We were totally won over by Breathe Owl Breathe's costumed turn at Pickathon last year. They're kind of like Nick Drake blearily fronting a subdued Os Mutantes, but from Michigan, plus with way better press photos than some other bands we could mention. Anyway, here's the debut of the brand new video for "Own Stunts" off their forthcoming album Magic Central, which won't be out until the summer. The video was directed by Portland's own Weston Currie and prominently features an extremely frostbitten-looking beard. More importantly, Breathe Owl Breathe are playing along with Megafaun and Pancake Breakfast this Saturday, April 17 at Mississippi Studios, and we've got two pairs of tickets to give away to lucky End Hits readers!
Speaking of Pickathon, Saturday's show will be a Pickathon kickoff show of sorts; you can win all kinds of Pickathon prizes at the show, including a weekend pass to the festival this August. Think of it. You could win tickets to this show, and then win free tickets to Pickathon. You'd be the ultimate freeloader.
To win your tickets, just leave a comment describing either your best/worst/most embarrassing costume (either Halloween or otherwise) or some sort of costume-related story. We'll keep it loose and easy. In fact, if you just say the word "costume" in the comments, we'll consider it. The contest will be open until midnight tomorrow, Thursday April 15, and we'll pick a winner on Friday morning. Good luck!
