Why should you care about a band called Come performing at Mississippi Studios tonight? Let Robert Ham tell you

"With dozens of other ’90s-era bands reuniting to great acclaim and profits, the ripple effect is finally stirring up interest in the groups overshadowed by the titans of the Alternative Nation years. During its initial run, Come certainly had its share of supporters, releasing four full-lengths on Matador and going on the road with Sonic Youth and Sugar. But with its overdriven, snaky guitars and Zedek’s beautifully weathered voice and desperate worldview, the Boston-based quartet had a sound that was too dangerously sexy to achieve crossover success. But listen to the darker moments of bands like Red Fang or experimental duo Barn Owl, and the impact that Come had on vibrant, emotional guitar music is still being felt today."
We've got two tickets for the show to giveaway to the first person to email msinger@wweek with COME in the subject line. (We know it sounds dirty, but our aim is pure, we promise.) Off to the races!

Meanwhile, enjoy this video of what's purported to be the band's first show, 22 years ago:
