Wye Oak just began their 25 date road trip on Monday night (Jan 24), with the first of three high profile opening gigs for The Decemberists at the cavernous Beacon Theatre. They’ll be playing their own intimate headlining show on Thursday, Jan 28 at The Rock Shop where they will be previewing tunes off of their forthcoming album Civilian, which is due out on March 8 on Merge Records. The Rock Shop show is free, but the only way to get in is if you are invited or if you win tickets, which I happened to be giving away right here. Enter to win a free pair of tickets after the jump, contest ends Tuesday at midnight, winner will be notified early Wednesday, locals only please.

In other Wye Oak news, their limited edition 2010 EP, My Neighbor / My Creator has been re-issued by Merge with new cover art in another limited-edition run of 1,000 discs printed at Stumptown Printers in Portland. You can buy it now on CD or via digital download at the Merge store.
