We’re finally playing a Calgary show again! Our last one was the album release for Jung People’s Gold Bristle back in November. We’re super excited for this one! Here’s the info from the event page:
"Pleased to be back with another show after a little June hiatus. We’ll be making up for it in August with 2 shows. Details to come.
Also excited to have Jeremy Curry once again handling the music that is not being performed live. His taste is impeccable, and you’ll be better for sampling his record collection.
Very excited to finally have this Edmontonian crew grace the Bug Incision stage. Had the pleasure of witnessing them play multiple times on their home turf (where they are an integral part of the very happening scene up there), and the witness part is key: watching these guys (that’s Will Scott, Tyler Harland, and Myles Bartel) mangle & manipulate their pile of guitars, FX, and amplified is a bunch of fun in itself. In their own words:
"Pigeon Breeders are an experimental trio, started in 2011, that specializes in free improvisation with ambient, electroacoustic, noise, and psychedelic elements.
Steeped in the burgeoning Edmonton noise/experimental scene, the group developed a style described as “gently unsettling … beautiful, intelligent sonic art.” The band has put out six releases for the Ramshackle Day Parade label. They have also collaborated with Calgary’s Jung People, Brooklyn-based trumpeter Nate Wooley, Edmontonian guitarist Connor O’Brien (Flint, Fuck the Tundra), as well as Edmonton-based filmmaker Lindsay McIntyre.”
THE CANCELLING HUNGER PROPHECY
This made-to-order duo is comprised of two of the most solid figures in the Calgary experimental music community. Mark Fleischhaker is well-known for his karaoke terrorizations on Sundays at Broken City, his anything-goes/vocal madness solo project Terrible Crayon, semi-improvised metal trio Lord Something (in which he displays his formidable chops at the drumkit), and the brevity-obsessed hardcore (also semi-improvised) duo Faster Disco. Eric Hamelin has been making the most noise recently with Fuck Off Dad, a raging drums/guitar duo with Eddie Dalrymple (check their blasted tape on Unit Structure), but he’s al Etso well-loved for his riveting solo drums & electronics sets, the unjazz trio/duo Nomoreshapes, and one-off appearances in groups with names like XL Hippie, Broken Assholes, and Used Carl. I think it’s safe to say that the set will be a) raucous, b) potentially humour-laced, c) loud-ish, and d) the first time they’ve played as a duo.
The duo of Ethan Vilu and Liam Zanin. The former is known for his work as Starr Party (recently played a Sled Island set), and the latter has logged work under the name Women Of Jazz. The duo describe themselves as “ritualistic harsh noise”. Sounds good to me. Very excited for this Bug Incision debut. Both men have recorded for the Aught Void label, and their music can be found here:
