CONTEST – Yukon Blonde @ Lee’s Palace – April 12, 2012
Who: Yukon Blonde
What: Classic rocking Vancouver quartet who know the importance of having a musical portfolio with a good balance of hooks and riffs.
Why: Their second album Tiger Talk was released at the start of March and the reception has been enough to justify a two-night stand in Toronto on their cross-Canada tour.
When: Thursday, April 12, 2012
Where: Lee’s Palace in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Support for the whole tour comes from Saskatchewan’s Library Voices and Great Bloomers round out the bill with some local flavour.
How: Tickets for the show are $15 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the Thursday night show as well as a copy of Tiger Talk on LP. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with, “I want to see Yukon Blonde” and your full name in the body, and also note if you are equipped to and interested in spinning vinyl – one winner will get the passes and the LP, another will just get the passes. And be quick like bunny, the contest closes tomorrow – April 11 – at 5PM.
What else: The band is featured in pieces at The Telegram, Uptown, Spinner, and here, while DIY has both a complete stream of the album (which only just came out in the UK last week) and track-by-track commentary from the band.
