CFCR'S 9TH ANNUAL SLED ISLAND SHOWCASE!


May 22, 2019
CFCR is gearing up for the NINTH Annual Saskatoon showcase at the Sled Island Music & Arts Festival in Calgary, AB. Join us at one of our favorite spots in the world - Tubby Dog (1022 17th Ave SW, Calgary, AB) on Friday, June 21st for truly outstanding musical contributions from...
 
2pm – 3 Moonjask
3 Moonjask look as surreal on stage as they sound through headphones. Each member of the masked, lo-fi trio crafts mini-universes somewhere between house, vaporwave and ambient music, sometimes colliding forcefully and others just washing along together in harmony.
 
Chill out with these shoegazing Toontown shifters as they push post-punk sunshine up Calgary’s urban avenues. Bask in an infusion of golden indie-rock radiance that warms you up from the inside out.
 
Wild, mystic and weird, the Sex Geckos are “the party that you would call the cops on, but they’re playing the Velvets, Sonic Youth, Thee Oh Sees and Sabbath, so you let it slide.” A manic, punk, psycho gutter-pop tripout with haunting vocals. Don’t underestimate the raw energy of these rock and roll aliens.
 
Two years after the release of their latest album, Surf Manitou, The Garrys have become a bonafide Western Canadian musical institution. The three sisters from Saskatoon have turned their live show of landlocked surf music into a potent package that they’ve been delivering to crowds across the globe.
