Foo Fighters' Chris Shiflett has set aside his big, brash, rock guitar in favor of a more stripped-down Americana feel that's quite akin to a number of classic country artists (Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams), rockabilly (Gene Vincent, Elvis, Eddie Cochran), and deep-rooted rock bands (The Replacements, The Rolling Stones, X).
His self-titled release Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants hit your local record stores last month, and this month Chris and the band have hit the road to introduce you to these new batch of songs in person.
The tour stops Monday night (8/9) at DC9 and with Chris is special guest Ari Shine, he of today's 'First Date.'
We've got a pair of tickets to award one of you simply for the asking in the comments to this post. Let us know why they should be bestowed upon you—with a contact email address!—and the most convincing of the bunch gets in free on Chris (and us.)
We're closing this one first thing Monday morning to give you plenty of time to conjure up some good old fashioned arm twisting. So, let's hear it, hm?
