Wow, this week 2012, the Ramshackle Day Parade compilation, has reached #1 on the CJSR Top 30. Thanks to all the people who bothered to pollute the airwaves with all those waveform obscenities.
If you’re interested in buying a physical copy, come check out the monthly shows. They occur [with the odd exception] on the 22nd of every month. It is also available at Listen Records here in Edmonton. Maybe you’ll pick up a copy of Nocturnal Reveries while you’re at it.
If you’re cheap like most people (ourselves included), you can just download both for free at bandcamp. Enjoy!
This happens next week. Highly recommended, as per usual, is the monthly Ramshackle Day Parade. This instalment will feature:
Zebra Pulse, who have officially become a quintet with the addition of drummer Sean Macintosh.
Lakes, who recently moved to Edmonton and blew minds at the March edition.
and David Finkleman and Robert Burkosky, who have been really giving it to us this year. They are both members of Edmonton’s glorious Energetic Action.

Pigeon Breeders live @ No Face 10.
Pith Gallery, Calgary, AB.
March 17th, 2012.
This Saturday, Bohemia will be crashed by five of Calgary’s finest, who will be spreading the sonic gospel with free-improv, harsh noise and everything in between.
Chris Dadge – One of Calgary’s prodigal improvising musicians and leader of the Bug Incision concert series/label, he also plays in Lab Coast and works with approximately five billion other bands.
Bitter Fictions – Guitar looped noodling/confessing/fuzzing/excersizing/spirituals/tomfoolery/meanderings.
Citadel – Ex-Suicide Bomber Josh Fraser is the Michael Jordan of harsh noise.
nR – Not-so soothing business from tall/strapping Aaron Sereda. Fun Calgary Fact: Aaron actually grew up down the street from Canadian Football League legend Lanny McDonald.
Protagonist/Antagonist – Fun Calgary Fact – Larry is nine and a half feet tall, which is 1/237th the height of the Calgary Tower. His music is very very loud.

From the promoter:
It may be a faux pas on my part to have booked a show in Calgary absent any Calgarian artists, but when FOUR amazing and talented acts offer to pile into two cars and drive for three hours in the middle of March to play in exchange for beer and a floor to crash on, you just f#cking BOOK IT. Come and trip on what attendees of the Ramshackle Day Parade have been tripping on for months now. These people are good, and so is their sound. Get hip to it!
