A couple Calgary shows coming up with some great ska bands ska bands from across the country. July 2 at Dickens, we’ll be playing with The Skinny from Montreal as well as reggae act Tasman Jude from Grande Prairie.
August 1, our friends the Bone Daddies from BC will be joining us at Vern’s for a night of ska.
We’ll also be heading out west ourselves at the end of July to spread a little ska and see how many hours we can spend together in a handi-bus before we start to hate each other and break up the band. Catch us in Kamloops on July 21, at the Music in the Park, on July 22 in Kelowna at Fernando’s pub, or on July 25 in Vancouver at the Railway club. More shows and more details will hopefully be announced in the near future.
Also the Calgary Beer Core just released a compilation album which features 32 amazing Calgary bands, including yours truly. Pick one up from us the next time you see us or at any Calgary Beer Core show. The CBC (that’s Calgary Beer Core not the broadcasting corp.) did a spot promoting the comp on the Calgary Herald’s Bandwagonish podcast, which features us.
