[CONTEST] Win FREE Tickets to See Rapper Stalley Live in Toronto TOMORROW (Feb. 1)

Stalley Live in Toronto wth Devontee at Revival Bar February 1 From Me To You

Stalley is one of our favorites here at The Kitchen. His O.H.I.O. album was one of the under-appreciated classics of 2014, but not around these parts. His brand of streetwise-but-thoughtful, classic-meets-contemporary hip-hop is right up our alley so we were super psyched to learn that he was coming to Toronto this week (TOMORROW in fact) as part of his current From Me To You tour. Thanks to the good people at The Academy Presents, we are able to offer one free pair of tickets. Wanna win them? Here’s the drill:

1. Follow me on twitter at @Stellaskid (necessary so I can DM you in the event that you win)

2. Tweet the following message exactly: “Hey @Stellaskid: I wanna win tickets to see @Stalley at @RevivalBarTO in Toronto on Feb. 1” (note: no quotation marks needed, just the message inside the quotation marks is fine)

Simply RT-ing any tweets I do promoting this contest does NOT enter you to win (unless there no entrants!). The contest will close at 12 noon EST tomorrow (Monday Feb. 1). The winner will be notified via twitter DM. Winner will also be responsible for their own transportation to the show.

For more info on the show, CLICK HERE: Facebook | tickets

Not up on Stalley? Then peep these tracks from his brand new, just released (last night) new mixtape album Saving Yusuf. Like what you hear? Listen the album in its entirety HERE.

[CONTEST] Win Tickets to See Absolutely Free & Keita Juma at X Avant X in Toronto Oct. 18

X Avant X: Absolutely Free + Keita Juma at the Music Gallery

If your read the Kitchen regularly, you already know who Keita Juma is. If you’re not familiar with Toronto’s experimental pop trio, Absolutely Free though, think a slightly darker, more leftfield take on Toro Y Moi‘s music and that’ll give you somewhat of a sense of their sound.

The bottom line though, we are giving away one pair of tickets to see both live at the Music Gallery this Sunday (Oct. 18) as part of the X Avant X festival so you’d be out of your mind not to try and win them. We’ll make this pretty simple:

1. Follow me on twitter at @Stellaskid (necessary so I can DM you in the event that you win)

2. Tweet the following message exactly: “Hey @Stellaskid: I wanna win tickets to see @FreeAbsolutely & @kjforshort at @musicgalleryTO in Toronto on Oct. 18” (note: no quotation marks needed, just the message inside the quotation marks is fine)

Simply RT-ing any tweets I do promoting this contest does NOT enter you to win. The contest will close at 6PM EST on Saturday (Oct. 17). The winner will be notified via twitter DM. Winner will also be responsible for their own transportation to the show.

(Thank you to David Dacks and the Music Gallery for helping to facilitate this contest with free tickets.)
