CONTEST – Howlin' Rain @ The Horseshoe – October 13, 2008

With Comets On Fire, Ethan Miller has proven a certain facility with recreating the sounds and textures of a bygone era, namely the sprawling space-rock jams and fuzz-laden psychedelia of the ’70s. With his other band, Howlin’ Rain, he’s demonstrated his stylistic versatility by recreating different sounds and textures of that same bygone era, namely the sprawing blues-rock boogies and organ-laden classic rock and funk of the ’70s. Hey, you can’t say the man doesn’t know what he likes.

The San Francisco outfit are on tour in support of their new album Magnificent Friend and will be at the Horseshoe next Monday night, October 13, with locals Quest For Fire as support. And, courtesy of rootmeansquare, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. If you’re looking for an excuse to break out your bell bottoms, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Howlin’ Rain” in the subject line and your full name in the body and get that in to me by midnight, October 9.

The Free Lance-Press and The Lumberjack have interviews with Miller.
