CFCR Saskatoon Community Radio is gearing up for the Seventh Annual Saskatoon showcase at the Sled Island festival in Calgary. Join us at one of our favorite spots in the world - Tubby Dog (1022 17th Ave SW, Calgary, AB) on Friday, June 23rd for superb musical contributions from:
Shooting Guns provide the perfect soundtrack for the morning after the apocalypse, when you are sitting in the rubble of your home in a bathrobe and think, 'What should I do now?' and end up zoning out for hours in a psychedelic trance instead of making a survival plan. Bad move on your part, because you are probably going to die.
4pm - Man Meat
Forged in the frigid winter landscape of Saskatchewan, Man Meat have established themselves as a badass, answer-to-no-one noise punk band in Saskatoon’s music scene, producing an original and unique sound fraught with anxious riffs and desperate melodies.
If The Black LIps and The Shangri-Las went on a date, they would dance to The Garrys. Blood harmony surf garage on moooorphine.
2pm – Ponteix
With anxious rhythms, tidal waves crashing, and intoxicating vocal timbres, Ponteix has just begun to take on the grand nature of the living skies they write under.
Issue du milieu des prairies, la voix rauque et enivrante de Mario Lepage éclate en échos sur des rythmes saccadés. Les vagues de délais en stéréo dansent sur les explosantes fréquences de l'océan sonore que produit Ponteix.
Hit up for FREE downloads/streaming audio from all four Saskatoon bands. Check it out and download them all, and pass 'em to all of your friends who are going to be at the festival.
This showcase is absolutely FREE! Everyone welcome. This is an all ages, licensed event.

If that wasn't enough fun for y'all, the showcase offers a fantastic $5 Beer and Hot Dog special (selection and quantities limited). Be sure to come down and see great Saskatoon music with some tasty treats!
Showcase proudly supported by our good friends at SaskMusic, a member-based, non-profit corporation representing the four components of the music and sound recording industries and community of Saskatchewan
