If I had to pick out my favorite musical moment of 2009, it would be at the The Polaris Prize gala when The Brood hit full stride and absolutely burned down the stage as hundreds of fans and some of the most respected musicians in Canada were smashing the shit out of baking trays for percussive support. The flood lights were cooking, but the room could have been lit by the smiles of all in the room.


If you’ve seen the Brood before, you are probably saying, “they do that at every show.” EXACTLY. I’ve never heard anyone leave a Brood show without commenting on the energy they unleash night in and night out, and when you throw in Southwest, Tex Mex legends, Calexico and July 22nd @ The Phoenix becomes a can’t miss show.


We have two tickets for one lucky reader and all you need to do is leave a comment below or emails us your contact info (herohill AT gmail DOT COM). We’ll pick a winner Tuesday evening, so make with the entries folks.
