CONTEST – Death Cab For Cutie @ The Molson Amphitheatre – July 29, 2011
Ryan RussellWho: Death Cab For Cutie
What: Bellingham, Washington’s favourite sons, indie rock archetypes gone major league, the band fronted by that guy who just barely got to Zooey Deschanel before you did – you know, DEATH CAB.
Why: There was no way their super – well, relatively – intimate club show at The Phoenix back in May just ahead of the release of Codes & Keys was going to satisfy fan demand, and so now they’re back at the sixteen-times bigger Amphitheatre. Hey, remember when they played a half-empty Horseshoe? No? I DO.
When: Friday, July 29, 2011
Where: The Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto (all-ages)
Who else: Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit will try to win over the Death Cab fans with their anthemic folk-rock. At least the ones who show up early.
How: Tickets for the show range from $33.50 to $53.50 plus fees, but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away to the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Death Cab” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body, and have those in to me before midnight, July 17. These are actual tickets that will need to be dispatched, but I figure 12 days should be enough to get them where they need to go.
What else: DIY and Billboard have interviews with the band.
