CONTEST – The Black Angels @ The Horseshoe – April 12, 2007
Another holiday weekend token post! Yay!
If yesterday’s Son Volt contest isn’t your speed, I’ve got another option for you to fill out your itinerary for next Thursday night. Austin drone merchants The Black Angels will be at the Horseshoe on April 12 with New York’s VietNam, and courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show.
To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see The Black Angels” in the subject line, your full name and the answer me this – “Where did The Black Angels draw inspiration for their name?” This is easy – maybe easier than, “Where did VietNam get their name?”. Maybe. And speaking of VietNam, check out their Daytrotter session, if you’re curious.
Also note that even if you’ve entered the Son Volt contest and win, you’re not necessarily ineligible for this one – SV is an early show and it’s entirely reasonable to say that you’d be able to hoof it from the Mod Club to the ‘Shoe in time to see The Black Angels. But if, perchance, you do win both and don’t want to schedule a doubleheader, let me know. Of course, this could have been sorted out by email after the fact and not in the post. But I’ve already typed it and can’t be bothered to erase it. Anyway. Contest closes April 9 at midnight.
