Local psych-pop crew of Montreal plays the 40 Watt Club tonight, and we've got a pair of tickets to give away. To win, tell us in the comments below why YOU deserve to go for free. We'll choose a winner today at 4:30 p.m.

From this week's paper:

Kevin Barnes is a quiet man. After a show, he likes to withdraw into a corner of the room, while his more boisterous bandmates assume the center of attention. He is tall and thin and muscled just enough to suggest that he has a gym membership somewhere in Athens. For the past few years, he's been wearing an asymmetrical haircut and looks scarcely aged since those first of Montreal records, which were released on Kindercore and Bar/None records over 17 years ago.

In conversation, Barnes is soft-spoken and so Midwestern-nice (he's from Ohio) that you imagine if he got mad he might punch you in the face with a hug. But to see Kevin Barnes offstage is to momentarily forget his larger-than-life spectacle onstage as of Montreal.
