Win Tickets To The Flat Five At The Tractor!

Win Tickets To The Flat Five At The Tractor!

Intoducing The Flat Five - a supergroup of sorts made up of Kelly Hogan and Nora O'Connor (who have sang with Neko Case, Decemberists, Iron and Wine, Mavis Staples, Andrew Bird and have successful solo careers of their own); Alex Hall (who plays with JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, Robbie Fulks and many more) and Scott Ligon and Casey McDonough of NRBQ! Their new album, It’s a World of Love and Hope, was recently released by Bloodshot Records. In his review of the album, Ed Whitelock of PopMatters.com describes one song as "pure bubblegum and butterflies: happy campfire singing arranged around chiming guitars and a spry backbeat" and notes the album's "overwhelming positivity & uplift." He concludes by writing, "The Flat Five have made a record that evokes the innocence of another era while acknowledging the artifice of such nostalgia. At the end of the day, it’s the music that matters, and this is really good stuff. Let go and ride along with the album’s pleasant vibe. You won’t be disappointed."

The Flat Five are coming to the Tractor Tavern on January 11th. Enter to win a pair of guest list spots and a copy of the new album by e-mailing us with the subject line "Bubblegum & Butterflies" and please include first and last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 1/9. Good luck! Winner must be able to pick up vinyl at our store in West Seattle.
