Contest: Win Tickets to See David Bazan on 7/8

Full album stream: David Bazan – Strange Negotiations

David Bazan, former creative force of Seattle’s Pedro the Lion, released his second full-length LP, Strange Negotiations, on May 24 via Barsuk Records. He’s currently touring the US (forgetting t-shirts along the way) and will be stopping by the Casbah on July 8 to delight the SD scene with his full beard and urgent yet comfortable melodies.

A mix of a dour Springsteen, a huskier Pete Yorn, and a more palatable Gaslight Anthem, Bazan is an artist complacently lost in time, somewhere in between the indie rock of the 90s and the “indie rock” of the aughts. And, as he has proven time and again, that’s a good place to be — Strange Negotations is the perfect summertime BBQ album, with a heartiness to complement your grass-fed beef or black bean burger.

If you’re in the mood for a “robust, loose performance” this summer, O&B is offering a pair of free tickets to the 7/8 Casbah show. For your chance to win, simply comment below and include your email address in the form (your email won’t be visible to the public). The two winners will be selected at random and contacted on July 7.
