CONTEST - Win TIX to see Dog Day

Posted by Jer / March 3, 2009

Halifax-based foursome, Dog Day, is in town this weekend and they're bringing with them a sneak peak of their forthcoming album, Concentration. While it may not be as awesome as the soundtrack to this, or even remotely related to either version of the game by the same name, Concentration should certainly grab the (err...) attention of Canadian indie fans. After they're done rocking their way to Toronto, Dog Day is planning to meet up with Rick White (of Eric's Trip fame, who is now a producer), to record a four-song EP. That means there's a lot of new Dog Day tunes on the way (which is a good thing for all of us).

If you've yet to lay ears on this fine quartet, we've got two pairs of tickets to give away to their show this Friday at the Green Room. Details on how to win after the jump.

Winning is as easy as poutine is after a few beers. Just write a comment below and name your favourite retro childhood board/card game (other than Concentration) or televised game show (other than Concentration). The two comments that most adequately/hilariously/awkwardly take me back to my youth win. Contest closes on Thursday at 5pm.

Candy Land: My younger sister used to make me play with her, and I'd pretend to hate it. (But I always secretly liked jumping the colours)

Milles Bournes gathers a ton of childhood memories for me.

Altough, I never got the point of the game, or the rules, until early in my twenties when I played it again.

So the game was basically 'stop n go' for me when I was kid and still, it was fun.

not sure if this is a democratic process at all, but can i vote for the hamburger game? i loved that game!! thinking of it instantly transports me to sitting on the carpet of the house i grew up in and playing it with my sister. maybe i played it too much though, cos since then i became vegetarian and don't eat hamburgers...

Wow. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane everyone. Those are great suggestions.

In the end, our jury of experts (i.e. me) decided to go with Chittah's selection of Candyland (because the game was so wonderfully colorful) and Dmk's hamburger game (because even though this isn't really a democratic process, it's great that you got a vote).

I'm sad to not have been able to award I Vant to Bite Your Finger with something, if only because Hadleigh was so perfectly succinct in her reasoning. Seriously.

Thanks to all for participating. More contests soon.
