CONTEST – Benjamin Gibbard @ The Danforth Music Hall – October 14, 2012
Ryan RussellWho: Benjamin Gibbard
What: Though you’d think that being frontman and songwriter for Washington state indie rock fixtures Death Cab For Cutie would provide sufficient creative outlet, apparently there are some songs that demand to be released under his full, given name. These must be the really personal, emotion-baring ones.
Why: His solo debut Former Lives is out October 16 but Gibbard will preview it at a special, one-off show in Toronto a couple days prior – the rest of the tour doesn’t start until November.
When: Sunday, October 14, 2012
Where: The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto (all-ages)
Who else: Local hero Julie Doiron opens up.
How: Tickets for the show are $25.50 to $35 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Benjamin Gibbard” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that to me by midnight, October 11.
