It is with extreme pleasure that The Second Disc presents its first-ever giveaway, courtesy of Sony's RED Distribution. It's a slight deviation from the usual catalogue-oriented affairs, but your humble correspondent couldn't resist the opportunity to bring you, the reader, some neat (and free!) stuff.
The artist in question is Chris Shiflett, currently the lead guitarist for The Foo Fighters and also known for his work with Me First and The Gimme Gimmes, Jackson United, Viva Death and, formerly, No Use for a Name. The very busy Shiflett just released a new LP, a self-titled effort with new side project The Dead Peasants. It's a bit more roots-oriented than his other work, bringing to listeners a pedal-steel-and-twang sound to the mix (have a listen here).
If you like what you hear - and you happen to be around the Boston area around August 11 - then today's your lucky day. Shiflett and company will be playing TT the Bear's Place in Cambridge, and we're giving away a pair of tickets to a lucky winner. All you have to do is win is send an e-mail to us at theseconddisc (at) gmail (dot) com. We'll be accepting entries through July 30 - at which point we'll select a winner at random - so you'll have plenty of time to enter and plenty of time to get ready, should you win.
Tell all your friends, and best of luck to the entrants!
