Win Tickets to See Shearwater at The Bowery Ballroom on SaturdayMarch 25th, 2010
Close to a decade ago, singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalists Jonathan Meiburg and Will Sheff were in the talented Austin, Texas, band Okkervil River. Seeking an outlet for some of the quieter songs they’d written, the two founded Shearwater. That group’s first disc, The Dissolving Room, came out in 2001. Over the years, Meiburg’s now-ex-wife, bassist Kim Burke, and drummer-vibraphonist Thor Harris joined the band, and they’ve gone on to tour and release several more albums—the most recent of which, The Golden Archipelago, came out last month. Shearwater (above, playing “Leviathan, Bound”) comes to The Bowery Ballroom on Saturday, and The House List is giving away two tickets. Want to go? Then fill out the form below, including your name, e-mail address, which show you’re trying to win tickets to (Shearwater, 3/27) and a brief message explaining why you deserve to go. The winner will be notified on Friday.
