We spent the weekend in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. It was our first time playing out there and we didn’t know what to expect. The rooms we stayed in were a bit suspect and when we got to the venue the crowd was comprised of VLT players, smokers and tables of bar regulars drinking after work on Friday. Pretty blue collar. Which was awesome. Right from the start we saw both old and young couples sweeping across the dance floor (and occasionally knocking into our PA system which we frown upon…) Two nights of four setters and we were ready to clean up and get home…
We have two more shows before the new year and both are in Calgary.
Calgary, AB – 9PM – w/ Sam Savage Smith, Young Ones, & No River
|Commonwealth Bar & Stage
Calgary, AB – 9PM – Prohibition Party, New Years Eve 2011
December 31, also known as New Year’s Eve, we’re excited to play our first show at Calgary’s newest club, The Commonwealth Bar & Stage. It’s going to be a crazy night!
Commonwealth Bar and Stage and Modern Vintage Saturdays Present: Prohibition Party, New Years 2011.
Join us for our first New Years Eve where we celebrate a time when gin was made in bathtubs, medicinal bourbon fell off the back of trucks, beer was smuggled across borders and speakeasies were a way of life. We’ll turn back the clocks and turn them to 2012 all in the same night. It’ll be a time for rocking, drinking, eating, dancing and celebrating.
