CONTEST - Free Tix to Wild Sweet Orange

Posted by Jer / February 4, 2008

Hailing from the deep south that is Birmingham, Alabama, Wild Sweet Orange has the kind of name that makes you want to pronounce sahhhweeeeet like a crazy cattle rancher. Their sound is dipped in southern charm, but there's plenty of emo and indie rock in there to confuse any genre labels you throw at them. The band is relatively new on the scene; their debut full length will be released later this year. If it sounds anything like the punchy EP they've recently released, The Whale, they're on the right track.

Wild Sweet Orange is in Montreal this week, earning their keep at Petit Campus (Wed. Feb. 6th) and Midnight Poutine wants to give you, yes YOU, a pair of free tickets.

We've got one set to give away, and it will go to the person who can tell me what the Owl says to the Bird in this trippy video for "Wrestle with God". Post your response as a comment below. The most interesting/creative/entertaining answer wins. Contest closes on Tuesday Feb. 5 at 5pm.

"You," the owl said in a raspy voice that hadn't been used in years.

The small bird looked around, "me?" he questioned?

"Is there anyone else in this dark abyss? We are alone," the owl said gravely.

The bird wasn't sure if he sensed danger or his own fear, but he had been running for what felt like forever. More than anything he wanted an end.

The owl spoke again.

"Use your infinite nature. Think about microwavable bacon and naturally occurring cauliflower fractals and those weird gooey glow in the dark bugs on the planet earth dvds. Holy Jesus they scare me..."

"Anyways, remember what I said about the infinite nature."

"My infinite nature?" the bird replied in confusion.

"Yes. Just imagine you are at a cliff and all that exists is sky and ocean. You can be the air or the water -or both. It will never matter."

The small bird turned and kept running until he met his infinite nature. He jumped off the edge but felt no fear. As the air rushed past his plummeting body he thought only of everything and nothing.

the Owl said simply
"I was robbed in the Midnight Poutine DJ Shadow Tickets contest" ..


The Owl needs to learn to let things go.

Wait. Why would the Owl say that? The owl wasn't robbed. I don't think the owl entered the shadow contest! ;)
