It's about time Bowerbirds paid a visit to Denton. Bowerbirds' organic rhythms -- not to be confused with crude strumming, but rather subtle arrangements and raw energy, easily surpass those of Devendra Banhart or Beirut
Inspiration must come easy for founding members, Phil Moore and Beth Tacular, through living off the power grid in an Airstream in the North Carolina woods. Most of their songs connect to the tensions and relationships of man to nature and men to women.
While Bowerbirds' music might best be listened to just as it was created -- off the grid -- hearing them for free has got to be a close second. And since they have a show tonight at Hailey's in Denton, and since we have a pair of tickets, you have just that opportunity.
Be the first to send us an email with your name and the subject line "Go Primitive," and the tickets are yours. Good luck! Contest is over, congratulations to our winner.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
