CONTEST – Ron Sexsmith @ Lee’s Palace – April 21, 2011
FacebookWho: Ron Sexsmith
What: Torontonian who somehow manages to be amongst the most respected and underappreciated singer-songwriters the country has to offer has just released his twelfth album, the unexpectedly Bob Rock-produced Long Player Late Bloomer.
Why: In addition to capping off a Canadian tour in support of the new record, Sexmith was also the subject of a documentary film Love Shines, released last year, and will be the subject of the Canadian Songbook show at Massey Hall in June as part of LuminaTO. Maybe he’s finally getting his due after all.
When: Thursday, April 21, 2011
Where: Lee’s Palace in Toronto
Who else: Support comes from Winnipeg duo Ash Koley.
How: Tickets for the show are $25 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, 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 Ron Sexsmith” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, April 18.
What else: Sexsmith is the subject of features at The Vancouver Sun, The Calgary Herald, The Ottawa Citizen and See. In addition to the show at Lee’s, Sexsmith will play an acoustic in-store across the street at Sonic Boom at 6PM the same evening.
