Last time Matthew Houck performed in Dallas under his Phosphorescent moniker, it was back in July for a well-received show at the Kessler Theater. DC9's Kelly Dearmore was there, too. Here's part of his take on the night:
Matthew Houck and his five Phosphorescent bandmates took the stage at 11:20 p.m. and made a seriously direct point to make sure everyone knew what their latest (and kick-ass) record sounded like. Sporting a hairdo that can best be described as an indie-rock Krusty the Clown, Houck dispelled any notions that the band is a one-man show these days. Continue reading...
Tonight, when Houck brings his act back to town for a gig at The Loft you can pretty much expect more of the same -- and in a similarly (perhaps more so) intimate setting. You can also see it for free, courtesy of the folks over at the venue, who's been kind enough to give us some tickets to hand out to some lucky DC9 readers. Hit the jump to see how to win your free pair of tickets.
Want a free pair of tickets to tonight's show? OK. Just be among the first five people to email me, starting right now, with the words "Who's the Phoss?" in the subject line, and you're in. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
