COMING EVENTS

Burlesque & Grotesque: Halloween Soiree
Friday, Oct 31
Get mad for the prettiest and grossest halloween extravaganza at Fratters on 48th! Calgary's best burlesque, THE GARTER GIRLS will be in the house along with COWPUNCHER. Its long been known that Calgary based band Cowpuncher offers one of the most energetic parties around! The band easily whips the crowd into a frenzy with maniacal and often sneering banter, daredevil antics, and sets that cross over from punk and imdi rock influences as well as a little bit of raw country soul. Their electrifying show will be all the more tight-as-nails as this will be their first show back after taking hibernation hiatus to write a new album. The music of Cowpuncher and the magical body exploration of burlesque will offer the perfect backdrop for not only Red Deer's best halloween party, but also for you to join celebrating Fratters one year anniversary in business. Showtime 8PM | $20 Advance tickets on sale at Fratters, 53rd Street Music, The Soundhouse Guitar & Record Shop

Pugs & Crows
Thursday, Nov 13
JUNO Award winning band, Pugs and Crows, performs original instrumental music that explores a wide range of sonic textures by blending elements of indie rock, modern jazz, and neoclassicism. The band infuses its compositions with the inventiveness of its players and warmth of its ensemble sound, while their anthemic melodies, lyricism and groove inspire audiences from all walks of life. Music reviewers have praised the quintet’s “great strength and beauty” and “warm luscious sound,” singling out its blend of jazz roots, avant-rock influences, and a suite-like compositional sense. An ensemble of accomplished musicians, Pugs and Crows rests on the flexibility and talent of each of its members to complete its original and captivating sound. Since the independent release of their debut album, Slum Towers, in 2009, the band has performed at many major music festivals and theatres across Canada, including The National Arts Centre in Ottawa, The Montreal Jazz Festival, and The Vogue Theatre in Vancouver (opening for renowned guitarist, Bill Frisell). Showtime 830PM | $6 Cover

Tasman Jude Band
Friday, Nov 14
The Canadian Reggae Infiltration has begun… TASMAN JUDE CD RELEASE "GREEN" TOUR. When Al Peterson & Caleb “BraveHart” Hart decided on a whim to climb onto the stage together in January 2013 they could not have predicted what the years ahead held. After only 3 improvised songs, they were surrounded by a crowd of people asking where their music could be found, and so a band (now including Adam Paananen and Derek Wilder) was formed! Less than months later they released their debut EP “El Norteño” which rose quickly to #2 on Canadian iTunes charts. The lead single “Take You Away” won a music video grant from Public Records & Telus and continued to win them a larger audience both at home and internationally. Soon after, the band recorded another single “Family”, with Earl Pereira (Wide Mouth Mason & The Steadies). The song received radio airplay both at home and internationally, winning awards from Alberta Music, Free FM, and The Akademia. However more importantly, the theme of “Family” truly came to define the band. Both in the band and within their community, there is an understanding that that love is truly what matters in this world and it is what binds us all. “We don’t have fans,” says Hart “we have family members. These people support us, love us and we hope to give them something more than music back”. On Oct. 7th 2014, the band released the first album (Green) of a planned triple-album concept. Upon it’s release it immediately shot up to #1 in the reggae charts an #67 in the overall Canadian iTunes charts. In support of the new album the band embarked on 5 months of touring throughout Canada, Australia and Trinidad & Tobago. Showtime 9PM | $10 cover

Little Miss Higgins & The Winnipeg Five
Thursday, Nov 20
Little Miss Higgins’ sound evokes the scent of a BBQ smoker, the swelter of a juke joint and a small town sweaty barn dance. Her music is a timeless library of Americana and a travelogue that moves from a New Orleans speakeasy to turn-of-the-century Paris and dustbowl Utah, while referencing subjects that include Louis Riel and dime-store panties. Teaming up with a likeminded cadre of Manitoba musicians, her classic songwriting, honed over her four albums, reaches new heights on her latest release Bison Ranch Recording Sessions. Showtime 830PM | $10 cover| Ph: 403.356.0033 for reservations
