SCENE and AUX present secret shows with Kongos and New Politics

July 10, 2014

Last month, we mentioned that we were cookin’ up something good with SCENE, the good people who bring you free movies. We mentioned that we’re planning two huge concerts in Toronto and Vancouver, and today, we’re pumped to roll out the details. Drumroll, please: First up, in Toronto on August 11, we present Kongos at Adelaide Hall. And secondly, in Vancouver, we’re bringing you New Politics on September 15 at the Electric Owl!

Here’s the thing about these shows: They’re going to be super intimate. It’ll be your chance to catch Kongos or New Politics, picture above, ahead of the curve (and in awesome, decked-out venues). Even better? We’re giving away 200 tickets to each show. What that means? 100 lucky people will get passes to each show, and they’ll be able to bring a friend as a +1.

So, how do you get in? First, head on over to SCENE’s contest page and enter your details. Along with our 100-ticket sweepstakes, one lucky grand prize winner (and a very fortunate pal of their choice) is going to get pampered: If you’re selected as the ultimate winner gagnant, we’ll fly you and a friend to either Toronto or Vancouver, put you both up in a swank hotel, arrange a meet and greet with the bands, and arm you with a cool $500 cash.

We’re still unveiling the details—check the #SCENEALLACCESS hashtag for updates—but suffice to say, you should sign up right now.

To get you psyched for it all, we’re just going to leave these two little bangers here for you. First, here’s “Come With Me Now,” by Phoenix-dwelling Kongos.

And “Harlem,” by Brooklyn’s New Politics. We recommend adding them to your playlists on the ASAP.
