One of my own personal favorite acts from SXSW '09, Brooklyn's Asobi Seksu returns to Denton this weekend to perform on a Sunday night bill at Hailey's with DC9 favorite Matthew and the Arrogant Sea. In this week's paper, contributor Shae Moseley breaks down the draw of Asobi Seksu (which means "casual sex" in Japanese):

Asobi Seksu has progressed and evolved over the course of three albums without straying too far from its core strengths: vocalist/keyboardist Yuki Chikudate's swooning falsetto melodies and James Hanna's otherworldly guitar-scapes. Continue reading...

And those strengths are strong, folks. Which is why we're stoked that the folks at Spune Productions have passed along a pair of tickets for us to hand out to one lucky DC9 reader. That person could be you, too, if you're the first to email me with the words "Casual Sex" written in the subject line, starting right now.. Good luck!

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner!
