Stay tuned cause I’m giving away the new Broken Bells album next!
Have a listen to my favourite track on the album, “The Wall,” which I guarantee you sounds even better on vinyl:
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.

Remember a few months back when I tried out the new Nokia Lumia 520 and loved it? Well, thanks to Nokia Music, now you can too!
