There's lots of link love today, be sure to check it out. I feel all this info needs a bulleted list:
- Volcanoless in Canada, a fantastic Saskatoon-based former/quasi-together band will be headlining Omfest, the 4th anniversary party for Ominocity. VIC's members have been very musically active with other endeavours, and it will be an awesome event, as per usual! It takes place on April 25.
- Dan Mangan+Blacksmith will be here on March 6. I will be out of town, and I am le sad. But please go so I can enjoy it vicariously through others. :)
- We Were Lovers - our hometown sweetheart pop duo will grace the Amigos stage this Saturday.
- Hey Rosetta! and Stars will be at O'Brien's on Monday - I gave away tickets to that show this morning. Exciting stuff!
- Regina's own Andy Shauf is TONIGHT, and it's sold out, so if you were one of the lucky ones to snag a ticket, you're in for a fantastic show filled with his lovely tunes and incomparable stage banter.
- Father John Misty. This new album is so succinct and beautiful. I just love it. The link I shared is the full album stream from Sub-Pop via YouTube. Go enjoy!
- Elliott BROOD is in Saskatoon tomorrow night with Wilderness of Manitoba. That will be a great show.
There's so much greatness coming up, including our International Women's Day event, which is always a great evening of celebration. Our Chinese New Year banquet is tonight too.
Also, if you're awake in the wee hours of Thursday you should listen in on the Homelessness Marathon, which will be broadcasting live from 1 am to 6 am. According to the CFCR website, this annual broadcast is shared by campus and community stations across Canada (there is also an American marathon) in an effort to raise awareness about homelessness in Canadian communities. The Marathon will include segments contributed by 14 stations representing six provinces.
Talk to you on Thursday, February 26!
