Wiggins Pro-Ductions is now accepting applications to play this year's Cover Show, happening June 9th and 10th
. The Cover Show is an annual event that features local bands playing full cover sets by their favorite underground and top 40 groups. THE "RULES”#1 - Each band is given a 30 min set to play songs by one (1) other band. Exceptions are made if members of the band being covered have solo or side projects – i.e. if you chose to cover Alexisonfire, you can do a City & Colour or Black Lungs songs
#2 - Bands performing are free to choose any band to cover with the exception of bands covered at last year’s show (Cover Show 7). For a list of last year’s lineup as well as all previous years, visit http://bandwiki.ca/wiki/The_Cover_Show
#3 - Bands will be chosen based on a number of factors, including the success and status of the band being covered – you don’t have to cover a radio star, but don’t pick a band so obscure that no one else will recognize their songs.
#4 - Performers are encouraged to get into character / costume for their sets (when applicable).
#5 - There will be up to 17 spots available this year.
