This coming weekend we are playing a couple of shows in Red Deer (The Vat – Oct 18) and Lethbridge (The Slice – Oct 19). The LA Beat wrote a preview titled Cowpuncher transforms from country to rock and roll.
While they may have started out as planning on being a seven piece bluegrass band and even played the Canadian Country Music Awards, things have changed for the new, lean, mean Calgary based, raunchy rock and roll quintet.
“So what are we doing playing the Canadian Country Music Awards? We’re definitely not a country band now, so we need to re-educate people. It’s nice to have a new CD out to do that,” said Olah, who broke a couple of ribs after “going all rock and roll and jumping off the amps” at those same Canadian Country Music Awards.[…]
They will be playing a dual CD release party at the Slice with their good friends Fast Romantics, Oct. 19.
“ Are there any fireworks stores in Lethbridge,” asked Cowpuncher frontman Matt Olah, possibly giving a glimpse into the shenanigans to happen at their first Lethbridge show in at least a year.Cowpuncher returns to Lethbridge, Oct. 19. ‘It’s been too long,” he said.
It’s such a real treat to be able to get back to Lethbridge. But also it’s special to reconnect with Fast Romantics. We were all friends in Calgary and a couple of years ago they left for Toronto. On Saturday we will raise our beers, tell our stories and hold court just like the times before now!
