Massively talented and respected songwriter Josh Ritter returns to Madison on April 24 for a show at the Capitol Theater with a solo acoustic support set from Seawolf.   We wanted to remind readers that you can still take advantage of this wicked offer:

A ticket to dates on Josh Ritter’s upcoming Spring 2013 tour gets you more than entry to a show. Every ticket purchased automatically includes a digital version of his new album The Beast In Its Tracks. The album will be delivered directly to your inbox.

This is no small deal.  The album has been called “an impressive document of Ritter’s journey through an emotional storm,” and “Less expansive than 2010’s So Runs the World Away, yet still rich enough in atmosphere to make for a relatively seamless transition, Ritter doesn’t just sit at the end of his bed with a guitar and emote into a tape recorder.” Critics have praised it as one of his most heartfelt works to-date.

Beautiful.”

He’ll be performing in Madison at the Capitol Theater on April 24.   Got your tickets yet?

Free MP3 Download From Josh Ritter: “Change Of Time”

Josh Ritter

Sorry guys, no tickets giveaways this week, but don’t worry.  We’ll be back with ’em next Monday.  In the meantime, we want to get you pumped for one of this autumn’s most anticipated shows.

We’re pretty much geeked to the max thinking about Josh Ritter‘s upcoming Madison concert on Saturday, November 13th (get your tickets here).  This guy has a way with words, to put it mildly, and his latest release, So Runs The World Away, is a “unique collection of songs…borrowing characters from mythology, literature, and world history and letting them run wild in the increasingly adventurous, neo-traditional folk style that his become his forte over the last decade” (AllMusic).

Enjoy this free download, and then come see the man himself at The Majestic Theatre later this fall.  After all, as Paste magazine says, “He’s not the only one channeling the greats, but he does it better than almost anyone else today.”
