When I discovered A Silver Mt. Zion circa 2002, I was immediately hooked. Off kilter orchestral music that simultaneously embraced beauty and sorrow while challenging the paradigm of rock music—the band was definitely speaking my language. A few name changes later, the band is still at it, delivering highly dexterous compositions that sprawl out epically. But what’s most important today, is that you can WIN TICKETS to the band’s show in Austin on April 22nd! All you have to do is hit us up on Twitter at the link below.
