The wooden floors, the wooden pillars, the awkward wooden benches that make you slide in awkward angles while you’re trying to charm the indie kid next to you– The Parish will be resonating with the sullen, yet inspiring music of Noah and the Whale on both, Wednesday, May 8, and Thursday May 9– two opportunities, and Red River Noise is giving away a pair of tickets for each night.
The British band, Noah and the Whale, quickly caught attention with their first single in 2007. What really made us fans was that indesputable fact that “2 Atoms and A Molecule” is the perfect song for car rides with the windows down on mid-summer days that smell of pineapple. Their lyrics mean something, and that meaningfulness is strongly supported by the perfect cadence at the perfect time. With the recent release of their new album, Last Night on Earth, you can expect to hear some of their new works, and hopefully some iconic favorites here and there.
Noah and the Whale will be performing for two nights in a row, opening with Bahamas, which is actually a solo project by a musician by the name of Afie Jurvanen. On tour, he will most likely have his friend Jason Tait on drums. Bahamas has a very intimate and summer-nights feel, sounding of nostalgia and the urge to fall in love, slowly, slowly, and with sincerity.
We’ll be giving away a pair of tickets on the night before each show. All you have to do is click “Like” on this post every time you see it on our Facebook page to qualify. This only applies to fans in the Central Texas area capable of making it to the show. Good luck!
