SNOWBOMBING’S SOPHO­MORE CANUCK CRU­SADE (it’s been bring­ing mu­sic to the moun­tains of Europe since the be­gin­ning of this mil­len­nium) has the tall order of best­ing its in­au­gu­ral edi­tion. It ap­pears to be up for the chal­lenge, though, with chart-top­ping “Bo­dak Yel­low” rap­per Cardi B and elec­tronic mae­stros ODESZA at the sum­mit, and sup­port from acts such as Troy­boi, Bor­gore, Goldlink, Kyle, Gor­gon City, Nora en Pure, Matoma, Justin Mar­tin, Black Tiger Sex Ma­chine and the Funk Hunters set to de­scend on Sun Peaks Re­sort in Bri­tish Columbia from April 5 to 9. Sure, that’s over 400 km from Van­cou­ver or 500 km (in­clud­ing some wa­ter) from Vic­to­ria, but we’ve got the trans­porta­tion (via in­ter-BC flight) for one lucky win­ner and a friend. They’ll also get four nights ac­com­mo­da­tion and a fes­ti­val pass each. Head on over to exclaim.ca to en­ter for your chance to win this thun­der­ous, non-tun­dra-ish get­away.

SEN­SI­TIVE STRUMMER Chris Carrabba has been re­leas­ing emo­tional ear­worms as Dash­board Con­fes­sional since Y2K, and in do­ing so has cov­ered the breadth of re­la­tion­ships: from a bro­ken heart to one burst­ing with joy. They have the per­fect theme song, no mat­ter where you’re at in life. Head to exclaim.ca to take a quick quiz to de­ter­mine if you’re more “Swiss Army Ro­mance,” “Vin­di­cated” or “We Fight.” The quar­tet’s new al­bum, Crooked Shad­ows, is out Fe­bru­ary 9 on Dine Alone Records. They’ll be tak­ing the record on tour across Canada from Fe­bru­ary 21 to March 13, with sup­port from the El­wins and Gabrielle Shonk, be­gin­ning in Van­cou­ver and end­ing in Oshawa, ON. Head over to exclaim.ca for the full list of dates.
