We recently spoke about Dead Tired, the new five-piece Hamilton, Ontario-based band that features former Alexisonfire lead George Pettit on vocals. The world knows very little about the group at this point, in fact they're playing their first ever show tonight (May 16th) in their hometown with Teenager and TV Freaks.
Want to get in on the ground floor, or at least close to it? The band's playing their next show on Sunday, June 1st in St. Catharines, Ontario at the Detour Music Hall courtesy of our good friends at IndoorShoes. They'll be sharing the stage with Wild Side and Street Legal. You can find all the details here or grab tickets online.
We've got a pair of passes for the show to pass on to you folks, so enter the form below and we'll draw a name in a week or so. You could make a weekend out of it! Come down to Niagara, hit up some craft breweries, defend Upper Canada, ride the Plunge O' Sphere, then rock out to Dead Tired.
