Contest: Out Of The Box Music & Arts Festival

Win a pair of All-Access Festival Passes to the Out of The Box Festival

Thursday, August 22 – Sunday, August 25, 2013

The Out of The Box festival emerged a couple years ago with the idea of transforming regular ol' concerts into a more immersive experience. Applying a DIY spirit to art and music, the festival returns for a second round in some of the city's comfier smaller rooms. The "festival" feel comes from packing several shows together over a weekend, so you can skip around a bit if you want to explore the different concepts.

Themes at the shows include the budget-minded garage-rockin' Dollarstore Spaceship and the kaiju misadventures of Attack Of The 100 Ft Bands — not to mention aquariums, dragons and more.

Musically, there'll be a mix of old friends and new discoveries on stage, but highlights include a chance to see fast-rising grunge-punkers The Beverleys, prog-poppers The Skeletones Four and koto-folkers The Jessica Stewart Few. And more. Much, much more.

listen! The Beverleys - Dreams
listen! The Skeletones Four - Trap Door
listen! The Jessica Stuart Few - Kid Dream


You can find everything you need to know at the festival's Facebook page. Shows range from free to $10, with a couple PWYC and several at $8.


That's plenty affordable, but thanks to the festival, I have a pair of all-access festival passes to give away! Here's a chance to get a full weekend's worth of entertainment and maybe even hop around a bit to discover something new.

CONTEST CLOSED To enter, shoot me an email to, with "OOTB" in the title and your name in the body. I'll randomly draw a winner on Wednesday, August 21st.
