CONTEST – Marnie Stern @ The Silver Dollar – July 6, 2007
I like the bio for Marnie Stern at this year’s SxSW website, so I’m just going to crib it: “Ok. Let’s get this out of the way. Marnie Stern can shred. She’s a better guitar player than you, or me, or probably 99% of the people who have ever looked at a guitar.” Fair enough? And probably true, from the sounds of it. I heard the destroyed at SxSW and that was backed by an iPod – now she’s got a band including Zach Hill of Hella on drums, so face-melting is almost guaranteed. The Georgia Straight has an interview.
Stern will be in town this coming Friday for a show at the Silver Dollar in support of her debut album, In Advance Of The Broken Arm and courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for this show. To enter, shoot me an email at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Marnie Stern” in the subject line and your full name in the email body. Contest will close at midnight, July 3.
