a while ago we announced how honoured we were to be nominated for the polaris prize, an award that recognizes Canadian music – regardless of the genre, label or album sales – and it’s judged by a panel of selected critics and experts from across the country.
well today we are announcing that we, along with all the other short list nominees, are performing at the gala event on September 20, 2010 at 8pm at CTVâ€™s Concert Hall studios at Torontoâ€™s Masonic Temple. besides us the nominees/performers include The Besnard Lakes, Broken Social Scene, Caribou, Karkwa, Dan Mangan, Owen Pallett, Radio Radio, The Sadies and Shad.
you can’t buy tickets to attend the event, but the gala will be exclusively broadcast live to North America on SIRIUS Satellite Radio channel 86 and to the world on CBC Radio 3. It will be webcast live on MuchMusic.com and broadcast on MuchMusic, Saturday, Sept. 25th at 9 p.m. and midnight ET.
at the end of the night they will announce the winner of the $20,000 Polaris Music Prize! we are pretty excited to be there and be a part of it with so many other amazing and talented Canadian musicians!
