CONTEST – Jingle Bell Rock in Toronto, Vancouver
jinglebellrock.caA little too much going on right now for proper posting, so you’ll forgive me if I just ride out the next couple days by partaking in the spirit of the season and giving some stuff away? But good stuff coming, I just need to work on it.
Jingle Bell Rock is the creatively-named tour featuring Can-indie luminaries Metric, Tokyo Police Club, The Dears and Sebastien Grainger & The Mountains on a ten-date mission to rock out, spread holiday cheer and raise funds for a range of worthwhile charities in the process. Things kick off with a two-night stand in Toronto at the Sound Academy on December 12 and 13, head west for single-night engagements in Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Edmonton before going two-fer in Calgary and wrapping up with a triple-shot in Vancouver from December 21 to 23.
And, courtesy of Filter, I’ve got passes to give away to not one, not two, not three, but four of the shows. That’s one pair for each Toronto show and two of the three Vancouver dates (it would have been a solid run of both cities but they went off and added the third Van-city show). So if you want to go to any of the above, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to Jingle Bell Rock in Toronto/Vancouver on December 12/13/21/22”, where you only include the city and date you’re looking for. For the Toronto dates, get entries in to me before midnight, December 9. Vancouverites, since you’re three hours behind anyways, you have until December 16 to get me your entries in. Lollygaggers.
And enter for multiple dates if you like.
Update: Hey, powers that be wanted the names sooner rather than later, so I closed the Toronto leg of things a bit early. And I’ve moved up the deadline for the Vancouver dates If you were waiting to enter… well damn, I have no idea why. Sorry.
