Back in September, I covered The Barr Brothers‘ phenomenal set at Mercury Lounge. Since then, I’ve featured them as a Band of the Week and caught two of their CMJ performances at Arlene’s Grocery and Rockwood Music Hall and remain impressed. Each show is impeccable with layered guitar textures, glistening harp interludes and heart-pounding percussion, not to mention frontman Brad Barr’s captivating vocals.
Next week, the Montreal-based band will be back in NYC for two gigs: Wednesday, December 7th at Joe’s Pub and Thursday, December 8th at Union Pool in Brooklyn. Lucky for you, I have a pair of tickets to their Joe’s Pub show to give away!
For your chance to win tickets to their show Wednesday in New York, e-mail me with the answer to the question below. Good luck!
