Country caravan Son Volt are coming to the 9:30 Club, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to giveaway. It’s crazy easy to get in the running, so if you dig on some hearty folk music, you’ve got no excuse to miss out.
Singer-songwriter Jay Farrar started Son Volt in 1994 after the demise of Uncle Tupelo, the alt-country band that also counted Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy as a principal songwriter. Through the mid- to late-’90s, Son Volt created a name for themselves with no-frills folk/country spanning an aesthetic gap from Bob Dylan to Crazy Horse.
On the heels of releasing their 8th album Honky Tonk, Son Volt is out spreading the good word on new material and old fan favorites. So how can you get your hands on tickets to see them deliver a slow evening?
It’s simple! In the comments below, tell us your favorite alt-country band. I think I’ll go with the aforementioned Wilco.
The winner will be chosen at noon tomorrow, June 19. Tickets are still available.
