Airborne Toxic Event plays the Civic Theatre in New Orleans Saturday night and we’re giving away tickets.

“It was great … It’s a really nice studio, and they’ve got a lot of really nice gear: organs, synthesizers, literally hundreds of guitars. We were definitely experimenting, using different stuff that we wouldn’t have had access to in a normal studio. That was a big plus. And just the fact that it was in Chicago. It forced us to focus on recording the album. If we had been in New York, we probably would have been thinking about going home, our families, seeing our friends every night.” - Martin Courtney of Real Estate on recording Atlas in Wilco’s studio, “The Loft.” Real Estate plays One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans tonight.

At the House of Blues in New Orleans Oct. 18.

We’re giving away a pair of tickets to see Afghan Whigs Saturday in New Orleans at the Civic Theatre. Contest closes Friday at noon.

Washed Out’s Ernest Greene: “I don’t know if I’m just naturally a sad person or something. I wouldn’t say I’m a very upbeat person. I’m definitely not clinically depressed or anything. But I’m definitely very laid back.” - Washed Out plays the House of Blues in New Orleans Wednesday.
