CONTEST – Summerworks Music Series

…But before I go, some giveaways.
Next weekend marks the kick-off of the annual SummerWorks Theatre Festival as well as the inaugural edition of the SummerWorks Music Series, which endeavours to bring the worlds of independent music and independent theatre together in one celebration of, um, independence.
The music fest features a terrific lineup of talent from both Toronto and outlying regions, including Gentleman Reg (pictured), The Diableros, Rock Plaza Central, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Laura Barrett and The Bicycles, amongst many many others. They’re playing two a night from August 8 to 16 (excepting the 11th) at the Theatre Centre – aka the space underneath The Great Hall – at Queen West and Dovercourt.
And courtesy of the festival, I’ve got three sets of vouchers to give away, good for two tickets to any one of the shows. If you want some, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Summerworks Music Festival Contest” in the subject line and your name, email address and best way to contact you in the body. Do so by Tuesday, August 6th – winners will be selected on the 7th.
And in the meantime, hit up the festival blog for news and interviews from both the theatre and music sides of the festival.
