Giveaway: A Pair Of Tickets To Tonight's Hope Sandoval Show At Sons of Hermann Hall
Rather, I think, you'll see something a little more interesting: an interview with the Mazzy Star singer's current musical and household partner Colm O'Ciosoig, better known to many as the drummer of My Bloody Valentine. Written by Observer contributor Doug Davis, the story focuses not on the shy Sandoval so much as it does on the similarly shy O'Ciosoig's work with her--something that's a far cry from his My Bloody Valentine creations.
But among the things you really should know about the two and their current tour is this: Tonight's show isn't just a chance to see a couple highly regarded musicians in an intimate environment; it's also a chance to see them in their preferred environment. As such, for the bulk of their current tour, Sandoval and her backing band The Warm Inventions (which consists of O'Ciosoig and opening act Dirt Blue Gene) have solely been playing small venues--and getting rave reviews, even in the face of poor sound quality.
So, yes, tonight's show should be quite the treat.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner.
