CONTEST – Gomez @ The Phoenix – July 17, 2011
Brantley GutierrezWho: Gomez
What: Veteran UK outfit and one-time Mercury winners whose rootsy brand of Britpop has remained somewhat outside of fashion and, consequently, allowed the band to have steady sort of career
Why: Their seventh album Whatever’s On Your Mind was released at the start of June and they’re one of the lucky British bands whose North American fanbase is solid enough that a tour is basically a given.
When: Sunday, July 17, 2011
Where: The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Local heroes Zeus will be opening things up.
How: Tickets are $26 in advance but courtesy of LiveNation, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Gomez” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, July 13.
What else: Glide has an interview with the band.
