State Champion

State Champion — a gritty, experimental-leaning alt-country band that makes dense, evocative songs that shine with poetic soul — is set to release a new album, Send Flowers, on Friday, Nov. 9. The next day, you’ll get the chance to hear their new batch of songs at Zanzabar. Judging by one of the record’s singles, “Death Preferences” — a masterfully-written melancholy puzzle of song —it’s going to be worth your time and money. David Nance Band and Axis: Sova open.
