When: Wednesday, August 15, 2012
Where: Echo Beach in Toronto (all ages)
Who else: What, you want more? Pssh.
How: Tickets for the show are $52 in advance but courtesy of LiveNation, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want My Morning Horses” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that to me before midnight, August 11.
What else: Spin and NME talk to Band Of Horses leader Ben Bridwell about the new record while Jim James talks to Westword about turning to social media to pick MMJ set lists.
