Giveaway | 2 Tickets to See Goodnight, Texas at the Middle East 2/19

Goodnight Texas

[T]he good fellas of Goodnight Texas are coming to town next week and have given me the ok to award a few tickets to a lucky fan, as well as a vinyl copy of their record, A Long Life of Living, one of my favorite records from last year and one I think definitely belongs in your possession.

If you don’t know Goodnight Texas, let me give you the primer. Goodnight, Texas is a cross continental collaboration of Avi Vinocur and Patrick Wolf whose unlikely collaboration crosses a midpoint in the country, a town called Goodnight, Texas. Their music is based on stories of hardship, loss, broken relationships and life of post civil war Appalachia. It’s Appalachian folk style is a modern take on a historical music styling. The record is full of songs that make you sing, make you weep, and go for the repeat button again and again. Give it a listen up above (note Car Parts & Linens, Meet Me By the Smokestack and Jesse Got Trapped in a Coal Mine)

I spent a good part of the night with the band when they were here playing in what seemed like a secret barn deep within a neighborhood in Jamaica Plain. Next week, they bring their music to the Middle East upstairs for an evening of music with local favorites, Larcenist. I promise, if you haven’t seen this band live, you definitely should be at this show, and you can try to win a pair of tickets and a copy of the record below:
