The Boxmasters are a country band--one that, yes, happens to be fronted by one Billy Bob Thornton. And, though the former Mr. Angelina Jolie may not want you to consider his acting when considering his band's music, well, it's pretty tough not to, all things considered.
Surprisingly enough, though, the band's been able to amass some critical praise for its 2008, self-titled release. And, to its credit, the outfit's been touring like a mofo since that release.
The band's current jaunt finds it playing The Loft this evening, and our friends at AEG Live have been kind enough to pass along a few tickets to the affair. Want in to tonight's show for free, if only to satiate your curiosity? OK: Shoot me an email right now with the words "Mr. Woodcock" in the subject line.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
