Not to play Captain Countdown too much, but we're now officially one month away from the Polaris Gala â€” and by extension, one month from figuring out who the winner of the 2012 Polaris Music Prize will be.
In the next few weeks business is really going to pick up around here. This week we <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/458/the-rdio-2012-polaris-record-club-is-here/'>kicked off</a> the Polaris Record Club listening sessions sponsored by Rdio, which we'll keep blasting out over the next four weeks, just like little musical Polaris presents.
Also, we've already announced our special <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/453/polaris-music-prize-peep-show-details-announced-proceeds-to-benefit-musicounts/'>Polaris Peep Show</a> party happening at the Drake Hotel, with its magic dangle of a chance to win yourself a trip to the Gala.
If that's not all, next week we're going to unveil a complete list of all the ways you can potentially get yourself into the Polaris Gala on Sept. 24. Think of it as a cheatsheet for getting into one of the most exclusive music parties in the country.
Still, all this stuff is secondary to the reason why we do this whole thing to begin with â€” the Polaris People.
