In this week's print edition, Observer contributor Doug Davis talked shop with indie rock chanteuse Natasha Khan, or, as he puts it, "the wildly creative force behind Bat for Lashes."
It's a great interview, explaining the British Khan's love/hate relationship with America, and how that relationship helped shape the idea behind her most recent critically acclaimed full-length, Two Suns--go read it, if you haven't yet.
And then shoot me an email with "Bat For Tickets" in the subject line. If you're one of the first two people to do that, you and a friend are seeing Khan at the Loft tonight for free, courtesy the fine folks over at that venue. So, y'know, good luck. You're gonna need it, too, as I expect these tickets to go in a heartbeat...
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
