Ticket Giveaway: The Mynabirds at The Firebird!
I was trying to come up with some “Put a bird on it” pun related to the MynaBIRDs playing at The FireBIRD on July 1st, but I’ll spare you all for the time being and cut to the “free stuff” chase.
You know Laura Burhenn’s Mynabirds from one of my favorite-ly (not a word) titled songs, “What We Gained in the Fire” off 2010′s lauded What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood. Burhenn is back this year with a politically-charged, totally-worth-digging-into sophomore LP, GENERALS, behind which she’s currently touring.
Leave us a comment below for a chance for you and a pal to check out Mynabirds for free this Sunday in St. Louis, but act fast – the contest closes at 10am tomorrow. Don’t forget to include a valid email.
NOTES and BONUSES:
Speakers in Code did a nice interview with Burhenn recently. Do check it out.
Opening for Mynabirds is new-to-me STL band Arthur and the Librarian. I’m listening to their album on Bandcamp right now, and I dig them so far. Show up early enough to check ‘em out – then you’ll get to be that annoying kid in your group of friends who discovered a new band first and subtly brags about it.
