Tonight, Trees offers a pretty nice break from the early booking tendencies over at the storied, recently re-opened venue, as an all-local bill of Hoyotoho (performing DJ sets throughout the night), They Were Stars, The Orbans and Hendrick all come together on Elm Street to partake in a show celebrating the CD release of a new-ish local act, Dovetail.
Though a four-piece, there's really no need to kid yourself about what Dovetail is--a carefully compiled collection of musicians and sounds meant to surround and complement frontman Philip Creamer's impressive leading pipes. And the handful of tracks on the EP being celebrated this evening (called Love is War) no doubt showcase as much. After the jump, check out the title track from the disc for a sampling and, ah hell, go ahead and grab it as a free download, too, courtesy of the band.
Before we jump, though, the company behind tonight's show, Method Entertainment, has been kind enough to offer one reader two free tickets to tonight's show. So, on that note, first person to email me with "Love is a Battlefield" gets themselves and a friend into the show for free.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner.
