CONTEST – Nick Lowe @ The Phoenix – April 23, 2012
Dan Burn-FortiWho: Nick Lowe
What: Legendary – a term not to be used lightly but wholly appropriate in this case – English singer-songwriter whose wit and songwriting greatly influenced punk and new wave in the ’70s and ’80s and is still going strong; his last record The Old Magic came out last Fall.
Why: Though he came through town back solo in September whilst opening up for Wilco, he’s coming back for his own show and a full band.
When: Monday, April 23, 2012
Where: The Phoenix in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Local boy Peter Elkas gets to warm things up.
How: Tickets for the show are $35 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got a pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Nick Lowe” in the subject line and your full name in the body and have that in to me before midnight, April 18.
What else: Macleans has a lovely Q&A with the man.
