Celebrating the “Definitive Edition” reissues of their early albums on Matador Records, Boston post-punk pioneers Mission of Burma are swinging into town for two shows this Friday and Saturday night at The Independent. Each night’s performance is special: Friday, they’ll be playing Signals, Calls & Marches in its entirety, and Saturday they’ll do the same for their equally awesome Vs. If you like heady, angular rock, you’d do well to check out one of these shows, and lucky for you, we’re giving away a pair tickets to Friday’s show! Details after the jump.

The band will be playing both nights with local rockers Hank IV, whose new album Refuge in Genre comes out on October 14th on Siltbreeze Records. The band describes the new record as a “decidedly meaner, sharper, and more pummeling affair” than their debut album Third Person Shooter.
