There's this band that I've been digging since their record came out this spring, and they're playing Bar Pink this Friday night. Since it's a free show, giving away tickets doesn't make sense, but you should check them out anyway.
Here's the bio:
NYC via Athens, GA alt-country punks The Weightare currently on a cross-country fall tour in support of their proper debut, Are Men (The Colonel/Tee Pee).
The Weight was founded by singer/composer Joseph Plunket, a veteran of the Atlanta, GA, punk rock scene who began writing material that reflected his love of country music and his respect for songwriters such as Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen. In 2004, the album Ten Mile Grace found the band conjuring up the sad but passionate sound of classic honky tonk, leavened with some Dixie-fried rock & roll and the introspective intelligence of vintage folk-rock. Shortly after, The Weight relocated to Brooklyn and started touring regularly, most recently partnering with The Colonel for the release of their proper debut, Are Men.
