CONTEST – Phoenix @ The Ricoh Coliseum – October 22, 2010
Frank YangWho: Phoenix
What: Arguably the biggest French rock band on the planet right now and in years, scoring copious critical praise and record sales with their nonsensical but hugely catchy dance-pop
Why: Though this is their third show in Toronto for this record, when you score with album as massively as Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix has, you milk it. MILK IT.
When: Friday, October 22, 2010
Where: The Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto
Who else: They’re making the show a true international affair, bringing along Americans Wavves and inviting locals Tokyo Police Club to open things up.
How: Tickets range from $39.50 to $45.00 in advance – plus fees – but courtesy of LiveNation, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want the Phoenix” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, October 14.
What else: Phoenix have posted up the multitrack audio stems of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix for fans to download and remix to their heart’s content. Haven’t you always wanted to remix a Frenchman? Sure you have!
