Show Preview: Jamie Lidell @ Antones (9/24)

Date Friday, September 24th
Location Antones
Doors 800p
Tickets $17 from Frontgate

Jamie Lidell is one of those musicians you can’t ever really pinpoint.  It seems that his influences and his productions are going all over the place, but you rarely hear people say a bad thing about any of it.  He’s touring in support of his latest record Compass, which features loads of guest stars that we know you adore.  Sure, they won’t all be at Antones on Friday night, but we know one killer act that will be, and that’s Twin Shadow.  This guy has been exploding all over the place for quite some time, and you will want to catch his show before he’s too big for his own britches. Here’s a track to get you stoked.

Contest: Local Natives 7″ and Secrets!

This should be a show post about the killer evening of tunes over at Antones Friday featuring Local Natives and Suckers (2 of our favorites this year).  But, instead, we’ve got something for you.  We’re running a little contest to win a free Local Natives “Sun Hands” 7″.  All you have to do is leave us a comment telling us what your favorite album of the year is, besides Local Natives (as that should be near the top), and don’t forget to leave a valid email address in the email portion of your comment.  We’ll pick the winner by tomorrow morning and take care of the rest.

Oh, and our top secret spies tell us that the first person to buy Gorilla Manor starting today at Waterloo Records wins two free tickets.  Get over their now.  And be sure to show up early as you’ll love the Suckers too!
