Win a pair of tickets to see Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer perform an intimate live acoustic set at The Georgia Straight

      To celebrate 50 years of uninterrupted coverage of the local music scene, the Georgia Straight is inviting musicians that have scored the cover of the Straight to perform a live acoustic set in an intimate setting. #StraightUnplugged, a yearlong series, will showcase some of Vancouver’s biggest musical acts. This contest is the only way to score tickets for these performances.

      This month you have the chance to see the Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer!

      Since coming together in 2007, Hall and Rogers have positioned themselves among the city’s finest purveyors of grittily authentic blues—the kind of stuff you want blaring in a grimly retro strip club. The Vancouver-spawned duo has specialized in a raw, bourbon-scorched take on the genre. Think R.L. Burnside, Lightnin’ Hopkins, and Jack White back when Meg White was still behind the drum kit.
