See Phosphorescent at ND

I warned you about this, and now it's happening. Phosphorescent are bringing their show to The ND tomorrow night. The band notoriously had their rental van stolen on the first night of their scheduled six-week US Tour - along with all of their equipment and merchandise - with losses totaling around $40,000. Not long after the story was published, the band posted a MySpace blog update saying the police had miraculously recovered the van, unharmed.

Matthew Houck and the band are touring in support of Here's to Taking It Easy, the fifth full-length album by Phosphorescent. Released in May, and recorded with the same band that delivered the red-headed-stranger tribute To Willie, Paste says the album "evokes lost days and lonely nights with keen observations and road-weary melodies...that’ll have you shedding a tear in your PBR."

Tickets for the show are available here, but if you're not really into paying for things, I'm offering up two pair for giveaway on Twitter. Event details and such are posted at Do512.
