CONTEST – Arcade Fire @ The Toronto Islands – August 14, 2010
Frank YangWho: Arcade Fire
What: Arguably the biggest band in Canada right now. Maybe you’ve heard of them.
Why: After previewing their long-awaited third record The Suburbs to Toronto via a couple of intimate theatre shows back in June, they will follow next Tuesday’s official release with an appropriately big-ass show as far from Toronto’s suburbs as you can get.
When: Saturday, August 14, 2010
Where: The Toronto Islands
Who else: Support comes from the almost-as-buzzworthy-as-the-headliner soul sister Janelle Monáe and psych-country veterans The Sadies.
How: Tickets for the show are $56 including ferry, fees and donation to Partners In Health but courtesy of Collective Concerts I’ve got eight pairs of passes to give away for the show – six for regular admission and two for VIP, which gets you admission to the VIP areas which will allow you to feel superior to those outside the VIP area. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want the Arcade Fire” in the subject line and your full name in the body and get that to me before midnight, August 10.
Note that the prizes do not include the ferry to the islands so that’ll be $6 a head out of your own pockets and VIP winners must be 19+ so if you’re underage, note that in your entry as to avoid any awkwardness on the day of the show.
What else: The Montreal Gazette interviews Win Butler. Their show this Thursday at Madison Square Garden in New York City will be webcast on Vevo and be directed by Terry Gilliam.
