CONTEST – Keane @ The Sound Academy – June 19, 2012
Alex LakeWho: Keane
What: Vanguard of the British piano-rock scene, which currently includes such acts as Keane.
Why: They released their fourth album Strangeland at the start of May, and while not the arena-scale, chart-topping act that they are back home, their fanbase in North America is still devout enough to fill large halls and follow them around on tour.
When: Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Where: The Sound Academy in Toronto (all-ages)
Who else: England’s Mystery Jets support, making it a super-solid bill.
How: Tickets for the show are $46.50 in advance but courtesy of Universal Music Canada, I’ve got one grand prize consisting of a pair of passes to the show and a copy of Strangeland, and
an indeterminate number of 30 secondary prizes consisting of Strangeland CDs to give away. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want Keane” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body – if you want to be eligible for the passes, please say so and if you just want to enter for a free CD, note that as well; have that in to me before midnight, June 13. Contest is open to residents of Canada, though obviously if you want to go to the show it helps to be in the 416/905. Maybe 519 if you’re really – wait for it – keen. OH! Update: And courtesy of LiveNation, I now have a second pair of passes for the show to give away so that’s two grand prizes!
What else: There’s features on the band at NME, Alternative Addiction, and USA Today.
