Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

{The Mountain Goats / by Chrissy Piper}

You read that right: the Mountain Goats are coming back to the Showbox (yay!) and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away (double yay!) to one lucky winner.

Lucky enough to have a Seattle stop on the schedule in the middle of a smattering of dates — there’s less than two dozen stateside shows on the docket from now until early August — our fair city will be seeing some of our favorite boys down on 1st Ave. this coming Thursday, June 16th. They’re this leg of the tour with openers Midtown Dickens, who are promised to be a stomping good time. And whether you’re a fan of the recent release All Eternals Deck, or if your heart belongs to 2009’s The Life of the World to Come — from our experience, the show promises to bring a great cross-section of the Mountain Goats’ current and back catalog to the gritty dirt of the stage.

But enough waxing on — here’s the details on how to win! Just send an email to tig {at} threeimaginarygirls {dot} com sometime before 3pm on Wednesday, June 15th with the subject line “HopeRealHardMaybeThenSproutWings.” We’ll pick a winner and notify you before the end of the day, and you and your +1 will be set for the show! And if you don’t want to risk it — which we can totally dig — just mosey on over to the Showbox site for the event and pick up some tickets. Either way — we hope to see you at the Showbox.
