Win tix to see Mayer Hawthorne at the Larimer Lounge tonight
Update: Congrats Mike Shapiro and Courtney Ozaki. Both are going to see Mayer Hawthorne at the Larimer Lounge tonight. Have a good time!
It's fitting that Mayer Hawthorne originally hails from Michigan, the sacred soil that birthed Motown, as his throwback sound evokes the trademark brand of soul that iconic imprint pioneered, particularly on songs like "Your Easy Lovin' Ain't Pleasin' Nothin'" and "Make Her Mine." Elsewhere, he does his best to summon the spirit of the Chi-lites and the Stylistics on tunes such as "I Wish It Would Rain." Soul music like this, being made by Hawthorne -- and admittedly more believably by acts such as the Dynamites, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, (gulp) Amy Winehouse and Cody Chesnutt, among others -- is a pleasing anomaly, songs that exude a timeless quality in such a disposable era. Hawthorne graces the Larimer Lounge with his presence this evening, and we've got two pairs of tickets up for grabs. Wanna go? Hit us up, and we'll pick two winners later this afternoon. In the meantime, check out Hawthorne's latest, A Strange Arrangement, after the jump.
