Razorlight Update!

Thursday, March 8th, 2007

**Contest extended to March 23rd!** 

This is for everyone that purchased a ticket to Razorlight at the Mod Club Theatre, March 1st.  Our sincerest apologies for the late cancellation of the show.  As of right now we are offering full refunds at your point of purchase.  Best efforts were made to reschedule the show, but we were unable to confirm a date as of yet and definitely don’t want to make everyone wait.  They will be back!

Please see the following message from Razorlight’s management team.  They have a fantastic offer!

As a gesture to fans who came to the Razorlight show at the Mod Club in Toronto on March 1st and found that it had been cancelled at the last minute, the band have decided they want to offer fans the chance to see Razorlight play in London. After arriving in Toronto in a blizzard and having to pull the show when Johnny Borrell and Bjorn Agren came down with flu, they wanted to find a way to make up for the loss of the show.  Ticketholders can enter the contest simply by sending an e-mail to feedback (at) emerge (dot) ca and sighting the barcode number on their ticket (12 digit number, right side of the ticket) along with full contact information. On Friday March 23rd the submitted e-mails will be pooled, and two barcode numbers will be chosen at random.  The winners will be informed that afternoon.  So, what exactly will you win?  Flights, and accommodations for 2 nights in London for two people, along with two tickets to see Razorlight play at Earls Court on April 8th.  Its sold out with 17,000 people so it will be an amazing night.  You’ll need passports and to be able to travel to  London leaving April 7 for a couple of days.  Razorlight are also going to try to reschedule the Toronto show as soon as possible.

Johnny Borrell says: “We were really looking forward to the show in Toronto and I was gutted that we had to cancel at the last moment. I know how frustrating it is for the fans to have show pulled at the last moment. I saw the Raveonettes do this once, when we supporting them in Bristol a few years ago, and I know how frustrating it is for the band and the fans. It’s the first show that we’ve pulled due to illness for over 2 years, and we just wanted to do something to try and make up for it particularly to the fans who undertook the journey through the blizzard and snow that night. Hopefully, we’ll be back in may sometime and we will see you there.”

Holy crap! Win tickets, Mute Math, Wolfmother, Bloc Party?!

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

What a start to the new year.  I’m so jazzed about the Earl Greyhound and Satin Peaches shows the first 5 people to email feedback (at) emerge (dot) ca will get a pair of ticket to BOTH shows.  These two bands and the two shows are going to be bananas.  Dan Burke called Earl Greyhound “Jimi Hendrix in reverse” – isn’t that way better than the two film dudes four thumbs up?

Mute Math is coming to Toronto on March 8th at The Opera House.  Limited CMW passes will be accepted.  These guys killed it at Bonnaroo last year and a bunch of other festivals.  Their show at the Elmo had a line-up around the block.

Did you go to V?  Did you see Wolfmother?  Did you go to their Drake show?  All their shows have been bananas.  They’re going to put on a show that you won’t forget any time soon and they keep the hits coming.  “Joker and the thief” and “Woman” are only two of the gems.  March 6th at the Kool Haus.

Finally, I guess the press release is out about the Bloc Party tour at Pitchfork – expect news from us about both Toronto and Montreal dates in the next week or so with regards to on-sale and ticket price.  Sign up for the mailing list and don’t miss out.

You know what – Emerge has a big birthday this year, 1st person to email feedback (at) emerge (dot) ca letting us know what anniversary we’re celebrating this year gets a pair to all the shows… Earl Greyhound, The Satin Peaches, Wolfmother, Bloc Party!  Oh my!

Keep the faith…

Happy ’07 and thanks for ’06

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

Hello one and all blog readers.

First of all I wanted to thank everyone for the support in 2006. It was a great year with some great shows including the June Island show, the Virgin Festival and some insane club shows. We’re looking forward to some great highlights in 2007.

Earl Greyhound

A couple shows in early ’07 that we’re super stoked about include The Satin Peaches who are going to be playing a series of shows in Toronto in the first half of the year. They’re from Detroit and have some serious rock & roll people saying some pretty serious rock & roll things about them. They’ll be playing The Drake on Jan 26th. Their song “Well Well Well Well” – well, its a hit, reminds us that spring is on the way.

Also hitting hard in the press world are Earl Greyhound. I don’t know about you but I just had to bust out the Jack Daniels’ when I heard SOS for the first time. That is some serious guitar and some serious dirty dirty soul or something devilish for sure. Earl Greyhound bring their sins into the Silver Dollar on Jan 18th. Miss this and you’ll be sorry. Dan Burke’s put a couple of his proteges on the bill including Speed Control and No Dynamics.

We have a bunch of other shows we are working on for the new year and are excited about all the great music coming out in 2007. Some big announcements are on the way club show, big show and festival wise so keep your eyes and ears open… from coast to coast.

We value your feedback so keep it coming, visit our website and send us some love and/or hate.
