CD + Ticket Giveaway: The Whitsundays, Pick A Piper, and The Superstitions @ Sneaky Dee’s, 3 Apr.

The Whitsundays, an Edmonton group featuring members of The Faunts, Shout Out Out Out Out, and The Wet Secrets, play lush 60s-inspired psychedelic pop. To my mind they sound like Magnetic Fields, Plants & Animals, and The Beatles all rolled into one. In other words: good stuff. Currently on tour, they stop in at Sneaky Dee’s this Friday along with locals The Superstitions, and Pick A Piper, another group boasting members from other bands (Brad Weber from Caribou, for instance).

Download: “Sorry James” and "It Must Be Me" off The Whitsundays’s s/t full-length (2008).
Download: “Of Sound Mind” by The Superstitions (Honey In the Lion’s Ear, 2008).

Courtesy Pop Echo Records I’ve got a couple CDs to give away, and thanks to No Shame, I’ve got two pairs of tickets to the show to hand out. So that means I’ve got two prize-packs (each consisting of 2 show tix + 1 CD) to distribute! For a chance to get yourself one of these, send me an e-mail at historyjenATgmailDOTcom with “Whitsundays” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body. Deadline to enter is 11:59am on Thursday, 2 April, and I’ll let you know if you’re a winner shortly thereafter. If you don’t win, you can still head to the show Friday night. Tickets are $8 in advance (from Soundscapes or Rotate This), or $10 at the door. Well worth it. Doors are at 9pm, and The Superstitions go on first.

UPDATE: Congrats to winners Steve and Anamarija.
