Madison Concert Ticket Giveaway: Justin Townes Earle

Justin Townes Earle

One of country music’s most respected sons is returning to Madison next Tuesday (May 8, 2012) for a show at the Barrymore Theatre. Uncut magazine remarks that Justin Townes Earle‘s latest release, Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now, ” shimmers in spare arrangements, ghostly keyboards, textured horns, and, occasionally, a talking-style vocal style borrowed from Springsteen’s Nebraska.”  Not bad, eh?

We’re giving away a pair of tickets to Justin’s can’t-miss show after the jump.   Read on to find out how you could land a spot on our guest list.

Just Weird Enough: The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy Talks Art + Win A Pair Of Tickets

Decemberists photo

The Decemberists have always been a “weird” band. Dressed in old-time tuxedos, goth gowns, and hair tonic, The Decemberists look like a photo album from the 1800’s. Eeriness hangs over their promo shots like the old family photos in a Hitchcock film.

The Decemberists are not weird in a bizarre manner (like Lady Gaga). They are not weird in an overly artistic manner (like David Bowie). By no means are they beyond weird (like Gary Busey). But they are just weird enough to be the Pixies of the 00’s. And they’ve grown a little tired of it.

“We knew people might have a hard time getting into it,” said principal songwriter Colin Meloy about the old English folk sound of past albums. “Once we were on stage at Bonnaroo or wherever, I just kind of wanted to play some normal songs.”

Their latest effort, The King is Dead, does just that, embodying the alternative of R.E.M. with the anthemic Americana of Tom Petty. The songs stay simple, and they’re better for it.
