    NXNE with AB

    Did you enjoy NXNE? I know I would’ve had a BLAST, if I wasn’t busy attending to my nine to five… but where there is a will, there is a way. For those of you that don’t know what NXNE is; simply put, it is the largest festival dedicated to “new and upcoming” music in North America.

    Even though I wasn’t able to fully dive into the NXNE activities; I was pleased to be able to spend a little time with some of the Audio Blood Media artists that were performing during the festival.

    Thanks to Danielle and everybody at Audio Blood media for always sharing the love with us over here at HeyDoYou.

    peace love and health


    ps: BIG shoutout to the men of SVC, Revelstoke as well Bret Caswell for being so awesome!

    Music eh! Birthday Boys

    They are known as Ontario’s best kept secret and they will be taking their “enraging and visceral” live performance on the road (alongside Detroit’s Electric Six) this March. The Birthday Boys are also releasing the Tin Head EP, which is said to be a feast for the ears. The EP features some of the band’s most lively recordings to date, with songs like “Daughters Man” which you just can’t help but sing along too.

    The band will also be filming a 10 webisode rockumentary for TruthExplosion.com during their Western Canadian tour; filming one webisode a day. The last time the Birthday Boys were on tour, they recorded 30 songs in 30 days! This year the rockumentary will be based on the band’s various adventures while they’re on the road, and just so you can see what the guys are up to; the webisodes will be available for your viewing pleasure on TruthExplosion.com

    Music eh! SVC

    Thanks to Sari from audioblood media for sharing this with us!
    For today’s Music eh! I bring you Burlington’s Sandman Viper Command.
    The band is set to play at Edgefest this July 9th, alongside artists like Rise Against, Tokyo Police Club, The Weakerthans and more. Before taking the Edgefest stage, the band will be going on an extensive national tour to celebrate the release of their new 7-inch, “Rough Love”.

    I like the songs “Oh Yeah, It’s Fusion” and “The Best of Plans”, you can listen to them and more on their myspace.

    “Rough Love” was recorded with acclaimed producer Jon Drew, and will be released on March 15th digitally and off-stage. The 7-inch will feature some of the band’s most mature work yet.
    For more info on the tour and tour dates, check out their myspace.
    peace, love and health

    Music eh! The Junction

    It’s time…for…Music…ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
    Melissa from audioblood media was kind enough to share some news with me about one of their bands, The Junction; and now I must share it with you. The band is set to embark on an eastern Canadian tour, and recently premiered their new video onAUX TV for their third single “Level With Me” which comes off their album Another Link in the Chain. The video was directed by Davin Black, and has already been added to Much Music and Much More Music.

    These guys… SERIOUS skills.

    I’ve listened to “Level With Me” and watched the video a number of times already, and I got that tingly feeling. I like the song so much that when it comes to an end, I think it happened too quickly… Anyway the video is so fun, and the song just makes you feel so good you can’t help but sing along. If you haven’t already watched it, you need to do so now. Trust me.
    I think The Junction were the perfect choice for the first Music eh! What do you guys think?
    Wishing the band all the best on their tour!
    peace, love and health

    Some tour dates for you!
