We here at SOTC have for the first time ever decided to give away free tickets to an excellent show. For our inaugural, er, contest?, we’re bestowing one of you with a plus-one slot to this Sunday’s David Bazan performance at the Bowery Ballroom. The former Pedro the Lion dude comes highly recommended in these parts, given that Rob is “moderately obsessed with” him and we respect Bazan’s frank handling of religious confusion and drinking and Jesus and stuff. Plus, this takes place on the Sabbath.
Look, there’s no way to say this without sounding like a DJ at WSOC, but the first person to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “David Bazan” will get two tickets to the October 18 show. Real easy! Also, here’s an MP3 from Curse Your Branches, the record he’s in town to promote. You’re welcome.
