Can you see Hooded Fang?

2012/06/19

If you don’t have a microscope handy and can’t quite make out what this poster says, you should know two things: 1) carrots don’t help your eyesight, so don’t feel bad about not eating vegetables anymore. 2) Hooded Fang are coming back to Edmonton, and they’re one Toronto band you should keep on your music plate.

One of the first bands ever featured on this blog , they’ve been through Edmonton before, playing with groups like The Rural Alberta Advantage and Cuff the Duke. They’ve also been on some list that starts with the word Polaris.

Check them out when they hit the Wunderbar on Thursday night, June 21st. They’ll be playing with Parlovr and Goose Hut as part of the Pop Off Tour.

And if you turn into a pumpkin at night or aren’t old enough to vote, they’ll also be playing in Churchill Square as part of the Works Festival earlier in the day, at 5 o’clock in the afternoon.

In Defense of Nickelback or: How I learned to stop worrying about having credibility

2012/01/24

When I started this blog, if someone had asked me what the last thing I’d ever write on here would be, I’d have quickly answered: “a post defending Nickelback.” Then the question-asker and I would have had a good laugh, do an awesome high-five and a jagerbomb, compliment each other on our great new haircuts, and then go back to talking about some obscure indie band that neither of us had actually heard of, but pretended to out of fear of being judged as less than cutting edge by the other.

The other thing I never wanted to do with this blog was write a run-on sentence with too many commas. As you can see, I’ve already done that. Now, here I go with the whole defending Nickelback thing. Of course, I understand if that means you’ll stop reading this post at the end of this sentence…
