It's a relatively rare occasion that the gents from Centro-matic make their way from Denton, Texas up to Boston to treat us to a set of songs, but last week's release of "Candidate Waltz" has them on the road and in town for a show at Allston's Great Scott tomorrow night. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Will Johnson his band have put out one of the strongest records of their 16-year run, so I'm especially psyched to see them run through this new stuff. Not that I won't also be hoping for a heaping helping of older songs, o'course.
Thanks to the generous Great Scott, I've got a pair of guest list spots to catch Centro-matic with Texas-based tourmate Sarah Jaffe and an opening solo set from Township's Marc Pinansky. And for the random winner, I'll throw in a copy of Centro-matic's new "Candidate Waltz" on CD, compliments of Undertow, the band's truly excellent label.
To enter, send off a quick email to giveaways [at] bradleysalmanac [dot] com, throw "C-M" in the subject line, and include your full name. Get it to me before Noon on Wednesday, when I'll pick one winner for the two spots and let Great Scott know to add them the list. The catch: don't enter if you can't make it to the show, 'cuz that's where I'll be putting a copy of their new disc in your happy little hands.
Pick up tickets of your own right here. Prep for the show by listening to an excellent new NPR interview with Will Johnson, and have a look at the video for "Candidate Waltz" track "Only In My Double Mind"...
