I know it's a big holiday weekend and all, but, for most of us at least, there will be life after Saturday night. So you might as well start planning next week now.
This should help: The instrumental hard rock/metal purveyors in Pelican are stopping by for a gig on Monday at the Granada Theater. Last time the band stopped through town, I had this much to say:
Melodic and heavy (and never boring despite a lack of vocals), Pelican's performances are entrancing, to say the least.
Don't really have too much to add on that front--it's not like too much has changed in the past five months. Well, except that, this week, the band released its fourth studio album, What We All Come to Need.
And the Granada Theater's been kind enough to pass along five pairs to the band's Monday night performance. As such, we're gonna hand them out to the first five people to send me an email with "What We All Come To Need" in the subject line. Starting right now, in fact. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
