Ticket Giveaway: Langhorne Slim w/ Rayland Baxter at Fitzgerald’s

Fight/Comment amongst yourselves to win this coveted pair of tickets for tonight’s show at Fitzgerald’s. Langhorne Slim will headline the night that also features Rayland Baxter. Make sure your comments are under a valid email address so we can contact you if you win.

We’ll either be drawing a name from the hat or choosing the most compelling comment as the winner. You’ll never know until it happens. At least tell us a song you want to hear during the set tonight.


Langhorne Slim
If you have a guitar, a nasally voice that transitions into guttural crunchiness, and a fondness for thread-bare fedoras, your obvious calling is folk music. That’s the quick synopsis of Langhorne Slim. Sean Scolnick, the man who gives the band its name, is from the northeast, around the Philadelphia area. Obviously, he grew up on a musical diet of bluegrass and not Bon Jovi. Two years removed from his third album release Be Set Free, folk fans won’t want to miss this Houston tour date.

Songs of Note: “In the Midnight“, “My Future“, “Restless

Rayland Baxter
Hailing from Nashville seems to automatically give a musician some cred, but Rayland Baxter needs nothing of that. His father played steel guitar for Bob Dylan, and the experience must of trickled down the family tree right onto the guitar that Rayland picked up. Baxter’s lead-in to Langhorne Slim tonight will be that perfect mellow prelude. It will go nicely with the first beer of the night as you sink into the music and start considering the losses and gains of your day.

Songs of Note: “I Do Bad Things“, “The Woman for Me

Doors open at 8:00PM
Tickets $12 (All Ages)

I deserve the tickets ’cause I’m fat, bald and ugly… seriously, I think I’m due…

i want the tickets because i am trapped in a causal chain, one action leading to another, that started before time itself. we have no control, we have no agency. pure physical/material determinism.

My wife has a broken ankle, is on a scooter and hasn’t left the house in days. I really need these so we both don’t go insane. Mainly me.

I’d like to hear “Hummingbird”.

I broke Cory’s wife’s ankle and I’d like to give them the tickets to make amends.

I’d like a tix so I can ask Langhorne to sign my broken ankle boot. Pretty sure that Kevin guy is going to show up whether he wins the tix or not and if that’s the case I’d also like tix so I can kick him with my good ankle.

Cory — Wednesday, January 18, 2012 5:37 pm

And I’d like to hear “Land of Dreams”

Well, it seems to me that Cory has made the best case for the tickets. It helps that Amy weighed in as well.
