Giveaway: Three Pairs of Tickets to Tomorrow Night's Owen Pallett Show at the Granada
In this week's paper (out now in some places, tomorrow at others and online soon), Catherine Downes tackles the topic of Owen Pallett , the artist formerly known as
Final Fantasy . Tomorrow night at the Granada, Pallett comes to town in support of his January-released debut under his new moniker, Heartland . Here's Downes' take:
Before Heartland's January release Pallett hadn't dropped a full-length album since He Poos Clouds in 2006. But, now, with a new extensive full-length in tow, Pallett is back on the music front with what arguably may be his best album yet. It's a theatrical, skillfully orchestrated release, and, at times, Pallett's voice finds itself almost indistinguishable from that of Beirut's Zach Condon--and that's definitely not a bad thing.
Last time Pallett was in town, he was the opening act for a sold-out Arcade Fire performance. This time, he'll be headlining--and deservedly so.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
