Contest Time: Tom Fun Orchestra

So, as announced over the weekend, today marks the start of my Tom Fun Orchestra contest (courtesy of the fine folks at The Musebox).

I've spent quite a bit of time detailing my longlist and my Top 20 over the past month or so here on Ear To The Sound. With that in mind, to have a chance at winning a pair of tickets for their Saturday, February 21, 2009 show at the King's Head as well as a copy of their album all you have to do is send me YOUR 2008 Best Of List (and I'll accept Fives, Tens, Fifteens, Twenties or whatever). You can leave it as a comment or email me at the address at the bottom of the page. If you do send me an email, make your subject line "Tom Fun Orchestra Contest." I'll pick a random winner from the entries (NO, I won't judge you or your list - I'm trying to make it objective, not subjective) and announce it here on Friday, February 20. I'll also be running another contest on my radio show Thank God It's Free Range, live on-air between 6:30-8pm CST that same day, with yet another chance to win a pair of tickets and a copy of the album - so if your list isn't drawn tune in and call in!

Here's another selection from You Will Land With A Thud to get you ready for their show - check out "Watchmaker" and send in your entries!

You're all winners to me...

Big news. Thanks to the fine folks at The Musebox, Ear To The Sound will be running its first ever contest starting tomorrow. Halifax band (if you read the press, or Sydney band if you check out their Myspace) the Tom Fun Orchestra will be playing at the King's Head on Saturday February 21, 2009 and in conjunction with my radio show I'll be giving away two pairs of tickets and two copies of their album You Will Land With A Thud. One ticket pair/CD combo will go to a reader of Ear To The Sound and the other will go to a listener on Thank God It's Free Range.

Details of the contest will be announced tomorrow and the winners will be simultaneously annouced online and on air Friday, February 20, 2009.

Take a listen to the title-track from Tom Fun Orchestra's latest album and remember to check back tomorrow.
