Contest: Win a pair of tickets to New Country Rehab Feb. 27 & 28


Toronto ‘outlaw country’ group New Country Rehab are making their way to Blacksheep Inn in Wakefield, QC, for a double header this weekend, and we’re giving away a pair of tickets each night.

The band was formed in 2009 and are signed on Ottawa’s own Kelp Records. Although their name might suggest that their country roots run deep, their music reflects a broad range of influences from folk to hard-hitting rock and roll. New Country Rehab blends intimate storytelling with infectious instrumentation and songwriting that appeals to more than just your average country music audience. Their latest release, 2013’s Ghosts of Your Charms, has received international acclaim, and was just named one of the top bands in Contemporary Canadiana by The Bluegrass Situation.

One can only imagine how perfectly this band will fit in at the legendary Blacksheep Inn. They are well-oiled and ready to show their best having just come off a US tour recently.

How to Enter

Email music [at] or tweet at us (@ottawashowbox) which kind of motel the band named one of their songs on Ghosts of Your Charms.

(Clue: it may be a little more extravagant than the average Joe can afford)

What you could win

One of two pairs of tickets to either Friday or Saturday night’s show, along with a copy of New Country Rehab’s debut album! We will announce the winner mid-afternoon day-of. May the force be with you.
