In the paper that comes out either tonight or tomorrow, depending on where your go-to rack stands in our distribution route, contributor Adam Perry geeks out all over St. Vincent--and particularly the above track "Jesus Saves, I Spend," calling it "one of the most memorable turns of phrase from the past few years of original rock music."
But, surely, seeing us geek out over Dallas native Annie Clark is nothing new for DC9 readers at this point.
So, let's just cut to the chase: Thanks to the fine folks over at the Granada Theater, where Annie is stopping by to perform tomorrow night alongside Pattern Is Movement, we've got five pairs of tickets to give away to our readers. Want in? Email me right now with the phrase "Jesus Saves, and I do too" in the subject line, and we'll save you some dough and get you and a friend into the show--assuming you're one of the first five people to hit me up. So have at it. And good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our fast-emailing winners.
