Here it is! The February 2011 FridaeTV Youtube chart! I must say Girlicious held on strong and it’s sad that two of the remaining three have departed the group leaving Nichole Cordova as the sole femme in Girlicious, I wish her and the rest of the girls the best! There is a mixture of artists that popped into the chart this month like, City And Colour’s – THE GIRL, “Mary Rose Obsession” with their rock cover of Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around Come Around” and a few more mostly Canadian artists. MRO recently won Hard Rock Cafe’s 2011 Battle of the Bands and are now representing Canada in the worldwide online competition. The winner wins a spot on stage at Hard Rock’s London Calling, a three-day musical celebration taking place in Hyde Park. This year’s headliner is Bon Jovi, so all the bands are battling it out to open for them. Past headliners include Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, The Who, Aerosmith, and The Killers.
This month My Darkest Days is #1 both in Canada and The United States who are the biggest MDD fans across the globe by far! Because of the dual #1’s they made it to the top of the overall chart booting Girlicious from their throne! For the first time on the FridaeTV chart My Darkest Days is # 1 in Canada since they made the Canadian stats available. With the release of their new single “Move Your Body” this is just the beginning for this small town Canadian band, they are nominated for a slew of Canadian Awards, will be hitting the road again this month with Papa Roach and Buckcherry and if you miss a show don’t worry I’m sure you will be able to catch them playing some sort of festival somewhere in North America this summer!

Radio Station LIVE 88.5 from Ottawa put on an industry showcase at The Rivoli in Toronto for the current winners and previous winners of the major battle f the bands competition they hold annually. I was able to catch the second last tune of ‘The Draculas‘ set, I was disappointed that I missed most of the set and couldn’t even take any photos. But, I did manage to film a track (Click the 2nd up coming Draculas link to watch.) and had an interview with Singer Eric Eggleston of ‘The Draculas’ later joined by the rest of the band, check it out HERE.
<–Click the photo to buy EP.
Another band on the showcase bill was Amos The Transparent I enjoyed them but they could use a little work some of the back up vocals sounded messy.
This Showcase is in conjunction with a contest that NewCap Radio (Live 88.5) hosts every year, check out Lee Wagner talking about the Battle where they give away half a million dollars…That’s Crazy!! Watch Here.
