An alt-rock band out of Ontario, Canada, James Blonde [pictured] has found a home away from home at Stella’s Music Club. The band performed at the downtown club earlier this month, and it will return to the club tomorrow night.

As an incentive to try to get people out to the gig, club owner Michael Zweig will give a $10 bill as a “reverse cover” to the first 100 attendees arriving between 10:30 and 11 p.m.

“Our goal is sharing with Cleveland a truly special band that we know well, but folks here may not,” says Zweig in a press release about the event. “We want people in town to hear them. What better way than to give away money!”

Following their performance, band members will meet with locally based multi-platinum producer Jim Wirt (Live, Incubus, Fiona Apple, Hoobastank) to discuss a potential record deal with Stella’s Records for their next album.
