CONTEST – Archers Of Loaf @ The Phoenix – June 16, 2012
Sandlin GaitherWho: Archers Of Loaf
What: Legendary ’90s college rock outfit led by Eric Bachmann who unexpectedly reunited last year to mark the re-releases of their back catalog and also to show the kids how it’s done. How what’s done? How EVERYTHING is done.
Why: The Archers have slowly but steadily been hitting major (and minor) markets and finally, it’s Toronto’s turn. And while the show isn’t technically part of NXNE – though a number of wristband-holders will be admitted – the Archers documentary live film What Did You Expect? will be making its world premiere at the festival the night before.
When: Saturday, June 16, 2012
Where: The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Toronto’s Metz open up.
How: Tickets for the show are $25.50 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts and Merge, I’ve got a grand prize pack consisting of one pair of passes to the show and copies of both reissues so far – Icky Mettle and Vee Vee – on LP and a second prize of a pair of passes to the show to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to be an “Archer of Loaf-crosse” (yes, that’s right) in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body; if you don’t want the records and just want to be entered for the passes, make a note of that in the email. Contest closes at midnight, June 8.
