CONTEST – Anna Calvi @ The El Mocambo – May 27, 2011
Sharan SoorWho: Anna Calvi
What: Anglo-Italian singer-songwriter/guitar virtuoso whose dramatic and romantic self-titled debut is one of the most sumptuous things you will hear this year.
Why: After cancelling her debut North American tour back in March due to an injured arm, Calvi will be playing her first shows on this side of the pond later this month – precisely when I’m on THAT side of the pond, natch. One can only hope her August appearance at Osheaga in Montreal is part of a new batch of dates.
When: Friday, May 27, 2011
Where: The El Mocambo in Toronto (19+)
Who else: San Diego’s Cuckoo Chaos are support across the entire tour.
How: Tickets for the show are $12 in advance, but courtesy of Domino Records, I’ve got a pair of passes to the show and a copy of Anna Calvi on LP to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Anna Calvi” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body. Contest closes at midnight, May 19.
What else: Clash reports that Calvi’s next single – out June 20 – will be “Desire” and the b-side on the 7″ single will be a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Joan Of Arc”. Um, yes please.
