Scala & Kolacny Brothers are coming to Vancouver April 7th to play the Commodore Ballroom. The hauntingly beautiful choir does unusual covers, mostly of rock songs from artists like Nirvana, Kings of Leon, Metallica, and Radiohead. Their cover of “Creep” was featured in the trailer for The Social Network.

Tickets are currently available for $25 plus fees. I have also partnered with Live Nation to offer up 2 free tickets to the show, a CD, and a ‘meet and greet‘ with the performers. There are two ways that you can enter to win:

  • Leaving a comment on this post naming your favourite cover tune (1 entry)
  • Posting the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • I entered to win tickets & a chance to meet Scala & Kolacny Brothers from @livenationwest & @Miss604

    One winner will be drawn at random from all entries next Tuesday, March 29th at 3:00pm. Must be 19+ to enter and win as this is not at an all-ages venue.

    Update The winner of the tickets and the meet n’ greet is Karen!

      Omg I need to win this! Been a fan of them way before The Social Network came out. They’re so haunting and good. It’s a good kind of scary.

    3. A.J. says:

      Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine recorded a cover of “Down with the Sickness”. It’s an aptly named cheesy cover of the song that was featured in the remake of the movie Dawn of the Dead.
