There are two concerts going on 6/18 and I have a pair of tickets for each of them to give away to two lucky winners. The first band is the Dirty Projectors at Somerville Theatre and the second band is Low Anthem at the Brattle. Here's a little bit about each of the bands.

Providence, Rhode Island-based The Low Anthem celebrates the Nonesuch Records release of their previously self-released Oh My God, Charlie Darwin with a show at the Brattle Theatre. This trio of multi- instrumentalists plays languid, elegant music that is truly American.

The Low Anthem's Nonesuch debut offers an elegant and original take on Americana. The simple, folk-like structures of its songs are distinguished by hushed, hymn-like, chamber-music arrangements—as well as by the occasional, deliriously free-spirited acoustic rave-up. They have drawn comparisons to Tom Waits, Simon & Garfunkel, The Band, Grant Lee Buffalo, and the Scud Mountain Boys.

Fresh from a US tour with TV on the Radio and an appearance at Bonnaroo, the Dirty
Projectors, the Brooklyn-based vehicle for musical visionary David Longstreth, tour with an expanded six member lineup in support of their June 2009 release of Bitte Orca, their fifth full length album and first for Domino Records. Art rock with African, punk and R&B influences, the music of The Dirty Projectors is difficult to categorize, but names like David Byrne and Prince have been used as comparisons.

So, same rules as always. Send me an email with the name of the band that you want to see in the subject heading (Dirty Projectors or Low Anthem). Or if you wouldn't mind hearing either band, put both band names in the subject heading and I'll enter you in both drawings.

I'm going to do a separate drawing for each band. Oh, and in the body of the email, put your first and last name - I'll be submitting the winner's name to be put on the will call list of each concert.

Contest ends: Monday 6/15 @ 10pm EDT.
