Win Tickets to Celebrate New Years Eve with Pickwick at the Showbox
In this blog’s short life the month of December has generally been a dead month of few enticing shows scheduled. Not so this December with Allen Stone, Mountain Goats, The Cave Singers, and David Bazan all headlining various dates, a double-dose of the Moondoggies and Maldives Christmas Special, a Sufjan Stevens holiday special, and Ty Segall and Moon Duo hitting town within days of each other. For us though the culmination of the month and the year will be Pickwick‘s return to a Seattle stage after nearly a year of hibernation and machinations toward building their first full-length. The inclusion of Radiation City and Tomten elevates this dessert to the level of Phineas Q. Butterfat’s “The Ark.”
As of last week the record is done and off to mastering and the band has begun teasing their basement creation with three youtube vignettes so far and a call-in number to preview a few measures of what’s to come. They’ve risen to prominence with some soul fire, but as I’ve come to understand R&B is really just a touching off point for their own grittier experiments. Those of us who’ve ventured out of Seattle to get our fix after their Sasquatch mainstage appearance or came out for their Jason Molina covers at will have strongly gotten the hint already.
Courtesy of the Showbox, we’re giving away two pairs of tickets to the night’s festivities. Each pair of tickets comes with two “swag bags” that include two drink tickets (good for beer, wine, house champagne or a single-shot cocktail), party favors and a commemorative poster signed by the band. Drop your name and a legit email in the comments and we’ll randomly choose two winners at noon, Thursday December 13th.
Staying in on New Years Eve is just sad. Don’t be “That Guy.” Snag tickets ahead of time via showboxonline.com.
