Win two tickets to see Tim Fite at the Drake on April 1

tim fite

One of my favourite mad scientist musicians, Tim Fite, will be coming back to Toronto this weekend (April 1) in support of his new album Ain’t Ain’t Ain’t. If you’ve ever seen him live, you know you’ll want to again, and if you haven’t yet, well know you’re missing out on one of the kookiest interactive and heartwearming performances out there.

Heres Tim when I saw him at Lee’s Palace in 2008, with his three back up singers: himself.

Courtesy of ANTI-, here’s your chance to win entry for you and a pal to Sunday’s show.

Contest closes Friday at 4. Only the winner will be contacted.


Contest: Win two tickets to HotKid, the Cheap Speakers, Dilly Dally & Alex Pulec DJ set

One lucky person and one lucky friend of theirs will win guest list spots to next Friday’s (July 15) killer Two Way Monologues show at Sneaky Dee’s. The wicked lineup is Dilly Dally, the Cheap Speakers, HotKid and a DJ set by the Ruby Spirit’s Alex Pulec.

I will compile all the entries and pick a winner from a random draw. I will only contact the winner.

12:01AM Thursday July 12

Dilly Dally is a Newmarket-based pile of spunk. Their sound feels like those summer memories years ago that are just a daze but you’re reaching out in front of you trying to get them back just for a taste. It’s woozy but in the kind of way that one eyebrow is raised, always at the ready.

The Cheap Speakers is a Toronto rock band that I forsee will turn the volume and the crowd up on Friday night. They’re polite rabble rousers and it makes for a refreshing attitude. They’ve recently come off of an Eastern Canadian tour and are apparently armed with new material.

HotKid was on tour with Sloan just last week. The guy/gal duo have updated their website with blog posts about it a bazillion times since, so I’ll say there’s not much doubt that their excitement will be gone by next Friday yet, and I’m looking forward to hearing them blow the roof off the venue with their gritty garage rock.

Alex Pulec has been getting into DJ’ing surf rock and rockabilly around town lately and he’s ready to take over the last spot of the night, letting everyone continue to sweat it out to dance moves across the jumpy Sneaky’s floor. He’s been beefing up his vinyl collection, so get ready to Rock Around the Clock (or at least until last call).

Good luck!
