Working For The Weekend
So I wasn’t in at all last night so no proper post today. Just this, which I whipped together the night before. Be prepared, I always says.
So there’s lots going on this coming weekend – it’s Wednesday, we can talk about the weekend – but if on the off-chance you’ve got no plans as of yet, then I’m here to help. Courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got enough passes to shows to ensure you’ll have something to tell them about at the office come Monday morning. First, this Friday night, there’s the Grand Archives show at the El Mocambo – I wrote up their rather fine self-titled debut on Sunday. Then on Saturday, former Moldy Peach and Juno soundtrack contributor Adam Green brings his new solo record Sixes & Sevens to the Horseshoe and finally, on Sunday night, Belgian electronic artist Styrofoam plays selections from his new record A Thousand Words – out already digitally and out on CD next week – to the El Mocambo.
If some or all of these tickle your fancy – I have two pairs of passes for each show – fire me off an email at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see (insert name of relevant artist)” in the subject line and your full name in the body. And if you actually send me an email with the above subject line verbatim, you will be eliminated from this and all future contests until the sun burns out. The rest of you, get your entries in to me by midnight tonight for Grand Archives, midnight tomorrow for the other two.
