CONTEST – Osheaga 2008


I usually save the quick giveaway posts for the weekend, but considering I’m already backlogged from NXNE and other related activities, I’m going to get this one out there today and try and catch up on proper content tomorrow.

Most people don’t need an excuse to visit lovely Montreal – it has plenty to recommend itself as is – but if you do, and perhaps need something to do over the August long weekend (though as I understand it’s not a long weekend in Quebec, which makes the timing of all this just peculiar but I digress), I’m here to help. Taking place August 3 and 4 at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal is the third annual Osheaga festival, featuring unfortunate headliners The Killers and Jack Johnson, but an otherwise quite excellent lineup including Iggy & The Stooges, Cat Power, Broken Social Scene, Spiritualized, DeVotchKa, Duffy, Foals, Gogol Bordello, The Go! Team, The Kills and The Black Keys amongst many others.

And of course I wouldn’t be devoting a post to this if I didn’t have something related to give away (nor would there be the word “CONTEST” in the title. I have here in front of me, courtesy of the good folks at Osheaga, two sets of tickets for both days of the festival to give away. If you’d like to win them, send me an email at contests AT with “I Want To Go-sheaga” in the subject line and your full mailing address in the body. Contest is open to anyone who can get to Montreal for that weekend and a winner will be selected at midnight one week from today, June 20.

    You might dig this indie-pop band from Sweden called Mockingbird, Wish Me Luck. They’ve just put out an album on the label I’m interning for, Blow Up Records here in London. If you get an opportunity and are so inclined, give a quick listen at their myspace.
