THE XO-FACTOR: JOIN THE WEEKND 

Like some sort of subversive Simon Cowell production, the Weeknd is running a Toronto-wide talent contest to find his live tour band. If you love money, fame, street cred, international travel and would use your newly-discovered and possibly quite frightening sexual powers for good – and you play guitar, or bass – you have until midnight next Monday to send your details to theweekndband[at]gmail.com. But be warned, the worst failed entrants will be be filmed and virally humiliated via YouTube (we can dream).
