Super-quick Giveaway: Annuals and Manchester Orchestra

By Tankboy in Miscellaneous on Nov 5, 2007 10:45PM

2007_11_manchester_orchestr.gifThe Annuals have garnered our praise in the past, and they're coming though town tomorrow with Manchester Orchestra (a band that is neither orchestral, nor Mancunian). We're not as familiar with Manchester Orchestra as we are The Annuals, but from what we've heard we expect their catchy indie-pop will go over well. They're music is plaintive yet rejoicing, and we find the mixture alluring.

To commemorate the groups' touring together they're put together a split 7" featuring each covering on of the other's songs. You can only get them at the shows ... unless you know us! We have 2 tickets to tomorrow's show at Subterranean, AND a copy of the 7", to give away, so enter for your chance to win after the jump..

Annuals and Manchester Orchestra play an all-ages show at Subterranean tomorrow night at 7 p.m., and tickets are still available.
