Photos from “One Night Stand VI” Up


Photo by Christine McAvoy

Over 5 years ago a group of Vancouver musicians led by my good friend Josh McNorton came up with an idea to throw a New Years Eve Party where musicians and friends within the Vancouver Indie Music Scene would come together to play a random assortment of hit cover songs for one night only. The collective named the event “One Night Stand” intending for it to be a one time only deal.

Everybody involved enjoyed the event so much, however, that “One Night Stand” became a New Year’s Tradition. With each year the event became more successful, attracting bigger Vancouver names and with them, larger and larger audiences. This year we were fortunate to expand into the grandiose Rickshaw Theatre for a good ol’ bash.

Photos from the event have now been posted to facebook. If you were there and checked out the Photobooth, find and tag your photos in one of these albums.

There is also a photo album dedicated to the band. For those of you that missed it. Adaline and I did an “inspired” version of “Pony” by Ginuwine.

To get a taste you can click through the play by play about half way through the album.

Happy New Year Everyone!



Album Sneak Peak…On the last day of Freakmas

Well, we have come to the 12th and final day of Freakmas. It’s been pretty fun to do something new every day with you all. I think it’s safe to say that come next Christmas I will be repeating the 12 days of Freakmas.

But yes, I am stalling. What is there to win on the 12th day of Freakmas this year? I probably shouldn’t do this but I can’t stop myself. As you may know I recently recorded a full length album with mr. Warne Livesey (the midnight oil, matthew good, no sinner). I am still preparing for the release of this record in hopefully spring of 2014, but one very lucky contestant will get  an advance copy of said record.

How to win an advance copy of my new album

Screen shot 2013-12-24 at 12.24.42 AMI’m gonna leave this one pretty open ended. The requirements are just that you have to tweet my twitter handle (@dominiquefricot) and mention anything at all about my new record. Maybe a suggestion for the album title? Or your favourite song off of the new record (yes i know you may not have heard anything off of it yet, but suspend disbelief shall we?), or whatever you can imagine. I will give points for creativity and positivity. As food for thought you may notice I’ve included my track listing. in this photo. Not the picture of me with my boss, no the one with the random titles to the left here.

Thank you all once again for taking part in the #12daysoffreakmas

It’s been a slice

2 Tickets To One Night Stand 2013

Screen shot 2013-12-23 at 12.05.35 AM

Every New Years Eve in Vancouver a great group of local musicians come together to put on a really special night of awesome music. This year as you can see above we have members from Mother Mother, Said the Whale, The Belle Game, Yukon Blonde, Adaline, Brasstronaut, myself and so much more.

For the 11th Day of Freakmas I’ve scored two tickets to give away to the NYE party that will be going down at the Rikshaw theatre.

How to Win 

If you’d like to enter yourself in the contest to win 2 tickets to this year’s One Night Stand, all I’m asking is for you to tweet the link with where to buy tickets: and include the event’s official hashtag #ONS2013. On the night of December 23 I’ll announce from my Facebook and Twitter who won the 2 tickets. Make sure with the link and the hashtag (#ONS2013) that you throw in a little something to pump up the event because it’s going to be one heck of a good time.

Good luck,



On the 10th Day of Freakmas

rest-day-reminder-9b6451On the 10th Day of Freakmas, Dom rested and so do you. It is Sunday after all. That doesn’t mean there won’t be something special for someone, quite the contrary. There are several people who have been taking part in Freakmas who deserve to be rewarded and your present is on it’s way.

Congratulations to the 9th Day of Freakmas winner Erin Pellow, we shall set up a skype date and it will be stupendous.


Skype Me! On the 9th Day of Freakmas

Up for grabs on this 9th Day of Christmas is a Free Skype session. We can discuss whatever you want to (within reason) and I may even give you some sneak peaks of my new record…

How to Winpatrick-swayze

A little while ago I wrote a song about one of our favourite eras, the 80’s. In it I make reference to several 80’s stars including Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Molly Ringwald, Cyndi Lauper, and Richard Dean Anderson’s hit TV series Magyver. Now I tweeted a video of the song at Jennifer Grey, who the song is principally about but got no response. I’d love for all of these people to hear the song. First step though is to get Jennifer Grey to hear the song.

On the 9th day of Freakmas my challenge is for you to tweet a video of my song “I miss the 80’s” at Jennifer Grey ( @JenniferGrey). Here is the link for the video: . I think if we get a few people to inform her about this song, maybe, just maybe she’ll listen to it and like it? Who knows. But that is your challenge. As always don’t forget the hashtag so I can enter you into the contest for the Skype date.


Good luck <3

Also If you didn’t see the results of the 8th Day of Freakmas here is my Iron and Wine cover that I dedicated to 8th day of Freakmas winner Erin Mcnally.


A Song For You on the 8th Day of Christmas

Bbzjob7IYAAfizHOn the 8th day of christmas I want to sing to you,

A song that’s already been wrote… by somebody else

How to Win?

Well everybody wins, don’t they? But I guess the winner here will get a dedication to them before the song. Today I challenge you to guess the song that I”m learning and filming a cover of. The person who has the closest guess on twitter (hashtag #12daysoffreakmas) or facebook/instagram comment under the post about this will get a personal shout out in the video fro the song.

Best of luck! and send in your guesses. Who knows maybe I’ll change the song from one of your guesses…. maybe.
