Contest: Win tickets to The Acorn & guests Nov. 10


*Note – This contest is now closed.

Ottawa’s soulful, enduring wordsmith and frontman of The Acorn, Rolf Klausener, doesn’t play as many shows as he used to in town. But once in a while a gem pops up out of nowhere and takes us by surprise. This Thursday’s show at Babylon presented by Spectrasonic is no exception, and it features talented guests Taylor Knox and Trails.

Last year’s release of Vieux Loup illustrated that Klausener is as in touch with his music as ever, bringing together the new and the old to craft an album that was on our Top Ten releases of 2015. Those of us who have lived in Ottawa for a long time know how intimate and electric The Acorn are live, and newbies still have a chance to find out.

We’re giving away a bunch of tickets to this show (in pairs), and if you aren’t doing anything on Thursday night, Babylon is the place to be.
