  • Horse Feathers' Justin Ringle

[UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winner has been notified.]

Horse Feathers' fourth album, Cynic's New Year, comes out on Kill Rock Stars on Tuesday, April 17. It's my favorite work so far from the Portland chamber folk ensemble, balancing the delicacy of the group's ravishing instrumentation with frontman Justin Ringle's weighty songwriting. (Take a listen to "Where I'll Be" right here.) Horse Feathers plays a hometown release show at the Aladdin Theater on Saturday, April 21, and we're giving away a pair of tickets!

All you've got to do is send an email to this address with the words "Horse Feathers" in the subject line. You must include the name of your favorite Horse Feathers song AND your first and last name in the body of the email. (If not, you won't be eligible.) A winner will be selected at random, and that winner can stroll right up to the Aladdin Theater ticket window on April 21 and score two free tickets into the show. Simple!

So get cracking. This contest will remain open until Tuesday, April 10 at 9 am. Good luck! (Hate winning things? Pay money for your tickets like a normal person right here.)
