CONTEST – Built To Spill @ Lee's Palace – July 10 and 11, 2007
So as mentioned in this week’s MP3 Of The Week writeup, next week will mark Built To Spill’s first-ever Toronto dates. Which is just crazy considering they’ve played Buffalo lots of times. BUFFALO. But regardless, it’s happening even if it’s taken them 15-odd years to get around to it. Next Tuesday and Wednesday nights, Lee’s Palace will be host to some of the craziest-ass guitar orgies you ever did see, and courtesy of the good folks at Against The Grain, you could be there. Assuming you didn’t already get tickets which you really should have. I don’t know why I’m rewarding you for your sloth.
But anyway, I’ve got passes to give away. Two pairs, one for each night. And if you want em, you gotta leave me a comment below saying which night – Tuesday the 10th or the Wednesday the 11th – you want to go to and why it will be the best show of the two. Do you go for the historic moment of the first epic solo that Doug Martsch ever unleashes on Hogtown? Or do you think that they’ll be holding back that first night in order to let loose on the second? Inquiring minds want to know. Leave me your reasoning along with your full name and email and note that whatever night you are championing is the one you will be eligible for. No saying that night one is going to rock but you have to work so you’ll settle for night two. Stand by your opinion, dogs. Contest closes at midnight, July 7.
And oh yeah, CMJ has some info on a new 12″ single that Built To Spill is releasing on the 10th. It’s reggae.
