Contest:: Win 2 Tix to Deep Dark Woods & Elliott Brood

I'm not sure if a better show will come through Halifax in the few months. Without a doubt, Polaris short lister Alberta's Elliott Brood and criminally overlooked The Deep Dark Woods from SK are going to absolutely burn down The Paragon on November 13th, and we want to give one lucky reader the chance to see both acts for free. Hell, you can even take a guest.

Everyone already knows and loves the Brood - I'd say that there performance at the Polaris gala stole the show - but Halifax, when it comes to amazing roots acts that will blow your mind, it's DDW. Their latest record - Winter Hours (review) - can be described with words like, "devastating", "powerful", and "amazing" but the way they transform when the lights hit is fantastic. Their sound is bigger and more muscular, but they never lose the tight harmonies and precision.

So to win the tix, just drop us an email with your name and details (herohill AT gmail DOT COM) or leave the pertinent info in the comments. Contest closes Wednesday to ensure we get your name on the list, so enter now!

I envy anyone going to this show. I'm seeing Elliott Brood the next night here in St. John's, but DDW aren't making the trip. Kinda disappointed over that.

Elliott Brood are from Windsor/Toronto, Ontario. No biggie. It's a common misconception due to their ode to the Wildrose province, Oh Alberta.
