Giveaway: Two Pairs of Tickets For Tonight's Phosphorescent Show At The Kessler
|Unfortunately, Willie Nelson will not be joining Phosphorescent at tonight's show. But chances are you'll hear a Willie song or two.|
...Phosphorescent's Matthew Houck is that rare musician almost everyone can agree on, whether they're pretentious indie-rockers or stubbornly twangy Americana fans. The recently released Here's To Taking It Easy sees Houck settling into a comfortable, softly psychedelic groove with his road band, mixing SoCal country-rock rave-ups with Kristofferson-worthy weepers -- "The Mermaid Parade" is easily one of the best break-up laments in recent memory -- to create Houck's fourth straight masterpiece.
Tickets are $12 to $14, available at Good Records or through Front Gate. And, says the Kessler's Jeff Liles, there's a good chance it could sell out, much as he hates the thought of turning anyone away.
Update: Contest over. Congratulations to our winners.
