Contest: Win a pair of tickets to the Eyedea Tribute & screening of The World Has No Eyedea

Calgary, AB – On Oct. 14, our friends over at True Rhythm present a very special tribute in honour of Eyedea. The late American rapper, poet, freestyle battle champion and songwriter passed away on October 16, 2010 at 28 years of age.

Eyedea appeared as a solo artist using the name Oliver Hart, as well as in a duo as the rapper half of Eyedea & Abilities (alongside DJ Abilities). Eyedea was first signed under Slug’s Rhymesayers label before founding his own Crushkill Recordings. He died in his sleep on October 16, 2010 due to an accidental overdose.

The Eyedea Tribute event takes place at Dickens Pub in downtown Calgary, and will be hosted by Eyedea’s mother, Kathy Averill. The evening features a screening of The World Has No Eyedea, along with performances from DJ Abilities and Carnage, along with support from Evil Ebenezer and more.

And we’ve teamed up with True Rhythm to give away a pair of tickets to the event. Check out full contest entry details and peep the event flyer after the jump.
