Most of the bands involved with the Weezer tribute, Feb. 12, were back at the Slice, Feb. 13 to show their shy and sensitive sides during CKXU Loves You 4.Thew Darby And Joan Club playing love songs at CKXU Loves You 4. Photo by Richard Amery
 The event brought  together Jesse and the Dandelions, Lustre Creame and the Darby and Joan Club, who reinterpreted their favourite love songs.
Jesse and the Dandelions went all the way back to the ’50s to play an earnest version of “Earth Angel.”
On the other hand progressive rock trio Lustre Creame  took things a step weirder by tackling songs by Chicago, a decent version of “That Thing You Do” from the movie of the same name and something by Tenacious D.
 The Darby and Joan club had a solid set of retro ’80s sounding emo music including covers of songs by Sloan and the Church which were well played.
The event, while not drawing a huge crowd, did raise $400 for local university and community radio station CKXU, 88.3 FM.
