CONTEST – Mogwai @ The Phoenix – June 30, 2008

Mogwai has been somewhat quiet – not something you can often say – since the release of Mr Beast in early 2006 and the ensuing tour, excepting the soundtrack to the Zidane film, but they’re getting back into (rock) action. First, there’s just-released tenth anniversary reissue of their debut Young Team, in remastered and double-disc form and come this Fall, they’ll release their new studio album The Hawk Is Howling on September 22, preceded by the Batcat EP on September 9.
So with the band currently standing with one foot in the past and one in the future, it’s reasonable to expect the unexpected in their set list when they play the Phoenix on Monday night, June 30. Courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got one pair of passes to give away for the show so if you want to spend Canada Day eve getting your ears pummeled by some irascible Scots, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I will not feed Mogwai after midnight” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Get that in to me by 5PM tomorrow, June 26.
