CONTEST – Born Ruffians Prize Pack
Timothy SaccentiSo how exactly do you, as a band, know when you’ve arrived? Is it when you quit your day job? When your parents accept that you’re not just wasting your life? In the case of Toronto’s Born Ruffians, is it when your debut album Red, Yellow & Blue proves popular enough that you’re able to headline a venue the size of the Opera House, as they are this Saturday night? When you’re the subject of a documentary program by Bruce McDonald following you around SxSW?
No, I think it’s when you can justify having tote bags as merch. How loyal do your fans have to be to want a tote bag? I mean, how many tote bags can an individual need? How much does one person have to tote at any given time? I do not know. It confounds me. But indeed, the Born Ruffians have their very own tote bags for sale and courtesy of Stage Fright Publicity, I’ve got one to give away – along with a remix 12″ of their latest single “Little Garcon” and a t-shirt. If you want, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want the Born Ruffians swag” in the subject line and your full mailing address and t-shirt size (and gender) and get that in to me before midnight, October 31.
