The Treble: Saturday Night

By Kerry Doole

The Treble - "Saturday Night" (Cadence Music): Over the past decade, these Winnipeg modern-rockers have honed a radio-friendly sound that landed them a deal with Cadence Music for 2016 album Modernaires.

They return with this new track that again demonstrates a smart arrangement and a strong sense of melody.

Reflecting on the inspiration for the song in a label press release, lead singer Mark Brusegard says "A little while ago a bar we used to go to, back home in Winnipeg, got torn down to make way for new condos. It got me thinking of all the crazy times and experiences that people must have had there. Breakups, fights, new connections. It made me think of relationships I had when I was younger, that burned too bright and never could have lasted. That's what 'Saturday Night' is about."


Following on from "Eyes On Us," this is the second cut from the band's upcoming full-length due in 2019. 

The Treble open for The Trews in Winnipeg on their special New Years Eve show at Club Regent Event Centre.

Celine Dion Battled Extreme Muscle Spasms From Stiff-Person Syndrome With Dangerously High Doses of Valium: ‘It Could Have Been Fatal’

The singer opened up about her decade-long struggle with the rare neurological disorder in Tuesday night's (June 11) primetime NBC special.

Celine Dion was so desperate to alleviate the pain from severe muscle spasms during her secret, nearly two-decade-long battle with the rare neurological and autoimmune disease Stiff-Person Syndrome that she took near-lethal doses of Valium in search of relief. In her one-hour primetime NBC special on Tuesday night (June 11), Dion said she took up to 90 milligrams of the medication used to treat anxiety, seizures and muscle spasms, an amount that is more than twice the recommended daily dose.

“I did not know, honestly, that it could kill me. I would take, for example before a performance, 20 milligrams of Valium, and then just walking from my dressing room to backstage — it was gone,” Dion said of the instant pain relief the medication offered at levels, however that “could have been fatal” if she’d continued at that pace. “At one point, the thing is, that my body got used to it at 20 and 30 and 40 [milligrams] until it went up. And I needed that. It was relaxing my whole body. For two weeks, for a month, the show would go on… but then you get used to [and] it doesn’t work anymore.”
