Contest: Win a pair of tickets to Pony Girl’s album release party at St. Alban’s Nov.7


It’s been over two years since the release of their debut LP Show Me Your Fears, and Ottawa art-rock ensemble Pony Girl (So Sorry Recs) are more than ready to unleash their brand new album Foreign Life on Saturday, Nov. 7 at St. Alban’s Church.

There’s a reason why Pony Girl is one of our favourite local bands. Several reasons, actually. But all you really need to know is that they are a collective of brilliant minds and diverse talents, bringing us beautiful and alluring soundscapes for us to melt into. On stage, the band mesmerizes rooms and takes captive the mind.

Lo and behold, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to their album release party at St. Alban’s church, along with the beautiful music of Her Harbour and presented by Arboretum Festival. If there is one venue that could do this band’s intricate stylings and quietly unrelenting sound justice, St. Alban’s would be it. Be sure to check out a limited and exclusive full-album stream of Foreign Life on CBC Music’s website this week only.
