This week on AIRWAVES I got a little ridiculous in the studio with some shout outs to A-Team. I discussed what makes good / bad band names as well as music on Grey’s Anatomy and Suits. This week there were no new notable show dates unfortunately, but keep you’re ears up next episode for potential news! Good luck on exams, Laurier! Oh, and bring on the snow.

Brrrrrrr. Good morning on this chilly day.


Seems like winter is making a comeback as we move into December with only a few shows left before the holidays. I have to say I am really excited for all the festivities, especially snowboarding and uptown walks in the snow (if you haven’t taken a stroll at night through there you should)!


Enough rambling though, this week I talked about the makings of a good encore (getting the fans excited, “crowd pleaser” songs, a personable sendoff, etc), the Metric + Stars show (which was incredible) and some songs on Hell on Wheels + Gossip Girl.


Of course I had show news up there too with not much new from last week.


Notable show dates:
USS AND DVBBS at the TURRET (LAURIER) November 27, 2012
