Don't let Murder By Death's name scare you. They are a rock/indie/americana band with a deep, brooding sound. They have toured with bands like Lucero and Against Me! You can check out their music on their Bandcamp page here.
I randomly caught a Man Man show a couple years ago in Chicago and it instantly turned me into a big fan of them. Even without ever hearing them before, you instantly have fun and get into it. They are along the lines of a Gogol Bordello/gypsy rock kind of sound (a little less on the gypsy than Gogol Bordello), and who doesn't love Start Wearing Purple?
This is sure to be a great show. Tickets are $14 advance, $16 day of and doors are at 8 p.m. And to make it even better, thanks to the lovely ladies at Black Iris Booking, we're giving you a chance to win tickets!
