Man, have we got a deal for you! PS I Love You is playing a gig next Tuesday night (3/1) at the Mohawk (indoors), and we’re fortunate enough to have a pair of tickets to give you absolutely free. But, not only are we offering you tickets to this excellent show, but we’re also going to be giving away the brand new “Leftovers” single 7″, which is a split with Diamond Rings. Both bands have gotten loads of praise already, and it seems like their stars are only going to be rising higher and higher in 2011. All you need to do is leave a comment telling us which band you’re most excited to see at SXSW, and we’ll pick our favorite end of day Saturday (2/26). Oh, and speaking of SXSW, PS I Love You will be back for the festival as well, so stay tuned for more news on the band’s travel itinerary, but for now plan on meeting us at the Mohawk next week. Below is a sneak peak at a track from the new 7″.

It’s the giving time of year and we here at ATH would like to spread some sweet love to our readers with an end of the year/holiday contest. Two, count em two, lucky winners will receive a hand packaged and sealed gift bag from us filled with all kinds of musical goodness. Expect to receive promo CDs(yes good ones), 7″ & 12″ records from national and local artists(at least one album from our year end list), stickers, koozies, buttons, chapstick, hugs, and anything else we can scrounge up from around the office. I’d probably value each one at around $5,000. To enter, leave us a comment or hit us up on twitter with your favorite holiday song. Winners will be anounced come Monday. Don’t forget to leave a valid email address so we can get in touch with you. It’s the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.
