NEWS & EVENTS

HOLY HELL! The summer has come and is almost done with no updates! EEK! Sorry kids! I was actually out enjoying many shows in The Peg! A HUGE thank-you goes out to our very own Lara for all the interviews she's done this summer!!!

Anyhow, the site is still a work in process, and one of the things that I have added is an interactive calendar for bands and promoters to post their own shows. I have found that this is what takes up most of my time...so by eliminating that step for myself, more time can be spent interviewing etc. Feel free to click on the "gigs" section to add your shows! MORE UPDATES TOMORROW NIGHT!

Just wanted to let all you fine folks of Winnipeg know that the band X-Tracted house was torched. I am not sure what all was lost, but a benefit social will be taking place August 30th at the West Kildonan Legion on Hartford and Main. Tickets are $10.00 and 4 bands t.b.a. As soon as I know more info, I will be sure to post.

As usual, get in touch with us for interviews,etc. Hope you are all having a great summer!

Come join our Facebook Group!

We are also on MySpace!

THIS MONTH'S INTERVIEWS

ELEPHANT - Cool band from Toronto, Ontario who came through Winnipeg with Skate4Cancer’s 2nd annual The Cure is Knowledge tour. Read more...

BASS LIONS - 3 cousins from Ontario and one "brutha", who describes their music "a lot like a car crash: people tend to rubberneck." Read more...

NYKI KING - A young man from Montreal who plans on releasing a full length album late this year. Read more...

NORTHERN SHADOWS -Oh where oh where shall I begin with this one. Northern Shadows, (funny that they are named that because as I write this I’m sitting in the Northwest Territories at a fly in fishing camp) are amazing Winnipeg band whose musical influences are as interesting and unique as they are. Read more...

WAX MANNEQUIN -Wax Mannequin was born in the smoke and industry of Hamilton, Ontario; a damaged, underdog town; a perfect breeding ground for strange, variant things. Incorporating folk, scrappy prog-metal and a tireless creative ethic, Wax infused his local influences with road-broken experience to forge something new. Read more...

LIVING WITH LIONS -Living with lions is an exceptional band out of BC. Their music is well, in my opinion awesome. Read more...

NOCTURNAL DIVINITY - Samael took time out of his busy schedule of touring to give us this interview. Thanks! Read more...

UBIQUITOUS SYNERGY SEEKERS - Ubiquitous Synergy Seekers, what a very cool name for a band. It’s unique and kind of sticks with you. Read more...
