CONTEST – Menomena @ The Mod Club – September 28, 2010
What: Portland-based, Grammy-nominated (for packaging) prog-pop trio adept at balancing experimental and melodic inclinations and whose name apparently isn’t a Sesame Street salute
Why: Their fourth album Mines was released back in July – naturally extensive touring must follow
When: Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Where: The Mod Club in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Support comes from Suckers and Tu Fawning, both of whom have their own respectable head of buzz going on
How: Tickets are $15 in advance, but courtesy of Barsuk, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away to the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Menomena (do doo do doo doo do)” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, September 24.
What else: The band are marking the kick-off of the tour with a 30-minute mixtape/sound collage that they’ve dubbed “Magichat”. Seattle Weekly talks to Menomena’s Danny Seim.
