Local station 107.5 DaveRocks is currently doing a promotion called the Morning Buzz Nooner. Every Friday at noon for eight weeks this fall, the crew from the DaveRocks morning show are broadcasting live from a local eatery. When they announced the schedule, I had to make sure I didn’t miss the Friday at Beertown!
Mrs. LeBrain and I headed out and met two friends, Debbie and Eleanor, at Beertown for a couple hours of good times and prizes. We love the food there. I enjoyed the beer and cheddar soup, and their unbelievable mac and cheese. Mrs. LeBrain had the soup as well, and the steak and blue cheese salad, which received rave reviews. Everyone received a music download card worth either two or five songs. I only won two. Drat! So I downloaded some Glorious Sons and a great track from a newer Toronto band called July Talk. Check out their infectious and dance-y single “Push + Pull”.
We didn’t win the grand prize, a $250 gift card, but not for lack of trying. We did get to chat a little bit with Darryl (who was clearly having a great time), Gayle and Brad. Cool fact: Brad was wearing the same Star Wars shirt he’s wearing in the promo photo. Coincidence? I think he might only own one shirt. It’s possible. Speaking of shirts, Eleanor made her own custom DaveRocks shirt which they loved.
Great times today at the Dave Nooner. I think I’ll have to attend the upcoming one at Borealis. Thanks for the good time, and the new tunes, DaveRocks!
Listen to July Talk’s “Push + Pull”. I think we’ll hear big things from them in the future.
