CONTEST – Cat Power & The Dirty Delta Blues Band @ The Phoenix – July 10, 2007

So for the third time in ten months, Ms Chan Marshall is bringing her Cat Power back to Toronto for a show at the Phoenix on July 10. To be fair, each time through it’s been in a completely different configuration – in September at Lee’s it was just her solo, while the November show at the Phoenix featured the full Memphis Rhythm Band. This time, it’s with the Dirty Delta Blues Band, a lean, mean four-piece outfit. I imagine she’s still touring the Shortlist-winning The Greatest, though I would expect to hear material from her next album The Sun, slated for release next Spring.

But before then, there’s supposed to be a sequel to The Covers Record – whether it will actually see the light of day when it’s supposed to is anyone’s guess, but it serves as a good segue into the contest portion of this here post. Courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for this show and to enter, I want you to leave a comment telling me what song you would most like to hear Cat Power cover. I’ll also need your full name and an email to contact you at (funk it up to foil spambots if you need). This contest will close at midnight, July 7 and winners will be selected randomly so if you choose something utterly dubious or obviously nonsensical, like Metallica’s “One”, it won’t be held against you. Or maybe it will. Try me.
