New music and even more tickets!

Hot on the heels of last week’s ticket bonanza—in which we gave away seven pairs of tickets to local Canadian shows—we continue the excitement with another four pairs of tickets to give away on Friday!

Dan Mangan + Blacksmith

Tune in to This Great White North this week for your chance to win one of four passes to see Dan Mangan + Blacksmith, Cold Specks, and The Flatliners. There are no tickets available for The Flatliners, so unless you’ve got a Fun Fun Fun Fest wristband, this may be your only chance to see these Canadian punk rockers!

We’ll also be spinning a great set of both brand new and slightly older Canadian music. Our new releases will include tunes by Jaime Payne, Bass Lions, July Talk, Megan Lane, Meligrove Band, Dan Mangan + Blacksmith, and Cold Specks, and our slightly more vintage tracks will include Parlovr, Caracol, Rah Rah, All of Your Friends, Lady Hayes, Mode Moderne, and The Mountains & The Trees. Plus, we’ll have a special Mac DeMarco track by listener request.

Join Justin the Canuck on Friday at 4:30 PM for This Great White North: bringing independent Canadian music to Austin, TX every week on 91.7 FM and streaming to the world at

Tickets to infinity… and beyond!

… as well as tickets to see The Rural Alberta Advantage & July Talk, along with exclusive guest list passes to Fun Fun Fun Fest Nites shows featuring MSTRKRFT, Majical Cloudz, and The Flatliners!

July Talk
Tune in this Friday for your chance to win tickets to these killer Canadian acts during a special, one-of-a-kind listener giveaway, only on This Great White North!

We’ll be giving away tickets throughout the show, so be sure to tune in from beginning to end. Along the way, you’ll hear Simone’s picks—all Canadian, all the time—broadcasting from Austin, TX on 91.7 FM and available worldwide at
