CONTEST – Forest City Lovers @ The Great Hall – April 19, 2012
Frank YangWho: Forest City Lovers
What: One of Toronto’s steadiest bands of the last half decade or so releasing three albums of folk-pop – each better than the last – most recently, 2010’s Carriage.
Why: Sadly, all things must come to an end and last week the band announced that they would be calling it a day with one final farewell show; this show.
When: Thursday, April 19, 2012
Where: The Great Hall in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Lisa Bozikovic and Kite Hill will open things up.
How: Tickets for the show are $12 in advance but courtesy of Out Of This Spark and the band, I’ve got a special prize pack to give away consisting of a pair of tickets to the show, copies of all three albums – Carriage, Haunting Moon Sinking, and The Sun & The Wind, as well as their “Phodilus and Tyto” 7″ single, a t-shirt and some buttons. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want a Forest City farewell” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight April 16.
What else: Even though the Forest City Lovers name is being retired, principal songwriter Kat Burns is hardly giving up her creative pursuits – she will continue to release music under the name of Kashka; there’s already a couple EPs available and a full-length collaboration with Ohbijou drummer James Bunton entitled Vichada is already set for a May 1 release.
