Giveaway: Freelance Whales at The Loft

10 Nov

Monday afternoon, on the drive back from Austin, I listened to a Freelance Whales session that was featured on World Cafe on KXT.

I had never listened to the band, although I knew there was recent buzz around them. But they were captivating, and I can only imagine what they’re like in person. It made me even more eager to post this giveaway for a pair of tickets to their show at The Loft on Friday.

To enter, send an email with “Freelance Whales” in the subject line and your full name in the body to giveaways@daybowbow.net by Thursday at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be notified on Friday.

Freelance Whales play the Loft on Friday, November 12, with openers Miniature Tigers and Generationals. Tickets are 12 bucks.

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti / Puro Instinct @ Hailey’s

Listen, all the info you could ever want about Ariel Pink has been provided by other sites, and they have done one hell of a job doing so. I suggest you listen to them and make it a point to catch this show.

Miniature Tigers / The Spinto Band / MATAS @ The Loft

Hey, kids, be prepared to get over yourselves and love the new MATAS record when it hits. I heard the mixes recently and was blown away, as the band has taken their game up three or four levels to deliver one of the better releases coming out at the end of the year.

Dunes / True Widow / The Bizzaro Kids @ The Nightmare

The Bizzaro Kids’ blend of visuals and music is one of the most exciting things going on in the area that almost nobody knows about. Make it a point to catch these guys and rethink your view on what can be done with a three-piece band.
