Case in point: Xiu Xiu will bring its melodramatic experimental art-rock to The Cavern tonight, along with sound artist/filmmaker Sarah Lipstate's solo electronic soundscape project Noveller and San Antonio's Girl In A Coma.
Cover for the show is $12, but thanks to the generosity of booking company Spune, one lucky DC9 reader and his or her guest can get in free.
OK, so it's not a T-shirt hand-lettered with the band's own blood, but it's still a pretty sweet offer.
All you've got to do is be the first to e-mail me with the subject "Xiu Xiu For Life" and your full name somewhere in the email, and you and a friend will get in free.
