Past song of the week / October 2011

The Treble

From the album Shaking Hands and Taking Names

Featured track, available from October 6 to October 13

Fresh from the release of its debut album and a performance at Manitoba Music Night at New Music Wednesdays, The Treble is hitting Manitoba stages for 24 shows in 24 hours. Slated for October 14, the ambition event is a collaboration between the acoustic pop/rock trio and the Canadian Red Cross to raise funds and awareness for the famine in east Africa. The band will film the event to release on iTunes with all proceeds to the Red Cross, hoping also to feature and showcase local businesses, people, and artists in the film and garner small donations. People and businesses looking for more info, make donations, or to get involved can reach the band at or check it out on Facebook. Meanwhile, you can get a preview by downloading this week's featured tune, The Treble's "M.I.A." and look out for them on October 14.
