Win a pair of tickets to see Pony Girl in Halifax

It’s back to school or back to whatever time, so what better time to run a contest. Ottawa’s Pony Girl are currently in Eastern Canada on a fall tour that has them travelling across the country and we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the Halifax show at the Seahorse at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 10. They’ll be joined by Halifax’s Mauno and Charottetown’s Sorrey for a concert that showcases some of Canada’s most exciting musicians (we’ve been listening to Sorrey non-stop since her EP came out last year).

On the band’s 2015 album, Foreign Life (So Sorry Records), Pony Girl draws from a palette with a diverse selection of genres to create a beautiful work of art. Elements of pop, rock, folk and electronica are meticulously placed side by side. The time and attention poured into the record is obvious after a careful listen. When so many instruments, musicians and influences come together, there’s a chance everything will go off the rails and the music will become sludge. Foreign Life avoids those risks and shows how good collaboration can be when done right. The Ottawa band is captivating on record and brings that same attention to detail to the live show.

To win a pair of tickets to the Halifax show, simply share this post on Twitter or Facebook. Share it on both if you want to a bonus entry. Make sure you follow us so we can contact the winner. Contest closes on Friday at 4p.m. AST.
