CONTEST – Joel Plaskett & Peter Elkas @ The Opera House – May 25, 2007
Got way too much to do right now so no full post today – just this contest but trust me, I’ve got some good stuff on the way before I take off for vacation.
Said contest is for this month’s Exclaim! cover boys, Joel Plaskett and Peter Elkas. Both are formerly of much-beloved Canadian indie bands (Plaskett fronted Haligonian heroes Thrush Hermit while Elkas was a member of Montreal’s Local Rabbits) and are carving out solo careers, Plaskett with quintessentially Canadian singer-songerwriter roots-rock and Elkas with sweet and deep blue-eyed soul.
Both have also got new CDs out, Plaskett’s Ashtray Rock and Elkas’ Wall Of Fire, and as such they’re playing a show at the Opera House on May 25 and courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Plaskett and Elkas” in the subject line and your full name in the email body. Contest closes at midnight, May 17 – getting this taken care of will be the last thing I do before departing this continent.
