CFCR Saskatoon Community Radio is gearing up for the Sixth Annual Saskatoon showcase at the Sled Island Music & Arts 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 24th, for superb musical contributions from:

5pm – Adolyne
Adolyne incites an ugly musical knife fight between 90s Noise mongers from the heavier end of the Amphetamine Reptile fold and the brooding sonic theorists of the Hydra Head Industries class, while assorted voices from the post-hardcore and math-rock crowds goad them on with unsavory and dangerous advice.

4pm - The Switching Yard
Tempering grooves in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan since 2010. Brothers not of blood, but of rock. Miscreants with poise, harbingers of noise. Loud, yet vulnerable. Obstinate, yet expressive. Simple, yet chaotic. A composite of oxymorons (no pun intended) that translates into a long, textured drive, cured in pulsing stagnancy - that will soothe you into your own personal hell.

3pm -  Waitress
Waitress are a duo who make their music with a messy, simple, broken beauty. If John Maus is the sound of the 80s playing muffled in another room, then Waitress are the sound of your dreams just around the corner, slightly out of reach but still bright enough to warm you while you chase the sun.

2pm – respectfulchild
respectfulchild is an instrumental violin project with a sound that's been described as ambient underwater fairy music. Their performances are minimal in set-up, utilizing their violin and a few pedals, to focus attention on their hypnotic rhythms and textures.

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!

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.

Showcase proudly supported by our good friends at SaskMusic.
