Fast Romantics interview + ticket/merch giveaway
are a band that do one thing really well — making great music. That skill set of theirs has been turning heads since the band’s genesis in 2008. They’ve worked with legendary Canadian producer and engineer Howard Redekopp
(The New Pornographers, Tegan and Sara, Metric, Mother Mother… the list goes on) on two out of their three albums. They’ve been accepted by our southern neighbours, and even had the chance to play at a temporarily reconstructed CBGB in New York City before the bastards shut it down for good. As their raw sound and substantive lyrical content of their new album Afterlife Blues
demonstrate, Fast Romantics are in the business of creating music that people connect with. After having just wrapped up a six-week North American tour, the band plays at Black Sheep Inn on Thursday, Dec. 19, along with Sam Cash & the Romantic Dogs
. So with all this romance going down, it’d be a shame for anyone to miss out. Check out our interview with drummer Alan Reain below.

song is and we’ll enter you into our contest to win:
