It is now warm and sunny outside, which pairs perfectly with a bottle of wine and also, the Trashcan Sinatras! The Scottish band reunited a few years ago and actually played a Toronto show, but it was at someone’s house, which was quite strange. However, this time around, they are playing a proper venue. On June 4th, they will be at the Horseshoe playing two of their most beloved records – 1990’s Cake and 1993’s I’ve Seen Everything.

“Obscurity Knocks,” the first ever single released by this group is still a song I have on my playlist to this day, it’s a catchy, jangly summery vibe always brings a smile to my face and it’s a good representation of their tracks so definitely check it out at the bottom of the post. Based on their music, you would never guess that the group comes from the rainy dredges of Scotland.

Anyways, we are here to give away a pair of tickets to the show! to enter, you can do one of many things.

1. Follow us on twitter and retweet the post
2. Send an email to panic@panicmanual.com with the subject “I want to go see Trashcan Sinatras” in the subject and your name in the body
3. Comment on this on the facebook post.

Winners will be chosen at random and alerted via carrier pigeon sometime before the show. In this economy, you can’t afford to not enter!

Song Of The Day: No Joy/Sonic Boom – Triangle Probably

Posted on by Paul in Song of the Day | Leave a comment

After a few years of doing her thing in the standard rock band setup, No Joy’s Jasamine White-Gluz is branching out into other forms of music-making for her latest release, a collaboration with Sonic Boom aka Pete Kember. The resulting EP, unsurprisingly entitled No Joy/Sonic Boom, takes things in a more electronic, spacey direction, as anyone who’s heard Kember’s previous output as Sonic Boom would expect.

The video for “Triangle Probably” seems to be made up of just a bunch of weird, random computer animation stuff, including a cursor that appears occasionally on screen. Check it out below:
