CONTEST – Mouse On Mars @ Wrongbar – June 1, 2010
sonigGroundbreaking German electronic duo Mouse On Mars have been relatively quiet in recent years – their last release under their own name was 2006’s Varcharz, but then they were part of Von Sudenfed, who released Tromatic Reflexxions in 2007, and working with Mark E. Smith of The Fall is probably enough to send anyone into hiding for a few years.
They’re finally coming back, however – a website news update late last year announced that, ““Mouse On Mars are writing their most exciting new stuff for years – possibly decades” and perhaps as a sign that said material is ready to see the light of day, they’ve scheduled a handful of Canadian live dates leading up to the MUTEK festival in Montreal. Southern Ontarians can catch them on June 1 at Wrongbar in Toronto and June 2 at The Casbah in Hamilton, and Torontoians can possibly do so for free by entering this here contest.
Tickets for the show are $15 in advance but courtesy of The Union, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Mouse On Mars” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, May 27.
