South @ Union Hall in Brooklyn, April 26, 2008 [Sound bites]
South @ Union Hall

In March 2002 I saw Elbow open for South at Bowery Ballroom... the first time I'd seen either band live. All I remember about that show is it was Guy Garvey's birthday and that I thought South suffered a bit from having to follow Elbow. I've seen both bands since, each has gotten better, but that certainly crossed my mind as I hopped into a cab right after Elbow's Webster Hall show Saturday and raced across the Manhattan Bridge to catch South at Union Hall.

South's new album "You Are Here" is streaming in its entirety at Spinner. South plays their third of three NYC shows at Mercury Lounge tonight (April 29, 2008). The third person to email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: South) right now, wins a pair of tickets. Include your first and last name.
