CONTEST – Halifax Pop Explosion 2009

Image via MySpaceMySpaceWhen I gave away passes to the Halifax Pop Explosion last year, I genuinely thought that maybe this year would the year that I finally visited Canada’s east coast and this fine festival, thus striking two things off my “to-do” list in one fell swoop. Well… maybe next year.

And it’s not that the festival hasn’t yet again put together a terrific lineup with the best of independent Canadian talent (Final Fantasy with the Halifax Symphony Orchestra, The Acorn and Cadence Weapon to name but a few) and some top-notch international acts (Mates Of State, Girl Talk), it’s just my travel bug is wholly dormant these days and I’m quite content to stay sequestered in Hogtown for a while.

But that’s neither here nor there and once again, I have a pair of festival passes to give away to someone who’s feeling a little less homebody-ish for the week of October 20 to 24. Unless you make your home in Halifax, in which case you can probably hit more than a few shows while still getting to sleep in your own bed. Lucky ducks. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want to explode with pop in Halifax” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest closes at midnight, October 16.
