Join us this Friday as we give away two pairs of tickets to see Islands, playing at Sidewinder on Oct. 14! We’ll focus a big portion of the show on the band and other groups that frontman Nick Thorburn (a.k.a. Nick Diamonds) has been in over the years—including Human Highway, Mister Heavenly, Reefer, and—of course—The Unicorns.

Along with our spotlight on Islands, we’ll also bring you listener requests for Odds and Northey Valenzuela, plus a special Chixdiggit! song for listener Jeff. Rounding out our 90 minutes of independent Canadian music will be new music by Brasstronaut, Elephant Stone, Fresh Snow, Kestrels, and Rococode. Plus, favorites by Cold Specks, Navet Confit, The Neckers, and Sweet Alibi. And don’t forget about our Neil Young Song of the Week, every week at five o’clock.

Tune in to KOOP Radio on Friday at 4:30 PM and join Justin the Canuck for great tunes and your chance to win those Islands tickets! We’ll be broadcasting live on 91.7 FM in Austin and streaming online, worldwide, at
