CONTEST – Givers @ The Garrison – June 21, 2011
What: Almost unsettlingly chipper Louisiana pop outfit whose ubiquity in dorm rooms across the continent seems inevitable.
Why: Their debut album In Light was just released this week but they’ve already been on the road for a month to bring its peppy peppiness to your ears.
When: Tuesday, June 21, 2011
Where: The Garrison in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Support comes from Pittsburgh’s Pepper Rabbit; truly a trans-American bill
How: Tickets for the show are $13.50 in advance, but courtesy of Embrace I’ve got a pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to Giver” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, June 17.
What else: Givers are profiled by The Guardian, The Times and Spinner and their album is streaming in whole at NPR right now.
