Here’s your chance to get a pair of free tickets to a most excellent show coming up in Louisville. Welsh rockers The Joy Formidable and New York indie rock collective Drowners (who also has a member of Welsh decent) will be playing Wednesday, June 8th at Mercury Ballroom, and while tickets are currently being sold at 15 bucks a pop, wouldn’t it be better if you were required to pay zero dollars? You bet your ass it would, because FREE IS AWESOME!
I had the chance to watch The Joy Formidable perform a few years ago at Forecastle, and I must say they put on one hell of a memorable, energetic show (see above video for evidence). Singer/guitarist Rhiannon “Ritzy” Bryan is truly a force to be reckoned with, making her the main attraction for me personally. Their new record Hitch is out now, and I’m here to tell you that it’s fucking awesome and absolutely worth your time. Listen to it here, then enter to win your tickets below:
