needtobreathe lead

All throughout the month of October we have been giving away tickets like hot cakes here at the LAmb, so why should November be any different? This week, we’re offering up TWO pairs of tickets for NEEDTOBREATHE, Good Old War, and Matthew Mayfield’s show at the Fox Theater in Pomona next Friday, November 2nd!

NEEDTOBREATHE is an alt-rock group from Seneca, South Carolina. There aren’t a lot of bands out there that sound like NEEDTOBREATHE nowadays as the group mixes alt-rock sounds from the late-90s with the pop sounds of today. Their latest LP, The Reckoning, topped out at #6 on the Billboard Top 200, so get to know the guys of NEEDTOBREATHE with the video linked below.

Good Old War is a country/folk band from Langhorne, PA made up of Keith Goodwin (Days Away), Dan Schwartz (Unlikely Cowboy), and Tim Arnold. Keith Goodwin is one of my all-time favorite vocalist and writers, and his time spent with Days Away resulted in some truly amazing music. With Good Old War finally coming into its own as a band, I can only see great things from these guys in the future. They are currently signed with Sargent House, which I have to say is a pretty cool label, and they released the album Come Back as Rain in March of this year. Definitely check that out, as well as the video below.

Matthew Mayfield, a singer/songwriter from Birmingham, AL, has kind of the same thing going on as NEEDTOBREATHE as far as the ’90s meeting a modern pop sound, just in a one-man package instead of a band. His third LP, A Banquet for Ghosts, was released earlier this year, and you can check out the first song off the album in acoustic form via the video below.

As usual, all you have to do to be entered to win these tickets is comment below using an email address you check often and telling us why you think you deserve the tickets. Pretty simple right!?! Tickets are also available for purchase, so good luck and godspeed LAmb readers!
