Win Tix To See The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser

Fourteen years after the release of Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Now Gone, The Walkmen have gone on ‘indefinite hiatus’ — which is a polite way of saying ‘We broke up but we could easily get back together for a tour or an album if the money’s right, or everything we try post-Walkmen utterly fails.’ Given the warm critical response to Walkmen singer Hamilton Leithauser’s 2014 solo debut Black Hours — an unlikely but uber-catchy collection of stately torch-songs, caffeinated power-pop and Stones-y country-rock hybrids, that features members of Vampire Weekend and The Shins), that’s not happening any time soon. So instead of holding your breath for the Walkmen reunion and dying trying, why not choose life and go see him at Underground Arts tomorrow night? On us. We just happen to have a pair of tickets that is burning a hole in our collective pocket. To qualify to win, all you have to do is sign up for our mailing list (see right, below the masthead).
