Calling all guitarists and bassists: if you love playing minor chords and you dig the whole tortured, lovelorn, hedonistic ways of The Weeknd, then Abel Tesfaye may just have the gig for you. The R&B crooner has posted an open call for all aspiring musicians, specifically from the Toronto area, on his Facebook page. Auditions to be in his band will end this Sunday, January 8th, and they will be also accepting “any additional YouTube video footage, credentials, etc.” Read the memo below if you think this is something you’re interested in.

The Weeknd is looking for a professional guitarist and bass player in or around the Toronto area to travel and perform live in concert. Those interested please send all information to:

theweekndband@gmail.com

Include: name, age, instrument, and a photograph if possible. Any additional youtube video footage, credentials, etc. of performer is welcome.

Serious inquiries only please.

Deadline is Sunday January 8, 2012

Good luck! Hopefully the new guitarist/bassist is a P&P reader.
