Friday Fun:: Vote For Things!

Searchlight 2011

We mentioned the CBC Radio 3 Searchlight Contest, which is looking for Canada’s best music website, a couple weeks ago, but yesterday they cut it down to the top 30, and we very pleased to see that we made the cut. Things are getting serious now, some pretty high-profile & high-quality sites have been eliminated, but at this point we’re like a guy on the street with a “Why Lie? I Need a Beer.” sign: we want your vote.

 

So then, if you enjoy the hill, please head over to Radio 3′s site and cast a click for us. You can even do so daily if you wish, so feel free! We appreciate the support, and we will certainly give you an enthusiastic high-five next time we see you. Even if you’re supporting someone else in the top 30, just keep on voting, I know this contest is doing good things for folks who work hard on these sites in the name of supporting Canadian music.

 

Whilst you’re in the voting mood, check out this Rolling Stone “choose the cover” contest, which features Saskatoon classic rockers The Sheepdogs as the only Canadian entry. I know there must only be like tens of people that put any stock in what Rolling Stone has to say about music anymore, but if you enjoyed all the overdone outrage caused by AF winning that Grammy, this is a fun way to keep that alive! Plus it would mean exposure for a hard working band that have already played everywhere in this country.

 

Some fun music for your Friday then! How about a couple of collabo’s that have gotten plenty of press these last couple weeks: PS I Love You’s Leftovers, which also features their pal John O’Regan (aka Diamond Rings), and Wannabe, a rap & scream number from D-Sisive and Pink Eyes (Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham) , which was produced by Muneshine. We’ll finish with some good ole fashioned rock from The Sheepdogs. Enjoy.
