I've got two pairs of tickets to give away for the Jay Reatard show this Wednesday night at the Echo. Opening the show is Cheap Time, who I'm very curious to check out. Matador Records is about to release the fifth (in a series of six) of Jay's limited edition 7" singles. Number five has Jay covering Deerhunter, with Deerhunter returning the favor on the backside. Both bands play hook-filled rock 'n' roll along the lines of the Dickies, the Queers or maybe Redd Kross. And both released records on the local label, In the Red.
To win these tickets email me [dukeufo at hotmail] with the name of your favorite punk band. Please put Reatard in the subject line. The contest closes Wednesday at Noon.
