Giveaway: Two Pairs of Tickets to Tomorrow Night's Frightened Rabbit Show at The Loft
It's a tough week to make a case for a rock show--what with some baseball team clogging up most locals' night-time plans and all--but The Loft's got a compelling argument tomorrow night when it hosts Frightened Rabbit in its friendly confines. The Scottish indie rock outfit made quite the splash with its breakout 2008 release, The Midnight Organ Fight, which set the tone for the heartfelt rockers' equally compelling 2010 follow-up, The Winter of Mixed Drinks.
In this week's paper, Chris Martins talks that new disc in anticipation of tomorrow night's show:
Songs like "Swim Until You Can't See Land" [see above] and "Living in Colour" go a great way toward illustrating the record's feel and theme: a hopeful exuberance seemingly inspired by a need to leave something dark behind. Hand claps, shakers, spiky guitars and the yearning vocals of Scott Hutchison all play heavily into that vibe, which moves listeners quite deftly through a filler-less collection of emotion-bearing tunes.

And thanks to the folks at The Loft, we've got a couple of pairs of tickets to give away to the affair. Hit the jump to find out how to win.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
