CONTEST - Win A.C. Newman TIX for Thurs Mar. 12

Posted by Jer / March 11, 2009

20090311acnewman.jpg
Shiny pop troubadour and New Pornographer A.C. (Call me Carl) Newman is in Montreal tomorrow (Thurs. Mar. 12) for a rapid-fire double bill. Most artists would be content to stop at one gig in one night, but Newman, eager to share sounds from his new disc Get Guilty, is planning to rock the city twice within the span of 4 hours.

The main show is at Il Motore. Doors are at 8:30pm, tickets are $12. But Newman's doing a smaller, more intimate pre-show show at the Apple Store on Ste. Catherine at 7pm. There are no tickets for this (first come, first served = limited capacity) but Midnight Poutine has superpower-like abilities to bend the rules just for you.

That's right. We're giving you a chance to check A.C. Newman out at the Apple Store, admission guaranteed (courtesy of nous and the folks at Last Gang Records).

Details after the jump...

All you have to do is comment on this post below. Tell us one of the following:
a) the name of AC Newman's first album (which, while I'm at it is an infectious indie pop affair)
or
b) the name of your favourite New Pornographer (which should probably be Carl, for the purpose of this contest).

Due to the time sensitive nature of this show (it's tomorrow!) we're going to go with the classic first-2-responses-win format. The first two entrants will each get 2 glorious spots on the guest list at the Apple Store. While the rest of the Ste. Catherines crowd will be walking away dejected, you can laugh at them and sing them the melody of your favourite A.C. song. Although Midnight Poutine does not condone such rude and hurtful civic behaviour, how you gloat your victory is up to you.

Ok. Go.

his first solo album (to the best of my knowledge) is the slow wonder. and there is a tie for my favourite new pornographers member between him and his niece kathryn (from immaculate machine) who joins them sometimes.
