      If you weren't one of our lucky contest winners last week, chances are you missed out on the first of many acoustic concerts that will celebrate local musicians who have graced the cover of the Georgia Straight. 

      The shows are also a nod to the Straight's 50th anniversary.

      Yukon Blonde-one of our long-time favourite bands at the Straight-took the stage (read: office) last Friday afternoon (January 27), and played a few songs for lucky attendees who sipped Steamwhistles and indulged in snacks from Urban Fare.

      Check out these acoustic versions of two the band's own songs, Confused and Stairway, and an exclusive cover of the Beach Boys' hit, California Girls, in the videos below.
