Contest: Win Tix to Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Os Mutantes

Posted by Greg / November 13, 2010

Talk about a killer double bill, right? A prolific freak-folk artist who always throws a good party, and a legendary, recently reunited Brazilian psych-rock group who headlined Pop Montreal last month. The two will burst onto the stage at Le National Tuesday night in what will likely be one of the most raging shows of the year. Will you be there? Well, Midnight Poutine is gonna help you answer "yes" to that question.

We have two pairs of tickets to give away. If you want them, all you gotta do is help out with a little scuffle that started between me and Jeremy Morris on the Montreal Weekend Playlist this week. He seems to think the name "Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti" is clunky, difficult to remember, easy to screw up, and all around not very cool. I think all band names are random and weird (Strawberry Alarm Clock, anyone?), so why bother picking on this one? Thing is, I like Jer. He's a good dude. And when he has a strong opinion about something, I'll at least consider the possibility that he's right.

So here's how the contest will work. In the comments section below, replace the words "Haunted Graffiti" with something better. Something that might roll of the tongue more easily, something more meaningful, something more memorable, etc. If we can come up with that perfect, magical combination of words that will delight Jer into a frenzy of delightedness, then maybe I'll write it on a post card and send it to Ariel himself.

Even if that doesn't happen, we're giving away these tickets! Leave your comment no later that 11:59am on November 15. The winner will be selected by random draw and contacted ASAP. Be sure to include your real e-mail address so I can get in touch with the good news. Include your e-mail address too if you are writing from FACEBOOK.

Best of luck to everyone!

Ariel Pink's Backwards Saying

Not sure why, but I think that's pretty cool.
Also, with those two bands in the mix it's gonna be a great show. (:

"Ariel Pink's Undaunted Sweetie"
maybe not less clunky, and possibly harder to remember, but I think it works.

Okay everyone, contest closed! The winners have been contacted. If you did not hear from me within the past few minutes, then I'm sorry, you did not win the random draw.

Let me just add that my two favorites were Ariel Pink's Sweater Bomb and Ariel Pink's Pussy Parfait. Good job, you two. Now I have to write those names on a paper airplane and fly it at Ariel mid concert...
