CONTEST – The Clientele & Field Music @ The Horseshoe – March 19, 2010
Andy WillsherDo not get me wrong, I’m as excited as anything to be heading down to Austin, Texas in a week and a half for my sixth (!) SxSW, but there’s more than a twinge of regret over what I’ll be missing back here at home: my cat, my own bed and a hell of a double-bill at the Horseshoe on the Friday night with The Clientele and Field Music.
The former will be touring in support of last year’s lovely (and rumoured swan song) Bonfires On The Heath while the latter will be playing songs from their just-released return to active duty, (Measure). Verily, for an Anglophile such as myself, it’s the sort of bill that one dreams about and missing it, as I will be? Well, it hurts. It really does.
So for those of you remaining in the 416, I ask that you go, bid these weary travelers welcome and bear witness to this show in my stead. I’ll even make it easy for you – courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got a pair of passes to the show to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see The Clientele” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, March 14.
