In many ways, that song, a pleasant ditty about the emotional release found in one's record collection (see it accompanying music video above), remains Rae's calling card.
But, now, four years after the fact, Rae's got a new album on her hands--the January-released The Sea--and, as such, she's returned to the States, ready to promote. Which explains why she's in town tonight, performing a gig at the Granada Theater.
And the kind folks over there have been kind enough to pass along a couple of pairs of tickets to tonight's affair free of charge to our readers. Want one of them? Shoot me an email right now with the words "Rae of Light" in the subject line, and, assuming you're among the first two to do so, you and a friend are seeing this show tonight for free. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
