Vinyl giveaway, free show, burlesque dancers… Oh, and did I mention a vinyl giveaway?
Memphis bluesman Jason “Hex” Freeman is a singer-songwriter who seems to navigate the world of grimy guitar songs with ease. The results of his aural expeditions culminate in a gritty and edgy modern sound that often speaks through a filter of twangy early twentieth century blues. He’ll be releasing a collection of his tunes on vinyl this Friday, and we’ve got a copy to give away for the release. Getting a hold of one is easy, so why not throw your hat into the ring?
Friday marks the release of Freeman’s Hex & Hell at the Poplar Lounge. Because a record release needs proper celebration, burlesque dancers will be on hand to shimmy to the hexxy vibes. There will also be screenings of Freeman’s music videos, which tend to involve sexy women anyways, so yeah, come for some nit-grit blues and lots of really awesome curves you can look at—for the sake of music, of course.
So how can you get your hands on a copy yourself? It’s easy! In the comments below, tell us your favorite band that plays through a retro filter. Since I was 13 in 2001, I’m almost obligated to say The Strokes. (So, I will.)
A winner with a North American mailing address will be chosen on Monday, February 18.
