CONTEST – Earlimart Prize Pack
Los Angeles’ Earlimart just released their fifth album Mentor Tormentor and are currently on the road to promote, including what I think are their first Canadian dates – if not ever, then in a very long time. I know this because they’ve been perpetually on the bubble as far as my SxSW schedules have been concerned and never quite made the cut. I’ve always felt a bit guilty about this and have never had the chance to make it up by seeing them locally, until now. And, of course, I can’t make their Toronto show at the El Mocambo on Friday but have every intention of seeing them here in Montreal on Saturday… which if history holds means I won’t be seeing them at all. But enough about me.
I have Earlimart goods to give away. Not the new album, but a bonus EP that is/was only available through certain stores with purchase of the record as well as some fancy frameable posters and some stickers for vandalizing things. Swag, in other words. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “Shop Smart – Shop Earlimart” in the subject line and your mailing address in the body. This contest is open to anyone living in North America and closes at midnight, October 6 (which is when they’re scheduled to play at Le Gymnase in Montreal). In the meantime, check out a track from the new album and a couple of bonus tracks not on the album or the EP. And read this interview with The Georgia Straight.
