Festival Show >> Ponderosa Arts & Music Festival |
Nothing makes us more stoked for summertime than festival slots. Give us festival slots and we will be your best friend for the whole summer. If we’re ever mad at you, toss some festival slots at us and we’ll spend the next couple hours just being stoked. Camping outdoors with fellow musicians has proven to be ridiculously entertaining, if not just ridiculous; and watching the other bands is a hell of a treat in itself. So to sum up: Let’s do a festival.
Ponderosa Arts & Music Festival – Labour Day Long Weekend – Rock Creek BC. It’s near Osoyoos. Come camp. Swim in a lake. Check out this lineup; so many of our favourite people in this thing, I just know it’s going to be memorable.

The Fortunate Isles, The Oh Wells – Electric Owl May 9 |
We are pleased to be teaming up with The Oh Wells to welcome The Fortunate Isles from Regina, SK to The Electric Owl on May 9. If you like us you will love their vintage disco punk vibes. Plus this is the best poster I’ve seen in a while. It reminds me of wanting my little league soccer game to end so I could go play with my birthday present.
Also, we’re going to be sailing to Victoria the next day to open for them and hopefully we will all become really good friends. Wanna get in on this? Come by and hang out with us May 9 at the Electric Owl.
Fields of Green EP Release |
We were super stoked to be asked by our besties, Kelowna’s Fields of Green to open for the Vancouver EP release. Winners of Vancouver’s Fox Seeds competition, and co Peak finalists with us in last year’s Top 20, they are staggeringly talented and we love getting to see them play.
Then we became more stoked when we found out that our camping buddies from last year’s Live at Squamish festival, Young Pacific are going to be opening too. All set up for one of Vancouver’s best stages at the Rickshaw Theatre, this proves to be a strong lineup of BC rock n’ roll.
Facts live at CMW and Montréal |
Facts is packing up with their friends and tourmates 41st and Home and heading East for the annual Toronto gathering of music, art, and business that is Canadian Music Week. While we’re not show-hopping and catching up with fellow musicians, we’ll be appearing in our own showcases, winning over new fans and colleagues.
But the most exciting thing is that we are finally going to get to Montréal. We weren’t able to get there in the fall, and we know that there are going to be great fans there for our music. It’s the first time there for 41st and Home as well, and we’re playing with a rad indie shoegaze band called Femme Accident.Show Dates: March 20, CMW Showcase, Gladstone Hotel - Toronto March 22, Le Cagibi with Femme Accident and 41st and Home – Montréal
Sky Wallace, CMW, and the Return of 41st and Home |
This spring we throwing our instrument cases in a plane and flying east to Toronto for Canadian Music Fest; but before we go, we’re playing a sweet hall show with our travelling buddies, 41st and Home. Skye Wallace will be there as well. She’s stunning. It’s an early show so come hang out, have a few drinks and see us off on our mini-tour ; )
Ariane Moffatt at The Media Club |
We always enjoy meeting out-of-town bands, and it’s always an honour to be asked, so we’re happy to be opening for Montréal’s Ariane Moffatt. She’s a pretty rad French electro Pop artist, and you can expect all the francophones in Vancouver to crawl out of the woodwork and show up. So brush up on your français and come hang out.Show Details: Tuesday 26 February, The Media Club Doors at 8pm Tickets available at themediaclub.ca/tickets
