Some artists function under just one name, while others function with multiple groups.
Canadian indie pop group stars is the latter, with all of its members also being in super group Broken Social Scene on top of also having a plethora of solo albums and even TV appearances between them. But it does make sense for them to work under a different name -- the material Stars releases is not much like that of Broken Social Scene, boasting more of an electro pop feel in a mix that integrates the vibe and core of North American indie rock with hints of Euro-pop synths.
This year, Stars released The Five Ghosts, the band's fifth album since forming in 2001, and to promote it, they're coming to Granada on Saturday night with San Francisco's Geographer in tow. And, if that sounds interesting to you, well, you're in luck, because Granada has provided us with two free pairs of tickets to hand out to a couple lucky DC9 readers.

Want the tickets? OK: Just be the first to e-mail Pete with the words "Geography of Stars" in the subject line, and you're in. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
