This Saturday, the Builders and the Butchers are putting a fine new album into the world—Western Medicine is the Portland busker-folk ensemble's fourth studio album and crystallizes the band's hard-hitting, grave-digging sound, via Ryan Sollee's apocalyptic songwriting and the group's dueling drummers. Western Medicine is currently out on vinyl, with a CD release on Badman to follow on July 2. Meanwhile, this Saturday, June 22, TB&TB play a record release show at Mississippi Studios; their live shows are fierce, fiery, and full of energy. (It's a great bill, too, with Sons of Huns and River Giant also playing.)

We're giving away a pair of tickets to the show! To enter, just send an email to this address with "The Builders and the Butchers" in the subject line. Please include your first and last name in the email, along with the name of your favorite Butchers song. We'll select a winner at random and send them on their way to the show! This contest closes on Friday, June 21 at noon, so ACT NOW.

The Builders and the Butchers w/Sons of Huns, River Giant; Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, 9 pm, $15 (tickets here)
