As we gear up for concert season, our dance card is getting pretty full. Luckily a lot of great bands tend to make their way over to our fair city to treat us with some excellent live shows – which are always a good time. It just so happens that through the magic of my contact form, and the band’s management, I have two tickets to give away for upcoming concert at The Plaza Club featuring The Submarines.

  • What: Bellx1 (with The Submarines)
  • When: March 29th, 2008
  • Where: The Plaza Club on Granville
  • About The Submarines: “The Submarines are an indie pop band from Los Angeles, California…” [wiki]
  • Side note: In 2006 The Submarines made the component tracks for their song “Peace & Hate” available for remix under a by nc-sa Creative Commons license (same as the license on on the Jamglue online mixing site as a contest.

    From what I’ve heard so far, The Submarines seem to have the 1 man, 1 women element of Mates of State, plus the softer melodies of Stars. You can visit their Facebook page, sample a few songs on their MySpace, and here’s a little something from YouTube:

    If you’d like to go to the concert, simply leave a comment below and as usual with my contests, I’ll draw the winners name. The deadline to enter is March 24th, 2008 – Good luck!

    6. […] Back in March I received a review copy of The Submarine’s album Honeysuckle Weeks. I really enjoyed it and became a big fan although I was unable to attend their concert (though I was given some tickets to give away on my blog). […]

    7. […] to The Submarines last year when their label, Nettwerk, contacted me, asking if I’d like to give away tickets to their show in Vancouver. Since then I’ve been a fan (they remind me of my love of husband/wife duos ie. Mates of […]
