CONTEST – Damien Jurado @ The Drake Underground – April 14, 2009
Brooke FitsDamien Jurado is a big guy. At first glance, certainly not the sort of guy you’d expect to deal in songs such as his, full of frailty and heartbreak, but it just goes to show you can’t… I don’t believe I’m going to use this phrase… judge a book by its cover. But with his latest release, last year’s Caught In The Trees, it seems Jurado is adding a new chapter to that book, one with brighter tones and tempos and perhaps a lighter mood. The plot is unchanged from one of dark, aching beauty, but at least the setting has shifted a bit.
Jurado is taking his show on the road this Spring accompanied by Laura Gibson and will be at the Drake Underground in Toronto next Tuesday night, April 14. And courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got a pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Damien Jurado” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and get that to me by midnight Sunday, April 12.
