CONTEST – Low @ The Great Hall – March 16, 2013
Zoran OrlicWho: Low
What: Duluth, Minnesota three-piece still too-often pigeonholed as slow-core pioneers but who’ve arguably been one of the more adventurous bands of recent years, able to completely invert their sound without compromising their strengths.
Why: Their tenth studio album The Invisible Way is maybe the most warmest and most stripped-down effort since 2002’s Trust, with producer Jeff Tweedy bringing the focus on those aforementioned strengths: Mimi Parker and Alan Sparkhawk’s voices, Sparhawk’s guitar, and their songwriting.
When: Saturday, March 16, 2013
Where: The Great Hall in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Dublin’s Autumn Owls are in town a bit early for CMW and will open up.
How: Tickets for the show are $18.50 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, 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 get Low” in the subject line and your full name in the body and have that in to me by midnight, March 13.
What else: Time Out reports from a Q&A with the band and Tweedy about the making of the record.
