CONTEST – The Dø @ Lee’s Palace – August 3, 2012
Frank YangWho: The Dø
What: Wildly eclectic Franco-Finnish art-pop duo who draw on rock, folk, electro, and soul influences in equal measure and make them into something quite unique.
Why: Their latest album Both Ways Open Jaws came out in Spring of 2011 in Europe, but not until that November in North America, so they’ve got a reasonable excuse for taking so long to come back to town – they were last here in September 2010.
When: Friday, August 3, 2012
Where: Lee’s Palace in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Support is still to be announced
How: Tickets for the show are $15 in advance but courtesy of Livenation, I’ve got a pairs of passes and copy of the new album on CD to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want The Dø” in the subject line – the slashed o is required – and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, July 31.
What else: They just debuted a new video from Both Ways at NPR. The San Francisco Examiner also has a quick interview.
