CONTEST – Maria Taylor & Johnathan Rice @ The El Mocambo – June 26, 2008

I realize it should be totally irrelevant, but what I find most interesting about the bill rolling in to the El Mocambo next Thursday night are the artists’ significant others. After all, both the headliners are dating the king and queen of the indie kid prom – Maria Taylor having shacked up with Conor Oberst and Johnathan Rice with Jenny Lewis. I know it’s not important, I just found it interesting.
Both are continuing to promote albums released last year – Taylor with Lynn Teeter Flower and Rice with Further North – and should satisfy the most discriminating connoisseur of singer-songwritery types. Also on the bill is Nik Freitas. I don’t know who he’s dating.
Courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away for the show – to enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Maria Taylor and Johnathan Rice” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest will close at midnight, June 23.
