CONTEST – Said The Whale @ The Mod Club – September 8, 2011
Marcus JollyWho: Said The Whale
What: Purveyors of effervescent pop with a distinctive west coast accent, which makes sense since the five-piece hail from Vancouver.
Why: Their last full-length Islands Disappear came out back in 2009 but they’ve been busy, touring relentlessly and being subjects of the mini-documentary Winning America, which followed them to SXSW this year in attempts to become the next big thing and captured such ups and downs as having all their gear stolen en route to Texas but also winning “New Group Of The Year” at the Juno awards a couple weeks later. KARMA!
When: Thursday, September 8, 2011
Where: The Mod Club in Toronto (All-ages)
Who else: Saskatchewan’s Rah Rah and English singer-songwriter Sara Lowes will be warming things up.
How: Tickets for the show are $15 in advance but courtesy of Union Events, I’ve got four pairs of passes to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to be winning Said The Whale” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, September 1.
