. The name is actually larger than the deck itself. It’s compact, handsome, and sounds as clear and crisp as all of your records must have 40 years ago. Carry on, contenders! Send your guess to us with “Howie Pyro x Levi’s x Ace” in the subject line.

*Update: The mystery has been solved. And it isn’t Yoko Ono.
