Another post, another giveaway. One of these days I'll get around to posting actual content instead of just handing out free stuff. Not that the winners are complaining, mind you...
This Saturday night, being the 10th of April, 2010, Mr. Ted Leo and his fellow Pharmacists come back to Boston to showcase tracks from their first full-length for Matador Records, "The Brutalist Bricks". But instead of hitting their usual spot downstairs at the Middle East, they're back at the Paradise for the first time since 2006. And to headline a pretty killer lineup: White hot power trio Screaming Females (whose frontwoman, Marissa Paternoster, blew me away with her guitar work last year opening for Throwing Muses) and the excellent Obits (anchored by former Hot Snakes/Jehu singer/guitarist Rick Froberg). Either of those bands could've headlined their own Boston-area shows, so the fact that we get to see all of them in one night, on one stage, is a minor musical miracle. Something not to be taken for granted.
The show is very nearly sold-out, but I've got a pair of tickets to bequeath to a loyal reader (or, really, any casual surfer-by) thanks to LiveNation. Instructions are as usual - send a digital note to giveaways [at] bradleysalmanac [dot] com before 1pm on Friday, two short days from now. Just put "Pick (Timorous) Me!" in the subject field and let me know what town you live in, then on Friday I'll randomly choose and contact a winner who will be on Saturday night's Paradise guest list with a +1 for a pal.
Tickets of your own can be purchased here (for the moment), or at the 'Dise box office if you hurry. Oh, and be safe by arriving early to the show, so you don't miss a moment of either opener.
