Lucero covers David Bowie

When I say I love this band, I honestly, truly do. Their new record makes me happy, with its bright, honky tonkin’ new sound. Here, they take on Bowie’s “Modern Love”. Thanks to Robot for the link!

Think yr so smart?

  1. The White Stripes song “The Union Forever” takes almost all its lyrics verbatim from what famous film?
  2. What was the name of Garth Brooks’ failed alter ego?
  3. Identify the group and song from these lyrics “Without a gun & a badge what do ya got? A sucker in a uniform waitin’ to get shot”.
  4. Which Canadian musician has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not once but twice?
  5. What classical composer was blind?
  6. In 1997, what artist became the first to offer future royalties as shares on the stock market?

If you can answer any of these questions, or if giving them a try seems like fun, c’mon out tonight for CJLO Music Pub Quiz. AndreWIXQ from Grade A Explosives & I are hosting once again, and we’ve got a fresh new batch of musical brain teasers for you. Drinks are cheap, there’s beer to be won, and you might even get to hear a song or two you’ll like.

No hockey game means it starts at 8:30pm, so get down to Le Bull (2170 St Catherine) and join the fun! Oh, and in case you’d like the answers:

  1. Citizen Kane
  2. Chris Gaines
  3. NWA - Fuck Tha Police
  4. Neil Young. He was inducted first as a solo artist, then as a band member.
  5. Bach
  6. David Bowie
