CONTEST – Ash @ Lee’s Palace – November 17, 2012
What: Northern Irish Britpop/power-pop trio who’ve outlived pretty much all of their peers and are marking their twentieth anniversary as a band.
Why: It’s been some seven years since Ash have been here, but the aforementioned anniversary and series of special releases – most notably a triple-vinyl release of their A-Z singles series from 2009/2010 – is a good enough reason to make a visit.
When: Saturday, November 17, 2012
Where: Lee’s Palace in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Halifax’s period-correct – at least in inspiration if not age – Kestrels will support.
How: Tickets for the show are $15 in advance and go on sale this Friday at 10AM, but courtesy of LiveNation, you can beat the box office: 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 Ash” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in before midnight, October 11. Winners will be notified before tickets go on sale the next morning.
What Else: The band have just digitally released a covers EP entitled Little Infinity; you can stream the whole thing on their website.
