Ticket Giveaway – Mac McCaughan at Baby’s All Right

Mac McCaughan

Superchunk frontman and Merge Records co-owner Mac McCaughan releases his first ever solo album, Non Believerson the 4th of May.

We’re delighted to be able to give away a couple of tickets to his show at Baby’s All Right on the 16th of May, which also features Flesh Wounds and And the Kids.

WIN TICKETS HERE

Non Believers is currently streaming on NPR a week ahead of its release and you can also listen to a couple of songs below the jump.

Non Believers features synthesisers and drum machines, concocting a dark, icey sound, but also manages to be uplifting in a way that New Wave really captured in the 80s.
