The War on Drugs
On Saturday, September 27th, The War on Drugs, supported by Califone, will be playing at House of Blues Houston!
The War on Drugs have been around for awhile, but recently they’ve received a great deal of buzz due to their most recent album, this year’s Lost In the Dream, which has received rave reviews from nearly every major publication that’s reviewed it, and it’s sure to turn up on many year-end best-of lists. Their unique blend of dream pop and Springsteen-esque heartland rock has captivated listeners, and they’re looking to captivate you this weekend.
Supporting The War on Drugs is alt-country/psychedelic folk band Califone. Califone has been one of the more underrated and consistently great acts of the 21st century, and are more than capable of headlining their own shows. To call them support feels a bit weird. This show is more of a double headliner. If by chance you haven’t heard of Califone, you may know of member Tim Rutili from his work with Ugly Casanova, his old side project with Issac Brock from Modest Mouse. An over-simplified description of Califone’s sound might go something like “a darker, more ambitious Wilco”.
We have three (yeah, three!) pairs (yeah, pairs!) of tickets for this show to give away! We’ll be giving them away on Thursday, September 25th, by means of a few very simple contests through the new Some Weird Sin twitter page, which you can follow at @sws_coogradio.
