The folk-rock band plays The Civic Theatre Saturday night, and we have tickets to give away.
The palette is broad, with layered guitars, harmonica and saloon piano tinged with gamelan-style percussion ("Brother") and Asian-flavored melodies ("Setting Sun"), all serving an impressionist Wild West cosmology that includes [Ben] Schneider's visual art and film work.
When the band recently played Milwaukee, Piet Levy reviewed the show, writing:
["Ends of the Earth"], like many found on the Los Angeles-based band's 2012 full-length debut Lonesome Dreams, is prettier, dreamier, than other star folk acts — Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers — whose music is similarly reminiscent of a romantic, long-ago era. But Lord Huron is no less cinematic; it just attains its widescreen sweep in less conventional ways, like the distant hum of Schneider's harmonica on "The Ghost on the Shore."
We're giving away a pair of tickets to see the show courtesy of the Civic. Register here for a chance to win. The contest closes at noon Friday.
