Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Give the entire new disc a taste over on Spin.com -- it's definitely worth it. And then go check out the band tonight, when it stops through for a gig at The Nightmare. It should be a good one, too, featuring two promising local acts as the openers -- Garland's theatrically quirky Kiwi Sisters and former Sydney Confirm frontman Sean Humphrey's new electro garage pop project, Sunn Talk.

After the jump, give Sunn Talk's "Uncovered Mysteries" a much-merited listen and download. Oh, and find out how to win a free pair of passes to tonight's performances, courtesy of Parade of Flesh, which is bringing this show to town.

Want free passes to this show? OK: Just be the first person to email me, starting right now, with the words "Grin and Bear It" in the subject line. Good luck!
