My favourite cover band of them all is playing their largest venue yet – The Phoenix – on Saturday, and I can’t wait to finally see them again!
This time they’re taking on classics from the beloved movie Wayne’s World, and calling the night, of course, Dwayne’s Dworld.
The band’s shows have become somewhat legendary at this point, and their Fleetwood Mac Rumours night may go down as one of my favourite shows of the year. Yes – I realize saying a cover band’s show was among my faves isn’t exactly hip for a blogger, but that’s how great I still think they are. Sometimes you want to see a show that will guarantee a night of amazing tunes you know and love played by talented musicians, so you can dance your ass off with your friends – and that is what they always provide.
In the spirit of giving, Young Lions has offered up a pair of tickets to giveaway to you guys so you can get in on what will likely be their last show of the year.
To win, just comment below with the name of your favourite DG covered song, using an email address (only where it asks for your email – not in the body) I can contact you at if you win.
Facebook fans get an extra entry by liking the status about this giveaway, as always!
You can also snag tickets now for $15 via Ticketfly, Soundscapes and Rotate This, should you prefer not to wait and risk missing out.

As we all know, this has been an amazing year for music festivals in Toronto, and they all seem to be happening at Fort York?! I don’t care where it happens, I’m just happy it’s finally happening.
Well, the fun certainly isn’t over yet. Another amazing festival is coming to Fort York, and it promises to end summer off with a bang. Riot Fest and it’s Travelling Exposition are returning to Toronto, and I couldn’t be more pumped.
Do you see that Sunday lineup?! I was stoked enough when it was Dino Jr, Weakerthans, Best Coast and IGGY! But then the Replacements reunited!! First gig in 22 years. That’s right. Can’t. Hardly. Wait.
And, it hasn’t officially been announced yet, but seeing as how JOHN STAMOS RETWEETED MY TWEEET about it and they did this recently on Jimmy Fallon – I think it’s safe to say Jesse and the Rippers are going to be added to this bill. They better be. My heart can’t take the toying.
With that said, I know you want to go, and courtesy of Riot Fest I can make that happen for free! Yes, they have given me a pair of passes to giveaway to one of you awesome readers.
All you have to do to enter is subscribe to the weekly newsletter using the form below – every Friday you will receive a roundup of my posts from the week. If you have already subscribed to my daily email alerts, consider yourself subscribed as I am transferring everyone over to weekly (since I think we all appreciate less email).
*In order to actually be entered you must go to your email and hit the confirm subscription link you will then receive – if you do not do this, you are not actually subscribed and I will not have your email address and therefore will not be able to contact you if you win – so that’s the most important part.*
Get ready for some of this:
and hopefully, a little bit of this:
