UPDATE: This contest is now closed, the winner has been notified by email.

After touring as Jason Collett’s backing band for several years, the four members of Dark Horse have re-emerged as Zeus, ready to step out of the shadows with their debut album Say Us, released in February. As much as Collett has been compared to Bob Dylan in terms of the vocal similarity and songwriting, Zeus may appeal to fans of his support, The Hawks, who later found fame in their own right as The Band. The three chord stompers are there, as is the rootsy-feeling.

Whether you’re a fan of the band or just looking to discover one of Toronto’s finest indie rock upstarts, you can’t miss their show this Thursday, May 27 at the Mod Club. Support includes Matt Murphy and Danielle Duval. Courtesy of Collective Concerts, we’ve got two tickets to give away. To win them, send an email to contests@cavacool.com with “Sound Like Zeus” in the subject line and your full name somewhere in the body. This contest closes Wednesday, May 26 at 10pm.

Zeus – Marching Through Your Head
Zeus – Kindergarten

If you miss this show, be sure to catch them at the Toronto Island Festival where they’ll be playing as part of the Toronto Revue. Not to mention that Beach House, Broken Social Scene and Pavement will also be there, so if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, your mother was right and you are completely irresponsible.
