Win Tickets To See Mission Of Burma

By Tankboy in Miscellaneous on Nov 12, 2007 7:40PM


When Mission Of Burma reunited for a few shows a couple years ago we thought it was nice the old men were getting back together and getting some of the attention they certainly deserved. When we heard the reunion was going to be more or less permanent, we sort of prayed they wouldn't record a new album. They did anyway, and while we enjoyed it, we ultimately thought, "meh." Then they went ahead and recorded 2006's The Obliterati, producing an album that is arguably the best of their entire career.

We've seen the band a couple of times and we're still amazed at the energy the group is able to harness. All the young bands that think they're angry and try to project intensity on stage should bring a notebook to the show, because they're in for some serious schooling.

We're happy to offer you lucky readers a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Mission Of Burma this Friday, November 16, at The Abbey. Tickets are still available to all, but enter after the jump for your chance to get in for free!
