CONTEST – Silversun Pickups/Sea Wolf prize pack
The Silversun Pickups/Sea Wolf show at the Phoenix this coming Thursday may already be sold out but if you still want to go… well, there’s scalpers. I don’t have passes to give away this time around but I do have the third-best thing – a pair of prize packs consisting of the SSPU’s new album Carnavas, Sea Wolf’s debut EP Get To The River Before It Runs Too Low and a lovely silkscreened poster by local artists Alice Phieu and Adam Swinbourne (all courtesy of Against The Grain).
To enter, send me an email at contests AT chromewaves.net (I think the email is working now) with “I want the SSPU stuff” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Note that winners will have to pick up their prizes at the front bar of The Horseshoe by May 16, so make sure that works for you. As for the contest, it will run until midnight May 9.
I’m going to assume you’ve at least heard some SSPU before since, well, they’ve just sold out a 1000-capacity club – but if you’ve not heard Sea Wolf, check out the MP3s below and their Daytrotter session and interview from last week. It’s good stuff.
