Contest – Annuals

The first ever contest/giveaway on It’s Too Sunny Out Here involves the Annuals, a band that has gotten much love from the blogosphere, but sadly not this site…yet. It just turns out that every time they’ve played San Diego (at least twice in the past year), I’ve had parents in town or some sort of other plans. But I do quite enjoy the lush sounds of their debut LP Be He Me.

They’re playing the Epicentre this Friday with Manchester Orchestra opening, and this time around I won’t be missing them. And neither will one lucky winner, who will receive two tickets to the show, courtesy of Sneak Attack Media. Another lucky winner will receive a copy of the Annuals/Manchester Orchestra split 7″, which is only available on tour at the moment.

This is how the contest works – email me (natkardos AT gmail DOT com) with “Annuals Contest” as the subject line and your name will be entered in the contest. If you’re unable to make the show, but are still interested in the split 7″, say so. The contest will close at midnight tomorrow (Wednesday), and you will be notified via email on Thursday if you’ve won.

While you’re waiting to hear if you’re the lucky winner, take a listen to these tracks.
