CONTEST – Open House @ The Tranzac – July 19, 2008
The Tranzac – Toronto Australia New Zealand Club – is a little gem of a Toronto institution, nestled just of Bloor on Brunswick in the Annex. The non-profit, volunteer-run community centre plays host to a wide variety of under the radar cultural events ranging from the musical through the theatrical, comedic, literary or what have you, and on Saturday July 19th they’re holding their annual open house event to celebrate the year past, the one upcoming and raise funds to keep it all going.
To help celebrate, they’ve assembled a suitably eclectic range of programming for the night, featuring Fembots, Castlemusic, Burning Hell, The Mantler Band, Tusks, Josh Thorpe’s “You Do” (featuring Jason Benoit, Allison Cameron, Jennifer Castle, Eric Chenaux, and Marcus Quin), Great Aunt Ida, Jenny Omnichord, Griffin & The True Believers and DJ duties from Glissandro 70.
Courtesy of the club, I’ve got a pair of passes to give away for the festivities – to enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to party with the Tranzac” in the subject line and your full name in the body. The winner will be drawn at the stroke of midnight (or thereabouts) on July 15. Tickets for the event are $10 in advance at Soundscapes and Rotate This and will also be available at the door.
