Saskatoon at Midnight
Oddly enough, I'm writing this at midnight, in Saskatoon. It's the name of one of the songs I chose to share for my show on January 14. It was my first show back since 2012, and it was wonderful to rock out to some tunes.
You'll notice my list is almost entirely Canadian. Though I listen to an array of artists from genre to genre, I really enjoy the Canadian scene. There's so much talent here.
Wherever I've gone, I've always been a fan of local music and supporting the local scene.
Though I sometimes (okay most times) feel like a relative n00b to Saskatoon, I've fallen in love with its varied yet incredibly cohesive music scene. Whether it's instrumental psychedelic punk amazingness (Shooting Guns who I finally saw perform this weekend at LUGO), or folk-infused brotherly love like the Karpinka Brothers, there's some hella talented, supportive and dedicated musicians 'round hurr.
I also find it fascinating that there's a great deal of songs existing out there about this fine metropolis. The aforementioned tune, song by The Guess Who, PS I LOVE YOU, hell, even the late legend Johnny Cash. Must be its beauty, maybe its people. This prairie town has cast a spell.
