CONTEST – Mogwai @ The Phoenix – June 18, 2012
Steve GullickWho: Mogwai
What: Scottish post-rock legends who entered their second decade of activity with last year’s excellent Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will.
Why: Though they already toured Hardcore through town last Spring, but the band have publicly stated that this is “the last extensive touring we do for some time”, so if you were on the fence… let that be a nudge.
When: Monday, June 18, 2012
Where: The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Balam Acab opens up. I know nothing about Balam Acab.
How: Tickets for the show are $30.50 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 Mogwai” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, June 14.
What else: Having gotten one film score under their belt with 2007’s Zidane, Exclaim has details on their next cinematic venture – a score for the still-to-be-made documentary film Hudson River Project.
