Miesha and the Spanks

6:00 PM - Miesha and the Spanks

Calgary’s clamor rock couple Miesha and The Spanks are wild with a touchy underbelly. Steadfast. In any case, with a solid craving for something new for the street. What’s more, wherever they meander: uproarious, shake, and roll. Envision Karen O in Jack White’s place on right on time White Stripes. Then again, Joan Jett fronting The Hives with a loading measurement of force pop tunefulness. Framed by Miesha Louie in 2008, the first EP was discharged promptly to a few…

Elk Run + Riot

7:45 PM - Elk Run + Riot

Since forming in 2013, Elk Run & Riot have made it their priority to write songs that reflect who they are and where they live. For the alternative folk outfit, that environment is Alberta’s Bow Valley in the Rocky Mountains, whose natural wonders greatly inspired the group’s third full-length album, Animalia. On the eight new tracks, Elk Run & Riot continue to refine their songwriting with AOR-ready arrangements—ringing guitars, soaring harmonies and heartfelt melodies. Using a live-in-the-studio recording approach, the…

The Dead South

9:30 PM - The Dead South

The Dead South have been described as outlaws and modern hillbillies, but the best way to describe the Regina-based band is fearless. They’re a rare musical commodity – a band that’s equally compelling on record as they are on stage. While The Dead South’s signature blend of bluegrass and classic folk is familiar, it’s also eminently fresh; fuelled by the kind of energy and ethic you’d associate with a punk band. “A lot of our inspiration comes from an old…

Madeline Tasquin & Sarabande

5:00 PM - Madeline Tasquin & Sarabande

Instagram Facebook Hashtag #sarabandeband Imagine a freak teleportation accident in which the humour and harmony of The Boswell Sisters, the pop sensibilities of Dirty Projectors, and the folksy vocal blend of Red Molly are fused into a vocal trio combining all of that music-DNA. The result might sound something like Canadian songwriter Madeline Tasquin’s jazz-influenced folk-pop trio Sarabande, who have been wooing audiences since their first performances together in October 2016 in their San Francisco Bay Area home base. Comprised…

Mariel Buckley

5:45 PM - Mariel Buckley

Few performers combine the lyrical heartfelt authenticity of classic country music with a steely eyed intensity that compels an audience’s attention like Calgary, Alberta’s Mariel Buckley. Amidst a sea of neon-Nashville superstars, Buckley offers a crunchy, roots alternative. Poignantly raw lyricism and thoughtfully arranged melodies are carried by her timeless vocal delivery – to create a listening experience both unique and captivating. An emerging live performer, with opening slots for k.d. lang and Hayes Carll, and an impressive list of…

WiL

6:45 PM - WiL

William Mimnaugh (stage name WiL) is a contemporary roots artist who makes his home on Vancouver Island, Canada. Known for his firey live show, enigmatic stage presence and mad skill with an acoustic guitar, the 47 year old front man (he tours with a drummer and a keyboardist) is also known for penning ‘Roam’ flagship anthem to Travel Alberta’s stunning international media campaign called ‘Remember to Breathe’. Not one for school, his youth consisted of skateboarding and holing himself up…

Lion Bear Fox

8:00 PM - Lion Bear Fox

Vancouver’s Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices joined as one, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrative and unbridled passion. Three men going to war onstage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability and redemption. Lion Bear Fox is “a musical force of nature”, an “emotional awakening” that’s sure to “be around for a lifetime”. (Nanaimo Daily News/Songs in the Valley/Terry David Mulligan). Originally known for their respective solo careers, Christopher Arruda, Ryan McMahon and Cory…

Lindi Ortega

9:30 PM - Lindi Ortega

Lindi Ortega gives fair warning: “Don’t come any closer to my heart /If you’re afraid of the dark.” However, that shroud is slowly lifted in Liberty. As the narrative unfolds in this concept album, a central character emerges – one who finally sheds the darkness of her past and emerges into the light. As melodies and tempos change throughout Liberty, her journey carries her steadily forward. Listen closely and you’ll find Ortega’s experiences in the lyrics too. “I think the…
