Contest: Metric at the Ryman

Our awesome friends at AEG TMG are on a roll when it comes to generosity, because they’re letting us have ANOTHER contest! This time we’re giving away tickets to see the oh-so-wonderful Metric at the beautiful Ryman Auditorium next Friday, 9/14!

As usual, all you have to do to get an entry is comment on this blog post with your favorite thing about Canada! Hey, they’re Canadian, and Canada is pretty rad.

Want an even bigger chance to win? Post a picture on our Facebook page of yourself with something Canadian or doing something Canadian. People, I want photoshopped pics of you riding a moose with a member of the Mounted Patrol while chugging maple syrup. 

Any pic will get you entered 5 extra times, but if you make me laugh or go all out you’ll probably find you name in the hat a few extra times.

I’m picking a winner next Tuesday, 9/11 so GO!

    Kevin Drew, of Broken Social Scene, is my favorite thing about Canada. Without his keen ear and eye, we may have never known the voices of Leslie Feist (Feist), Emily Haines (Metric) and Amy Milan (Stars)

    Ahhh this is so awesome!  I fell in love with Canada, and specifically Montreal, when I went there last year for a conference.  It’s a goal of mine to eventually move there, once I finish grad school and get over the fact that I’ll have to deal with snow and colder temperatures!  Some favorite things about Canada: poutine with it’s squeaky cheese curds and delicious fries, John Fluevog Shoes (the funkiest/comfiest shoes), and awesome bands/artists like Metric and Tegan & Sara!  Also, this is obvious, but Canadian maple syrup is one of the best things on earth!
