Giveaway: A Pair Of Tickets To Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit Tonight At Longhorn Saloon

This week's Observer includes a piece by Chris Gray describing Jason Isbell as an old soul, and describing the Stones influence on Isbell's latest album, apropos of his show with his band The 400 Unit and openers Macon Greyson tonight at the Longhorn Saloon in Fort Worth.

Writes Gray, "Exhausted closer 'The Last Song I Will Write' can't help but echo 'Moonlight Mile' on The Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers--both songs finish off albums about the precarious relationship between duty, excess and maturity in bouts of protracted, frustrated guitar-beating. Luckily, those same Stones are also watching over rockers 'However Long,' 'Good' and 'Soldiers Get Strange,' so there are quite a few kicks to be had here too."

Thanks to Spune, you can go for free if you are the first to e-mail me with the subject "Sticky Unit." Be sure to include your first and last name.

Update: Contest over. Congrats to the winner.
