My Spilt Milk Presents Boats and Patrick Krief March 17, and we have tickets to give away.

Poster for Boats & Krief

"Never ever ever change your font size / Never ever become a vengeful ghost," Mat Klachefsky sings on Boats' new album, A Fairway Full of Miners (Kill Rock Stars), and it's typical of the playful attitude he and the Winnipeg-based band bring to pop and rock 'n' roll. They'll pass through New Orleans after SXSW, and will play the Circle Bar with Montreal's Patrick Krief, formerly of The Dears.

We're pleased to present the show and will have more on both bands as the show approaches. In the meantime, here's a musical preview and a chance to win a pair of tickets to the show. To enter, register here.
