If you haven't got Secret Machines (above) tickets yet, stop on by Cactus Music (2110 Portsmouth) today and pick up the proggy Dallas expats new self-titled CD; you'll get a free ticket to their show at Warehouse Live tonight with Perry Farrell and Electric Touch. (And a free poster!) If you're there around 6 p.m., local singer-songwriter Lise Liddell and Gougers guitarist Lance Smith will be serenading holiday shoppers, with free beer as always. Here's an MP3 of Liddell's unreleased "To the Brim":
The Machines themselves will do an in-store at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow, in what is being billed as their first-ever acoustic performance (?!). Opening, as it were, is local funkmeisters Little Brother Project with their own 1 p.m. mini-set.
Now that's a lot of free beer. - Chris Gray
