Contest: White Arrows at Red 7

Alright y'all, I'm not going to pretend like there's nothing else going on Thursday night but I also don't want this show to get swept under the rug. With Fiona Apple, Beach House and The Walkmen all playing Austin on Thursday I know a lot of you already have plans. Well, this show doesn't necessarily interfere with those plans! White Arrows play Red 7 and they won't take the stage until after Stubb's has emptied. Their latest record, Dry Land is Not a Myth is full of psychedlic-indie-dance jams that are sure to get your booty workin'. Tickets for this show are only $8 but one of you will have their name on the guestlist with a +1. All you have to do is e-mail Contest[at] with your name and a winner will be chosen at "random." Random is in quotation marks because those of you I see promoting this show/contest on Twitter and Facebook are more likely to win.

Young Buffalo will play the set before White Arrows Thursday night and you may recall that I featured them as one of my bands to catch at SXSW 2012. So far these guys have only released an EP but it was one of my favorite EPs last year and it represents everything I love about indie-rock: soaring melodies, jangly rhythms and tunes that make you question why they're not famous whilst reaffirming your hatred for modern rock radio.

Local, optimistic rockers Field Dress will be playing the first set at Red 7 Thursday night. Don't forget to e-mail Contest[at] for your chance to attend this show on me. The winner will be notified via e-mail on Wednesday!
