Giveaway: A Pair Of Tickets To Tonight's Hope Sandoval Show At Sons of Hermann Hall

In this week's print edition of DC9, you won't see an interview with Hope Sandoval.

Rather, I think, you'll see something a little more interesting: an interview with the Mazzy Star singer's current musical and household partner Colm O'Ciosoig, better known to many as the drummer of My Bloody Valentine. Written by Observer contributor Doug Davis, the story focuses not on the shy Sandoval so much as it does on the similarly shy O'Ciosoig's work with her--something that's a far cry from his My Bloody Valentine creations.

But among the things you really should know about the two and their current tour is this: Tonight's show isn't just a chance to see a couple highly regarded musicians in an intimate environment; it's also a chance to see them in their preferred environment. As such, for the bulk of their current tour, Sandoval and her backing band The Warm Inventions (which consists of O'Ciosoig and opening act Dirt Blue Gene) have solely been playing small venues--and getting rave reviews, even in the face of poor sound quality.

So, yes, tonight's show should be quite the treat. Which is why we're excited to present you with this treat, as well: The folks behind the show, Mike Snider and Lance Yocom (the latter of Spune Productions), have offered us a pair of tickets to hand out to one DC9 reader. And that could be you--if you're the first person to email me right now with the words "A New Hope" in the subject line. Good luck!

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner.
