CONTEST – Daniel, Fred & Julie @ The Horseshoe – April 15, 2010
MySpaceTheir billing isn’t anything more than their names – Daniel, Fred & Julie being Daniel Romano of Attack In Black, Fred Squire of Shotgun & Jaybird and Calm Down It’s Monday and Julie Doiron, all-around Canadian indie-rock heroine. Their album of the same name is just as simple and unpretentious, captured to tape in monophonic sound at Squire’s Sackville, New Brunswick garage and featuring three talents strumming and singing old standards and a couple of original compositions.
It’s a simple and lovely recording that documents a specific week last Summer but the trio are seeking to recreate the intimacy and vibe on tour, and reports from the early shows imply that they’re either doing just that or creating a whole new kind of special. Toronto will see if they can do that at the Horseshoe on Thursday, April 15 – tickets are $12 in advance, but courtesy of Collective Concerts and Pigeon Row, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want Daniel, Fred, Julie & Me” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me by midnight, April 13.
