The New Pornographers offer "Together Soundcheck Sessions"

on June 17, 2010, 4:40pm

Good news for the poor, those who forgot to buy tickets, and the diehards: The New Pornographers are providing a few extra chances to hang out with them during their upcoming North American tour. And when I say hang out, I actually mean you can physically hang out with that band, in addition to watching them perform live.

Basically, the Canadian outfit, its label Matador Records, and a whole bunch of blogs, radio stations, and record stores have partnered together for the “Together Soundcheck Sessions,” which is a huge gigantic promotion that will see said band, label, blogs, and record stores giving a way VIP packages that feature such items as tickets to shows, access to sound checks, and opportunities to meet the band — yep, even Neko Case.

For more info on the whole promotion and how to win, visit Matablog. Below, find a listing of “Together Soundcheck Sessions” stops as well as the rest of The New Pornographers’ upcoming touring schedule.
