When: October 15 through 23, 2011

CONTEST – Buke & Gass @ Sneaky Dee’s – December 4, 2010

Photo By Grant CornettGrant CornettWho: Buke & Gass
What: Brooklyn duo whose unique angle is the use of homemade, hybrid instruments – specifically a modded baritone ukulele and a guitar-bass mash-up. The buke and the gass – get it?
Why: Though they visited a couple times in the Summer, their debut Riposte only came out in September and so it’s time for a proper promotional visit
When: Saturday, December 4, 2010
Where: Sneaky Dee’s in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Support comes from Brooklyn’s Talk Normal and Toronto’s Doldrums
How: Tickets for the show are $10 in advance but courtesy of Union Events, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want some Buke & Gass” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, November 30.
