There's not a weak spot to be found in the three-headed lineup that will pack Cambridge's TT the Bears on Wednesday, July 29th: An ace local opener in Faces on Film, followed by the one-two punch of their tourmates from divergent yet nearly equidistant locales: LA's Foreign Born and London's The Veils.
Any of these three bands would be worth shining a spotlight on, but it's UK quartet The Veils who get the blog-post-title-and-picture treatment this time around, thanks to a generous giveaway provided by their label: Two randomly chosen entrants will not only get guest listed (with a +1) at the TT's show, but will each get sent a vinyl copy (with download codes) of the band's third full-lengther, "Sun Gangs", released back in April on Rough Trade. Here's a taste...
[Mp3] The Veils - "The Letter"
Want in? Of course you do. Only one requirement - that you live close enough to Boston attend the show. If you do, send along an email to giveaways [at] bradleysalmanac [dot] com by 9am next Monday the 27th, entitle it "Veiled Interest", and let me know which town you live in. I'll pick two random winners from all entries, letting them know that day that their names will be on Wednesday's guest list, and each with a +1, and I'll arrange to have the vinyl sent along post-haste.
If you're not feeling fortunate, pick up tickets of your own to the show over here.
After the TTs gig, only four stops remain on The Veils co-headlining tour with Foreign Born, on which Faces on Film share all shows: NYC, Philly, DC, & Brooklyn. Listen to some more tracks from The Veils at MySpace, have a look at this "Sun Gangs" short film on YouTube, and check out a story and songs courtesy of NPR's All Things Considered.
