Chances are, if you know David Bazan, you love David Bazan. The onetime Pedro the Lion frontman is now a respected solo artist whose past two releases—2009's Curse Your Branches and this year's Strange Negotiations—are the best of his career. A painfully sincere songwriter who specializes in writing unflinching numbers about his struggles with faith, fidelity, and the creative process, Bazan is an artist that is both genuine and true.

He'll be in Portland (with his trusty backing band) this Friday at Mississippi Studios. I have a pair of tickets to giveaway, so just email me with the subject "I Want Tickets to See David Bazan" and we'll randomly select a winner by 3pm today. Good luck.
