CONTEST – Deerhoof @ The Phoenix – March 5, 2008

So next week is Canadian Music Week and what’s more Canadian than having to bring in non-Canadian acts to add star power to a festival dedicated to promoting Canadian talent?
In this case, eye is sponsoring a night at the Phoenix on Wednesday, March 5 – the night before the citywide showcases get underway – and are balancing things out by having half the bill up and coming domestic talent, the other half exotic foreigners. The former consists of Ten Kens, recently signed to Fat Cat Records and Sebastien Grainger, formerly of Death From Above 1979 and getting held up at the border are Californians No Age and Deerhoof.
eye is also sponsoring this contest for the show that they are sponsoring. And thus I have a pair of passes – check that – VIP passes – to give away for this show. These VIP passes will get you access to VIP-designated areas like the parlour and the balcony wherein you will be able to partake in various VIP activities such as… well, I don’t know. You’ll have to report back on that. But if you wish to attend, send me an email at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to hoof it to Deerhoof” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Do this before midnight, February 29 or your entry will turn into a pumpkin.
