[UPDATE: Contest is over! Congratulations to Aaron Blasutti and Dana Noseworthy]

Alright folks! We’re totally last-minute with a contest here, but if you’re free Wednesday night this week then you’re in luck because we JUST scored a couple pairs of tickets for recent Genie-nominee JAY BRANNAN’s “pre-awards-show” concert at Lee’s Palace.

Known for his folk-tinged singer/songwriter persona, Brannan is getting set to drop his latest LP Rob Me Blind on March 27th; though this Wednesday he’ll be celebrating his recently acclaimed track “My Love, My Love” which was written for Canadian film Cloudburst starring Olympia Dukakis. Joining him on stage for the night is musician/filmmaker/personality SOOK-YIN LEE – CBC host, and former Much Music VJ / host of The Wedge – who will be showcasing some of her own indie-folk prowess.
