Final Fantasy Wins Polaris Music Prize

Originality plus mega talent equals Owen Pallett (aka Final Fantasy). At the Phoenix Concert Theatre earlier tonight, Owen walked away with the Polaris Music Prize and a cheque for a cool $20,000. Here he gets a congratulatory hug by award show host Jian Ghomeshi.

In other news, it was announced that Rogers would pick up Wolf Parade's bar tab at the event.
