CONTEST – AC Newman @ Lee's Palace – March 11, 2009

Photo By Caleb BuyersCaleb BuyersMost people look forward to their time off, but Carl Newman seems averse to not working even for a moment. Immediately after touring The New Pornographers’ last album Challengers into the ground, he hopped back in the studio in his solo guise of AC Newman and turned out the rather fine Get Guilty.

And now, of course, he’s heading back on tour. With a touring band that’s maybe not quite as “super-” as the Pornographers but still pretty damn good – Jon Wurster, Shane Nelken, Miranda Brown, Shaun Brodie and Tara Szczygielski – Newman will be cruising the highways and byways of North America throughout March, including a March 11 stop at Lee’s Palace in Toronto. Update: Just confirmed – Nicole Atkins, who contributes vocals to the record, will be joining the band for a few east coast dates including the Toronto show!

And, courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got a couple pairs of passes to the show to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want to get guilty” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, March 7.

There’s interviews with Newman at The Santa Barbara Independent and Crawdaddy.

    Admirers of AC and/or Carl would be wise to check out the band’s recent video studio session at , which is archived as part of Morning Becomes Eclectic. Looks like AC Carl has the singing ladies in his current band now playing bass and violin . This program has an endless treasure trove of other great sessions once you take a look. Well worth exploring me thinks.
