CMW hits Bandwidth...

Apocalypstic Laurie Emily.JPGIt's Canadian Music Week -- and Bandwidth is celebrating by showcasing awesome Ontario bands who are playing the festival.

 

This week, hear from Cody Allen -- a singer-songwriter from North Bay with a distinct voice... as well as Ottawa's premiere all-girl pop-rock band, Apocalypstic (Laurie and Emily from the band are sitting pretty in the picture on the left).

 

Ottawa rapper Atherton shares his hangover cure in a 90 second egg (spoiler: you might not want to try it yourself). His new album isn't out until May... but you can find an awesome video for his Tim Horton's rap, 1 out of 6, here on Youtube.

 

 

****CONTEST ALERT!!!!****

 

Win tickets to the JUNOs Singer-Songwriter Circle here in Ottawa (sorry... tickets only... so you'll have to find your own way there!)

 

Dan Mangan will be hosting the event on Sunday, April 1st at the Centrepointe Theate at 1 p.m... and will be joined by Terri Clark, David Francey, Max Kerman from the Arkells and Lindi Ortega.

 

To win two tickets to this awesome, intimate concert -- email me at bandwidth@cbc.ca with your favourite 2012 JUNO nominee. Send it in my midnight on Sunday (yes, tomorrow -- Sunday the 25th) to be entered in the draw for the tickets.

 

It's that easy! And who knows.... maybe next weekend you'll be rubbing shoulders with the musicians! (I'll be there too, if ya want to come by and say hi).

 

And a musician I want to put on your radar... Kirt Scholte (who just goes by Kirty) is from Orillia and has a new album coming out this spring/summer. Until then, catch her Wednesday nights at the Cameron House in Toronto (on Queen St.) from 6 to 8 p.m.

 

If you can believe it... next week is the JUNOs! I don't know about you, but I'm getting pretty psyched (yes, I still use the word psyched)... and will be tweeting from all sorts of JUNO events, so be sure to follow me at @meghw.

 

Catch you next week,

 

 

Meg.
