It's a chance for a band to win 20 grand worth of gear and have the opportunity to perform at CBC Music's inaugural festival on May 25 in Toronto!
A Saskatoon-based band called Close Talker, which I had increasingly heard whisperings of since the beginning of the year, is doing quite well in this competition, and are currently in the top 16! Wouldn't it be great if this well-minted four-piece progressed through, and TOOK this competition by storm?
Plus I totally love their name.
You can take a listen to their sweet tunage here, and vote for them in the Searchlight competition here, until Sunday March 24.
Support local music, Saskatonians, any way you can!
