If you make it out to Moe's next Thursday, October 29, you can catch a bill of Light Travels Faster, Night Owl and Portamento. If you like Light Travels faster (and you probably will; our A.H. Goldstein said the band has a "dense, textured and harmonically rich sound [that] melds an ear for compositional continuity with a sense for poetic pacing" in a feature profile earlier this year), you can catch up with the group's back catalog for the low, low price of whatever the hell you want to pay.
The band has compiled their two EPs, After the Black of Baca County and ...with friends like these and some older material into a single disc and is making it available on a donation basis. So, $5, $2, a handful of bottle caps and a shot of Jack Daniels ... whatever you can afford, they'll presumably hook you up. And even if you're already well versed in the LTF sound, you might want to grab it anyway, since some of the early material on the disc is previously unreleased. Sounds like a steal. Get more details at Light Travels Faster's MySpace page.
