Here's what we missed in Baie Comeau

Posted by MP / September 1, 2011

Baie ComeauWe weren't able to bring Marie Mai and Alfa Rococo to Montreal (we were too busy anyway) but at least residents of Baie Comeau had fun for the first time in the lives. Here are the photos from the show last month. We'll get you next year, Sirius and AUX TV.

We'll get you next time Baie-Comeau

Baie ComeauBaie-Comeau, that tiny little place north east of here known for little more than fostering a clan of Mulroneys has somehow claimed the highest score in the Face the Music Summer Concert Series. Assuming the town is actually big enough to hold a summer concert, they'll be welcoming Marie Mai and Alfa Rococo at some point later this summer.

Other cities that managed to place a top the leaderboard in their respective regions include the bustling metropolis' of Telkwa (BC), Sault Ste Marie and Sussex, New Brunswick. Did I mention the contest is still open in case you want to attend a show in one of these places?

Montreal slips to 6th place

Posted by MP / July 3, 2011

MontrealWith only three days left before winning cities will be picked for the Face the Music Summer Concert Series, things aren't looking too good for Montreal. Following a steady climb up the leaderboard to 3rd place as recently as last week, we've now fallen back to 6th. It's embarrassing that we're losing to Joliette of all places, a city whose Wikipedia page is shorter than most high school students' resumes.

Anyway, there are still a few days left for Montreal to stage an epic assault at the top of the leaderboard so that we can end up hosting the summer concert series featuring Marie Mai and Alfa Rococo.

Montreal climbs into 3rd place

Sirius Summer Concert SeriesRemember the Face the Music Summer Concert Series we wrote about last week? Seems we've made some progress. After starting off slowly in 21st place this week's leaderboard brings us to 3rd, less than 10,000 points behind first place Sherbrooke. Good thing there's still time to vote to bring Maria Mai and Alfa Rococo to Montreal for a summer concert.

Our partner AUX TV keeps updating the Concert Series web site too. Here are some key stats on Alfa Rococo as well as video and a bunch of fancy graphics. There's a similar page for Maria Mai too.

Bring Marie Mai and Alfa Rococo to Montreal

Posted by MP / June 16, 2011

Sirius ContestThis summer we're partnering with Sirius and AUX TV to try to bring an intimate concert to Montreal. It's all part of the Face The Music Summer Concert Series and while other regions across the country are battling out to see the likes of K-OS, Broken Social Scene and The Trews, we here in Montreal are up against small towns all across La Belle Provence to win the right to host Marie Mai and Alfa Rococo.

In order to make sure Montreal wins this thing, we're going to be reminding you for the next month or so to go and play the contest here. Currently we're in 21st place behind Shawnigan, Greenfield Park and a bunch of other places that we shouldn't be losing to. So, um, go play!
