CONTEST – Leslie & The LYs @ The Garrison – February 16, 2010

Photo via MySpaceMySpaceThere’s something deliberately amateurish in the Leslie & The LYs aesthetic, what with the over-top-top costumes, unapologetic homebrew-ness of her videos and the lo-fi GarageBand beats and bleeps that back her raps, but that can’t hide the fact that Iowa’s Leslie Hall can write some seriously catchy and kind of hilarious tunes.

So with that kind of larger-than-life online persona, one can only imagine what to expect from the live show – well actually, we already sort of know – the press release for her upcoming tour in support of new album Back 2 Back Palz promised “video projection & 3-6 costume changes (all lovingly hand sewn by her mother)” and “laserbeam dance moves have been known to cause near blindness in the fans that gather at her shows”. Sooooo yeah, how can you say no to that?

The Toronto stop comes next Tuesday, February 16, at The Garrison. Tickets are $12 in advance but courtesy of REMG, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away to the show. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want to see Leslie & The LYs” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, February 11, and I will not be held responsible for any near blindness that may occur as a result of attending the show.
