Win Tix to Mudhoney with Japanese Motors & Model/Actress, 11/14!

The venerable 20-year-career of Mudhoney has brought it to the here & now with their latest album, “The Lucky Ones,” recorded in just 3 and a half days, and the album’s aggressive and visceral, very raw & rhythm-focused. Great stuff. They play what should be a great show this Friday with newcomers Japanese Motors, whose “Single Fins & Safety Pins” single has been on heavy rotation at Indie 103.1 (and I can’t decide if I like it or not yet, although it’s certainly charming). Model/Actress supports. So, alt-rock fankids-cum-grownup Gen Xers, now’s your chance to see Mudhoney! For tickets, tell me your favorite thing about the band in the comments below. We have a few pairs of tickets to give out, so we’ll randomly choose some winners.
