CONTEST – Beth Orton @ The Mod Club – September 30, 2012
Jo Metson ScottWho: Beth Orton
What: Artist who’s gone from being “comedown queen” for the rave generation to one of England’s finest contemporary folk/singer-songwriter artists.
Why: After an extended break – her last album came out six years ago – she’s readying her fifth album in Sugaring Season, due out October 2. And with that comes her first North American tour in some four years; a set of dates in 2010 were cancelled almost as quickly as they were announced.
When: Sunday, September 30, 2012
Where: The Mod Club in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Vermont native Sam Amidon supports the tour.
How: Tickets for the show are $25 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 to see Beth Orton” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that to me by midnight, September 26.
What else: The Philadelphia Inquirer, Irish Times, and The News Leader have interviews with Orton.
