We've extolled the virtues of John Iskander and hisParade of Flesh
booking companymore than a few times in our pages
, and deservedly so. Just take a gander atthe calendar of shows he's bringing to town in the next few months
--impressive stuff, featuring performances from the likes of Harlem, Film School, The Soft Pack, Those Darlins, Women, Land of Talk, Colour Revolt and others at various venues.
He also keeps a keen eye out on the free stuff the folks who come to his shows can score--and, yesterday, he passed along word to DC9 of two such free swag grabs. On Tuesday, September 21, at The Loft, when he hosts Radio Moscow and Black Tusk's tour through town, the first fans through the door will receive a free silkscreen poster for the show (see the image after the jump). And, at October 28's Colour Revolt show, fans who buy tickets in advance will get a free download copy, the band's new album, The Cradle, if they bring their receipt and a photo ID to the merch booth.

But Iskander's also giving one lucky DC9 reader another pretty awesome treat on his own: He's offering one person the chance to catch each of his remaining September shows for free--a list of shows that includes tonight's Harlem show, the aforementioned Black Tusk show, and performances from Film School, Torche, Jeff The Brotherhood, Ty Segall and others.
