Broken Social Scene at the Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park (Concerts in the Park)

Who loves Broken Social Scene, even though they don’t follow me on Twitter? ME, OF COURSE! (I know, I’ve always joked with my good friend Jay Catalan, cofounder of The Network Hub, that Canadian indie band Broken Social Scene, one of my absolute favorites, follows Jay on Twitter). At any rate, I’m sure I’m not alone in being an absolute lover of Broken Social Scene. “Forced To Love” is one of the songs I walk with and exercise along.

Broken Social Scene

Lucky for a reader of mine, I have a pair of tickets to give away to the upcoming (September 24th, 2011) concert presented by Live Nation West and co-produced by Sealed With A Kiss, presented by 100.5 The Peak and The Georgia Straight, with special guests Ra Ra Riot. The concert will take place on Saturday September 24th, 2011 at the Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park. Doors open at 5:30pm, and the concert begins at 7:00pm.

HST) $35.00 (Plus FMF & Service charges). And through TicketMaster of course. This concert is for general admission lawn and for all ages.

Some more information about the wonderful Broken Social Scene:

In the time that elapsed between the release of Broken Social Scene’s 2005′s self-titled opus and the 2010 release of Forgiveness Rock Record, fans were more than tided over by the 2007 release of founding member Kevin Drew’s solo album, Spirit If…, followed a few months later by co-founder Brendan Canning’s own solo set, Something for All of Us… both of which were released under the “Broken Social Scene Presents” banner, both of which were supported by tours that featured career spanning set lists, and both of which featured pretty much the same group of players you hear on Forgiveness Rock Record. In hindsight, Broken Social Scene’s period of supposed inactivity was arguably their most productive stretch yet – yet another contradiction that makes up the byzantine BSS myth.

Some 10 plus years after Drew and Canning first started laying down ambient instrumentals in a Toronto basement for their debut BSS release Feel Good Lost, the ever evolving group are returning to Vancouver to perform at Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park on Saturday, September 24th.

I love Malkin Bowl and I’m sure it will be an extraordinary concert. And to enter my giveaway all you need to do is post the name of your favorite Broken Social Scene song. If you want to gain an additional entry, you can tweet the following:
