The autumn brings cold, chilly weather. Mittens to ride bikes. Scarves over beards. Amp hauls in the freeze and all of that nasty getting freezing business. But the fall is also one of the Calgary music community’s finest seasons. This coming Oct20 the Calgary Beer Core will be hosting their annual awards gala – and you get to vote!
If you’ve never been to the CBC Awards before, let me give you the head’s up. The show is really a parody of awards shows, with punks, rockers, and metalheads all showing up in their finest duds for a night of drinking, laughing, and entertainment like you’ve never witnessed. We have had a sold out show every year, so seriously consider buying those tickets early.
Once again, our home this year will be The Distillery, and as this year’s theme for the night is Masquerade (as in Victorian, not fetish party) with an underground music flair, you can expect to see lots of masks and feathers.
Last year we played the awards and received the CBC’s “Best New Band” award. This year we’re up for a bunch:
- Worst Band Name
- Best Show
- Best Bass
- Best Drummer
- Best Singer
- Best Guitarist (3 of us)
- Best Rock Band; and
- Best Overall Band
Vote us to victory! http://www.calgarybeercore.com/voting/
We are also very excited to show you the new video collaboration featuring “Nouveau Hobo”, a comic written by James Davidge and illustrated by Fiona Staples. James’ book My Modern Panic: Short Stories by James Davidge was released last Thursday!
We had a great time in Edmonton over the weekend. Thanks for the hospitality E-town! We got home in time for a Cowpuncher holiday family dinner at Jeff & Becky’s last night. I’m still a bit turkey sleepy.
This Friday we’re home again with a show at Broken City.
