Justin the Canuck will be back in the studio after a few weeks away with 90 minutes of Canadian breakup songs–love, loss, and rebuilding. Don’t worry, it’s not all sad! Especially because tucked into all those breakup tunes, we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to see punk-ish rockers The Dirty Nil play at Sidewinder on Oct. 6.

Our playlist this week will feature breakup tunes by artists including The Acorn, Adam Hanney, Balacade, Crystal Castles, Del Barber, Digits, Gramercy Riffs, and Handsome Furs. Plus, more music by Hayden, Immaculate Machine, Kathleen Edwards, The Michael Parks, Rah Rah, The Ruffled Feathers, Stars, Tangiers, The Weakerthans, and The Zolas. And don’t think our theme will rule out Neil—your weekly routine is intact, as we’ll be playing #54 on the list of the Top 100 Neil Young songs of all time, as judged by Rolling Stone.
