CONTEST – Van Dyke Parks @ The Music Gallery – September 29, 2010
MySpaceWho: Van Dyke Parks
What: Legendary American composer and arranger best known for working on Brian Wilson’s lost and then found masterpiece Smile, but who is most recently known for the rich orchestral arrangements on Joanna Newsom’s Ys.
Why: Parks rarely tours and performs, so when he chooses to, you don’t ask why – just when, where and how much
When: Wednesday, September 29
Where: The Music Gallery in Toronto
Who else: New York’s Clare & The Reasons, whose debut The Movie featured production and arrangement work from Parks, will both open and act as Parks’ band
How: Tickets are $30 in advance but courtesy of Union Events, 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 Van Dyke Parks” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, September 26.
What else: Daytrotter just posted a session with Clare & The Reasons.
