To advance their southwestern-tinged sound, Joey Burns and John Convertino’s Calexico took to New Orleans to record their newest record, Algiers. The result is an album inspired by the vibe and the sound of the city, but that is consistently and truly Calexico. They’re playing at Union Transfer tonight with support from Dodos, and we want you to be there. To enter to win tickets, email ihopeiwin[at]philebrity[dot]com with “ALGIERS” in the subject header.
