CONTEST – Duffy @ The Mod Club – March 18, 2008

The fact that Welsh songstress Duffy has a UK chart-topping single in “Mercy” and a platinum record in Rockferry pleases me, because it means that producer Bernard Butler is doing alright for himself.
So with all that under her belt, it’s a bit of a wonder that her March 18 show at the Mod Club in Toronto isn’t yet sold out – all signs certainly point to success on a Winehouse-ian scale, and tickets for her Mod Club shows last year were in pretty outrageous demand. Perhaps that sort of buzz will come after Rockferry gets a North American release on May 13 and those who were lucky enough to see her in a small club will be able to say they saw her when.
And if you want to be one of those lucky ones… well, go buy a ticket. Or enter this contest. Courtesy of Emerge, I’ve got two prize packs to give away, each consisting of a pair of passes to the show and a copy of the “Mercy” single on CD. To enter, send me an email to contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to be able to say I saw Duffy in a small club” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body. I’ll let this run until midnight, March 12. And until then, check out the first two official singles and this interview at Barking & Dagenham Recorder. What a great name for a paper.
