Calexico @ NYC's Webster Hall, October 2012 (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
11

As discussed, Calexico will be heading to Chicago for a two-night stand at City Winery on June 2 & 3. Tickets for their 6/2 performance are still available (6/3 is sold-out), and we've got a pair of tickets to give away for each night! Contest details can be found at the bottom of this post.

The long-running Southwestern group welcomed their seventh studio album, titled Algiers, in the fall of 2012. The LP is a bit more roots rock-centered than their previous efforts, but it makes for a nice addition to their discography. If you haven't had a chance to give it a spin yet, a stream of Algiers is in this post.

All Calexico tour dates, contest details, and a stream of Algiers are below...
