Tearjerker – “Hiding” EP


Tearjerker is a three-piece indie rock band from Toronto, including (from left), Trevor (drums/samples), Micah (guitar/vocals), and Taylor (guitar/bass/keys). The guys record separately, in solitary circumstances and then bring everything together which helps create their unique layered sound.

The band is set to release their latest EP “Hiding” on May 20th, 2014. You can pre-order on iTunes here: smarturl.it/HidingEP

Canadian Music Week


Last week Toronto was blitzed by Canada Music Week (CMW) with acts from all over Canada as well as an array of international groups and artists taking the stage to showcase their craft. The week wasn’t long enough and it was impossible to intake all of the quality music being showcased throughout the city. Although groups and musicians such as City and Colour, Travi$ Scott and Tegan & Sara headlined many events, it’s the up and coming, soon to be stars that really make this week unique and memorable.


On Wednesday night we were introduced to Cam Smith, who opened for Travi$ Scott at the Opera house. Smith was the perfect act to kick off the night as his super high energy levels dictated the nights tone. Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming project from the multi-talented artist.


Some other highlights included performances from Toronto’s own Rich Kidd, Kayo and Alfie.




Remember, there is nothing like live music, so get out and enjoy all of the incredible entertainment opportunities this city has to offer!

City and Colour Live


This past Friday we attended the sold-out City and Colour show at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Aside from the incredible fact that Dallas Green managed to fill the ACC, the concert had a few other interesting facts.


For example, Dine Alone Records launched a free “City and Colour Live” app just in time for the concert. You might be thinking to yourself, so what, everyone has an app… Well, the good folks at Dine Alone decided to up the ante by being the first to use Bluetooth low energy iBeacon technology at a concert. Android and iPhone users were encouraged to turn on their bluetooth for the chance to win in-app giveaways through the show. Users walking past one of the 15 active iBeacons at the right time would trigger random devices and reward them with prizes including:

- ticket upgrades to floor seating within the first 10 rows
- suite access for you and a friend
- autographed City and Colour CD’s, LP’s and silk screened posters
- One grand prize winner received a Martin guitar autographed by Dallas Green

Needless to say, concert experiences will never be the same!





Big thanks to Clay and Tricia for taking care of us!

Toronto’s favourite trio, BADBADNOTGOOD just released their first entirely original album entitled “III”. The album was recorded analog-style with the help of Toronto producer Frank Dukes. If you’re looking for some mood-music, this might just be the album for you. BBNG fuses their love of jazz and hip hop along with synths, drums, and some interesting sounds of their own to make an album worth listening to. We encourage you to support Canadian (Toronto) music and pick up or download your copy today!

When Did Toronto Get So Cool?


Recently, BBC Travel released an article entitled, “When Did Toronto Get So Cool?”. We’ve always been “cool”, it’s just that nobody ever paid us any attention. With the spotlight continually shining on Toronto, from our musicians like Drake, The Weeknd, City & Colour, etc, or maybe our sports teams such as The Leafs or The Raptors (having the best fans in the world), or the simple fact that Toronto is truly one of the most diverse destinations on the planet… it’s all helped in raising the awareness of how “cool” Toronto really is.
