Giveaway: Two Tickets To See The Mountain Goats Tomorrow Night at the Granada Theater



I don't know the story behind The Mountain Goats' song "The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton" (hear it in the above clip). I wish I did--for fairly obvious, curious reasons. But, far as I can tell, we've never covered it. And a cursory Google search isn't turning up any other reasonings, so... well, boo on that. We do have a pretty in-depth look in this week's paper, however, on the increasingly biblical lyricism of frontgoat John Darnielle's output. Check it out; it's worth the read for fans of the band.

And check this out, too: Thanks to the folks at the Granada Theater, we've got a couple pairs of tickets to have out to the band's performance here in town tomorrow night. Want 'em? OK: Be among the first two people to email me right now with the words "The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton" in the subject line. First two people to do so get the tickets. Good luck!

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners.
