Win tickets to see Winnipeg ‘anti-rock’ act Trampoline Friday at the King Eddy

You got the blues. Now you get the rock. Or the anti-rock.

After hosting Juno-winning bluesman Harrison Kennedy this past weekend, on Friday, May 24, Manitoba act Trampoline hit the King Eddy stage for what should be a superb night of indie excellence.

Formed five years ago in the ‘Peg, the trio featuring past members of such notable pop acts as The Perms, Don Amero and Royal Canoe — Michelle Lecnik, Steve Martens and Joey Penner, who was also part of one of this country’s most criminally unheralded acts The Waking Eyes — are touring their recently released full-length debut Happy Crimes.

Here’s how it’s described: “A rock musical enterprise that explores the imaginings and feelings of a man anticipating the apocalypse amidst the tensions of his nightmares, political preoccupations and personal traumas.”

Here’s how it sounds:

Wonderful, wonderful stuff.

And we and our friends at the Eddy would like you to experience it live

To win a pair of tickets to the show, please go to our Facebook page, find this post and comment under it tagging a friend you think would be interested in checking it out with you.
