CONTEST – Islands @ The Music Gallery – February 28, 2012
Liam MaloneyWho: Islands
What: Endlessly malleable Montreal pop outfit led by Nick Thorburn.
Why: Their latest album A Sleep & A Forgetting, an uncharacteristically dark and stark meditation on love and loss, was released earlier this week.
When: Tuesday, February 28, 2012
Where: The Music Gallery / St. George the Martyr Church in Toronto (all-ages)
Who else: Kentucky’s Idiot Glee support.
How: Tickets for the show are $22.50 in advance but courtesy of Union Events, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Islands” in the subject line and your full name in the body; contest closes at midnight, February 23.
What else: There’s interviews with Thorburn at Exclaim, The Ottawa Citizen, Sticky, and The National Post while MTV asks for some advice on dating indie rockers (don’t) and The Los Angeles Times solicits a playlist of sad songs.
