DOWNLOAD: David Bazan - Bless This Mess (MP3)

David Bazan

The bad news: David Bazan's upcoming run of solo house shows, which includes a stop in Brooklyn on Mon, August 31st, is totally sold out (all dates below).

The good news: Tickets are still on sale for his October 18th show at Bowery Ballroom, and we have a bunch of tickets to giveaway to the Brooklyn house show, AND we'll be broadcasting that house show right here live on BrooklynVegan.

David's played hundreds of house shows over the course of his career, including a three-month tour last spring, but the live stream will be a first for him. At Brooklynvegan.com/bazan, those online will be able to participate in the show with a live chat and Twitter feed, from which Bazan will take a handful of questions for his customary live question and answer session.

It gets better. The house show tickets we're giving away also come with a free ticket to the Bowery Ballroom show (that Say Hi is also playing). Details on how to win, below.

The Bowery show is a part of Bazan's full-band tour this fall in support of his first full-length solo LP, Curse Your Branches. The record comes out September 1st on Barsuk Records and will be available via iTunes preorder. "Bless This Mess," from that disc, is posted above.

All tour dates and contest details are below...

TO WIN A TICKET to SEE DAVID BAZAN IN BROOKLYN ON AUG 31 (which comes with a ticket to see David again on October 18th): email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: BAZAN). Include your first and last name. Two winners will be picked at random and contacted.

Info for those with tickets to the house show tour

In addition to a Paypal receipt, you will be e-mailed a confirmation from Undertow a few days after your purchase. Please print and bring this confirmation and photo ID to the show. Your name will be on a list at the door. You must have the printed confirmation to get in. If you buy multiple tickets they will all be under the name of the purchaser and the other people will need to arrive with the purchaser (example: Caleb Palma + 3).

No tickets will be sold at the door. You must buy tickets here to get into this show.

You can start arriving at 7:30pm. The show will start at 8pm and will run until about 9:30pm. We ask that everyone be out of the house by 10pm unless the host agrees to a later time on the night of the show.

IMPORTANT: This show is a solo acoustic performance being hosted in a private home. It's not a party. Please be respectful of the performance, the hosts and their home.

SEATING: Most of the shows will not provide any seating. You should bring a seat cushion to sit on the floor.
