GRAND THEFT BUS AND SHARE MEET UP ON TOUR TONIGHT!

While Share are already en route via train across Canada, Grand Theft Bus are leaving to meet up with them in Ottawa, where the the two East Coast bands will play the first of eight shows together. Both bands are beginning a tour that will start in Ottawa and end in Vancouver. Afterward, in an exciting twist homeward bound, members of Share and Grand Theft Bus will make their way back home on the train with delectable and savory performances in the dining cart! Mmm Mmm…now that’s good stuff.

TWO GREAT BANDS TO HIT YOUR CITY VERY SOON

Sleepless Nights have also started their Cross-Canada trek with Regina’s favorite ultra-catchy songsters, Rah Rah, and the two couldn’t be happier with each other. Sleepless Nights have informed us that they can’t get enough of Rah Rah. They are a band that definitely should not be missed!! (And of course, neither are the Sleepless Nights!!) 😉

See the TOURING page for dates!
*** For more information on Rah Rah, you can check them out at www.myspace.com/rahrahband ***

FORWARD IS ON TWITTER AND YOUTUBE!!

A few months back Forward released a brand new channel on YouTube filled with tons of Forward artist videos. Now on the site you can find Share’s latest tour blog, which was filmed on their second voyage to the United Kingdom! Click here to see what happens to the band when their van gets towed, gets almost zero sleep, and travels by train to ‘gig’ around (which apparently they loved so much they just had to try it out in Canada!) http://www.youtube.com/forwardmusictube
Keep up to date with all the forward bands as they travel the country this summer, plus check out reviews, blogs and more about the bands and label on the Forward Twitter Page. http://twitter.com/ForwardMusic
