We’re playing Saturday night at Bohemia with Calgarian Post-punkers CATHOLIC GIRLS and psych heavies KRANG.
It’s also my birthday, so come get me drunk.
Land of Marigold show on November 15th (free jazz/improv) with Ellwood Epps and Josh Zubot, who also play with crazy good groups like A Silver Mt. Zion, Rachet Orchestra, etc.

Thanks to Tinymixtapes , who did a review of us: http://www.tinymixtapes.com/cerberus/hobo-cubes-taiwan-split
TAIWAN is playing at Latitude 53 next weekend for their SCHMOOZY fundraiser. You should come out and give Latitude 53 some money, cause their awesome.
(this event is part of the ENDLESS BUMMER festival)
CJSR/ENDLESS BUMMER are happy to present a mindblowing night of some of the best bands in Edmonton (plus a token Calgary band, who happens to be amazing.)
RENNY WILSON - Recently signed to Mint Records, Renny Wilson is one of the best things going on in Edmonton music. There will be wild fornication in the audience as you watch his supple, writhing body doused in sweat.
Gary Debussy - People literally freak out when they see how good these mathrock marauders are. Prepare to have your face fucking melted.
Burrows - Three Edmonton veterans throwing down some Gawd Damn hot shit. Pop with super sexy arrangements.
Modern Aquatics - First show in Edmonton for these guys, born from the ashes of the beloved band Seahorse. Walls of guitar.
2 cool 4 internet
Show at 9:00
passes for the festival are 15 bucks, and get you into all the shows. If you’re a loser and just want to see one show you can pay $8, but that would be pretty dumb.
Our record comes out really soon, and Dirty Beaches had some kind words about it in an “shout out” article, (with a stream of the record on it.)
This is a total cheap plug here, but you should read the article and stream our shitty album.
If you aren’t sickened by my cheap pluggery yet here’s an interview we did with Vice’s music blog, Noisey, and if you still aren’t sickened by this, here’s the other stream of the album on Aux.tv
I swear I won’t cheap plug this again, I just got over-excited
Repost this and I will fucking love you forever:
Hi Edmonton Tumblr-peeps,
I’m setting up a music festival called ENDLESS BUMMER, which is basically 70-something of the shittiest bands in all of Alberta playing in a bunch of Whyte Ave venues like Pawn Shop, Wunderbar, DV8, The Empress, The Buckingham, Steel Wheels, Cha Island, Tavern on Whyte, etc.
Some of the bands who will be playing will be: Mitchmatic, Field and Stream, Lab Coast (Calgary,) Arrowz, Powder Blue (Sakatoon,) Renny Wilson, Travis Bretzer, The Faps (Saskatoon,) Cold Water (Calgary,) Brazillian Money, Catgut, Flint, Matthew A Wilkinson (GP,) James Renton, Morals, Modern Aquatics (Calgary,) Catholic Girls (Calgary,) Smokey, Zebrapulse, Pigeon Breeders, The Stugglefucks, Misery Mountain Boys, Archaics, Rattle Rattle, BOOSH, Gary Debussy, Wizards (Saskatoon,) Desiderata, Royal Iguana Fur, Banshee, Todos Caeren, Disabler, Scrapbooker, The Diet (Calgary,) Nolan Bossert and like a billion others
A pass is $15 for EVERYTHING, so you should all buy one and come to a bunch of shows.
P.S. - I hate to be “that shitty promoter guy,” but please repost this so more people who are into local/Albertan tunes will see this.
I would let this guy hang out with my kids.
Don’t go to Interhell, as it is an evil place.
This video is amazing.
New Canadiana :: Various Artists – Weird Pop (?) From The Peace Country
From the country road of Jesse Locke:
Recent seasons have seen the Peace Country crop up more than its fair share of surprises from the basement jammer outposts of Goose Lake and Grand Prairie. Now teamed with the Crystal Country crew and some tight-knit, loose-brainedRamshackle regulars, these diasporic cliques have combined for a comp and accompanying zine. There’s a wealth of genre agnostic activity scattered throughout these 17 tunes, from recognizable names like Krang, Taiwan and thee almighty Matthew A. Wilkinson to lesser-hearkened standouts like Dutch Hey Wagon, Butterbones, Organ Magic, Bong Sample, Congregations and (that old chestnut) so much more. Lend an ear to these peacekeepers and follow the North Star to freedom.
I’ll be playing at Sled Island at midnight on Wednesday, at the Bamboo with Ital, Ghibli and Sanctums. We really really don’t sound anything like the other acts playing that night, (so we may end up being the background music to people smoke-breaks,) I’m super-psyched anyways, as the other bands are amazing and Sled Island is the best time for alcohol/hanging out/general debauchery.
Who are you most excited to see?
Foundmonton Zine Drops!
They have been in the works for a while now, and an idea for even longer, but Foundmonton zines are coming next weekend. But today we will be putting out some promo black & white copies with bonus 8x10 photographs at the locations featured in the zines! Stay tuned to our twitter & tumblr to catch a hint at the drop location.
We will be premiering three zines at Hard Copy; Foundmonton Z1, Foundmonton SE: Trolley Tunnel & Foundmonton Trains. There will be colour and black & white versions for sale and all will include a bonus printed photograph from our archives. Hard Copy is an artist books and zines fair at Latitude 53 showcaseing various innovative approaches of Edmonton based artists and writers. Hard Copy will host workshops on Sunday and a party on Saturday night. Check their website for more information and we will be sharing more details throughout the week.
Foundmonton as a digital media project has reached limits in its ability to articulate the message we want to convey about our own experiences, politics and hopes for unsanctioned art in Edmonton. The message we want to articulate is limited by the medium we present it in, the fast pace of image sharing makes it hard for pictures and words to stand out and stand the test of time. Taking near daily snapshots of our city’s street art and graffiti scene is what we like to do and we will keep sharing that. However we also want particular moments, and certain pieces, to have a place in our city’s creative culture that will last longer and simmer in way that digital media can’t offer.
We have teamed up with Nanette Samol, a freelance designer, photographer and supporter of Edmonton’s graffiti and street art culture. Together through regularly published zines, we hope to combined our photographs with her designs, to challenge misconceptions and build a more accountable graffiti and street art culture in Edmonton.
Good Luck! We hope to see you at Hard Copy on June 8&9 at Latitude 53 from 11am-5pm!
This is going to be awesome
