CONTEST – White Lies @ The Phoenix – September 26, 2009
Frank YangThe last time White Lies came through town back in March, it was in a co-headline context with Friendly Fires and though it was White Lies who were riding the #1 album in To Lose My Life and closed out the Toronto date, you won’t find many in attendance who would disagree that Friendly Fires stole the show. You just can’t follow big, dancey cowbell-injected fun with grandiose and dramatic angst-rock, it seems.
So when White Lies return for a show at the Phoenix on September 26, it’ll be just their name on the marquee – figuratively speaking. The Phoenix doesn’t have a marquee and there’ll also be an opener. But be assured, the tone of the night will be all mope. Tickets for the show are $20 in advance but courtesy of Rootmeansquare, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away to this show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to hear White Lies” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Get that in to me before midnight, September 22.
