First up we join some new and old friends on May 18 at Distortion, if you’re not heading out of town (and at the time of this writing, it seems like camping might be a bit of a stretch unless you’re planning on sleeping in an igloo) we hope you’ll join us to kick off the long weekend.
Next up, Calgary’s got a brand new music fest to celebrate International Ave. Come check out us and over 60 bands on Saturday, May 26 at the East Town Get Down, tickets available now.
We’ll be taking some time off in July and August so we’re trying to cram a bunch of shows into June, stay tuned Medicine Hat fans, after 12 years we might finally be coming your way. We’ll also be hitting up Dickens on Friday, June 29 with the Resignators from Australia and then we’ll be heading over to Revelstoke the next day, June 30th, to play once again in their amazing summer street festival.
A few exciting shows to help us close out the year. First off, we’re stopping by Broken City for Rockin’ 4 Dollars where we’ll play a few songs including our own take on an Offspring tune.Next up, we stay on the Wednesday train to make our second trip to Late Night at The Plaza on December 13. It’s a great night of entertainment even without your favourite local ska band. This edition is going to have a Christmas/Tarantino theme to it, more details here: https://www.latenightyyc.com/
Finally, we head back to our old stomping grounds at Vern’s to see Clint and celebrate our favourite bass player’s birthday on December 30th. We’ll try and get on stage before Alex gets too many drinks into him.

September 18, 2015 – Dickens – Class Action, Special Edisons, Nevertime High, Sean Hamilton and the Danger Dogs
We’re excited to playing with some of our best friends and favourite bands, and the Special Edison are going to be releasing the new album as well. This is the show to come to, we can’t wait for it.

Show starts at 10:00, at you guessed it, The Plaza theatre in Kensington. We’re excited to play it so we hope you are excited to come check it out.
Finally, we’re going to be playing an outdoor show at the ContainR site in Sunnyside on Thursday, September 24. We are on at 6:30 so bring the kids, cover is by donation. This will likely be your last chance of the summer to do some outdoor skanking.
Come join us on April 9 for a FREE show at the Ship & Anchor with Montreal ska and reggae act The Skinny, http://www.skinnyreggae.com/. It’s never a bad time at the Ship especially when there is some ska to groove to.
We are incredibly stoked to be opening for Canadian ska legends, The Planet Smashers, April 11 at Dickens! This bill is packed with awesome ska including our good friends Rude City Riot and Hats and Black Ties! Advance tickets are on sale for $18, http://ticketf.ly/LOeGPK
It’s been a long time since The Planet Smashers have come to town and hopefully they’ll come again soon but even if they were here every year you would be an utter fool to miss this one.
We’re spending January working on some new tunes, so make sure to come check us out at Dickens on February 22. We’re excited to be joined by Dope Soda, who are making their way east from Victoria. I’ve managed to catch them a couple times at Victoria’s ska festival and they have really unique and cool sound that I highly recommend you check out. Also joing us are our dear friends and local ska artisans Hats & Black Ties and Delerium, so if you’re a fan of the ska genre, then this is most definitely a show you do not want to miss.
We’re stoked to be playing the Ship & Anchor with two amazing ska bands, The Resignators and Suburban Legends. Trust me you won’t want to miss this. Plus NO COVER! Show starts at 9.
I wish we had an ampersand in our name. Maybe we should be Class Action & the Class Actions?
