Contest:: Win 2tix to Gord Downie @ The Cohn

It’s been a while since Gord Downie has come to town, and despite the fact that 90% of the Hip’s fans are insufferable idiots no one wants to be around, the man is a Canadian music legend and can pen a song that stands the test of time. Quite unexpectedly, I thoroughly enjoyed his latest, Walla produced solo effort, The Grand Bounce (review), and I have to admit I’m pretty excited about seeing Downie & The Country Miracles - his backing band that includes Morningstar, Clark, Doiron, and Finlayson - in a sit down venue.


Gord will be taking center stage at The Cohn on October 15th, and thanks to the good people at Sonic Concerts we have two tickets for one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave your details in the comment section or email us - HEROHILL AT GMAIL DOT COM - the pertinents. We will pick a winner next Tuesday.


Since major labels are kind of like Gary Busey - you never want to f*ck with them - instead of giving away an illegal track, I’ll simply point you to a terrific cover of Gord’s work by another STELLAR Canadian band. Enjoy & good luck.

gord’s solo stuff is pretty great, (most)hipfans suck, but i usually stick up for them when they are bashed. it seems that most dickhipfans stopped listening to them after “up to here”. i usually pcik up what they put out, i think they get a bit more interesting with each new album. but gord’s solo stuff pretty much is a dream team of cool musicians.
