CONTEST – Tokyo Police Club @ The Kool Haus – January 15, 2011
Frank YangWho: Tokyo Police Club
What: Local boys play their first hometown headlining show for last year’s Champ
Why: Okay, I already ran a giveaway for this show back in November but this one’s got a little something extra – in addition to seeing the show, you’ll also get to hit up Tokyo Police Club’s afternoon soundcheck at The Kool Haus. Which, I assume, they will go to the trouble of making a little more entertaining than a standard soundcheck – not that standing there listening to them mic a kick drum for 10 minutes isn’t scintillating.
When: Saturday, January 15, 2011
Where: The Kool Haus in Toronto (all ages)
Who Else: The co-headliners for the show are Two Door Cinema Club, the openers are PS I Love You
How: Tickets for the show are $21.50 in advance but courtesy of LiveNation and Smirnoff Canada, I’ve got a pair of passes to give away for the show and access to the aforementioned soundcheck, which will take place around 3:15 PM on the 15th so if you’re entering, please make sure you can attend. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Tokyo Police Club soundcheck” in the subject line and your full name and cell phone number in the body (this is so the LiveNation rep can contact you with specifics, not so that I can crank call you though I don’t promise that won’t happen – hey, nothing’s free). Contest closes at midnight, January 13.
What else: aux.tv has an interview with Tokyo Police Club.
