CONTEST – Said The Whale @ The Great Hall – April 13, 2012
Jonathan TaggartWho: Said The Whale
What: Vancouver pop band and one of the rare winners of the “Best New Group” Juno award that were actually a new group– oh wait, that was 2011 and they already had two albums out at that point. NEVER MIND.
Why: They released album number three – Little Mountain – at the start of March and while they’ve been touring it all around North America since then, they’re only just making it to Toronto now.
When: Friday, April 13, 2012
Where: The Great Hall in Toronto (All-ages)
Who else: Support comes from coast to coast, as in Chains Of Love from Vancouver and Boxer The Horse from PEI.
How: Tickets for the show were $20 in advance but note the past tense – this gig is sold out, so this contest (and others like it) are your only way in, as courtesy of Union Events, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want Said The Whale” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, April 11.
What else: Spinner talks to the band, who commissioned videos for every track on the new album; 9 of the 15 are out now.
