It's Record Store Day -- Hurrah, Hooray!
Bandwidth has a new theme! It's by the Arkells, a rock band out of Hamilton, and it's called Michigan Left. They're an awesome band -- if you aren't familiar, check them out.
Today marks the 5th annual Record Store Day -- a day for us all to celebrate our independent music stores with awesome RSD releases, in-store shows and giveaways!
To celebrate, Bandwidth is handing the show over to record stores across Ontario -- we're taking their requests for top tracks from their best local acts.
And... because Record Store Day is best enjoyed with... well, new records... we're giving away two VINYL copies of Eight and a Half's new album (Justin Peroff from Broken Social Scene and Dave Hamelin and Liam O'Neil from the Stills... what's not to love?)
To enter, email your favourite Canadian record of all time to firstname.lastname@example.org -- or you can Tweet, Facebook, or call your answer in (leave your dulcet tones on the voicemail at 613.288.6536). Send in your entry by midnight on Wednesday, April 25th, to be entered to win one of the two copies!
Have a great Record Store Day... and be sure to tune in next week as we celebrate the Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards!
See ya next week,
