The summer festival season has now concluded, but that only means that the fall festival season is set to begin! Two up-and-coming music fests are in that mix, including this weekend’s Bermuda Fest.
Ken Mode – This Winnipeg sludge metal outfit, led by brothers Jesse and Shane Mathewson, has released six albums to date; their live shows are revered for their crazy freneticism. They have also been nominated for a Juno, and been longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize.
Mobina Galore – This punk-pop vocals-sharing duo out of Winnipeg, featuring Jenna Priestner on guitar and Marcia Hanson on drums, has been receiving waves upon waves of airplay on college and satellite radio for Bad Love Song. Playing with Worst Days Down, Snake Legs, and The Worst.
Mark Mills – This electro-pop artist from Calgary is performing with a couple of extraordinary local musical acts as well, the beloved Doug Hoyer, and electro-rockers Viking Fell.
Chad Vangaalen – This Calgarian indie rocker (above) has been touring North America and making fans throughout on the back of six albums, including his most popular, Diaper Island.
Tuques – This band is likely the best the city has to offer in its burgeoning “shoegaze” scene. They’re playing with Fist City, a punk rock act from southern Alberta that got their start in 2009, and are led by twin brothers.
Walkervilles – The last time this blues-rock trio was in town, an impending blizzard meant they arrived late for sound check, and had to depart immediately after their set concluded.
Lisa LeBlanc – This alt-folk artist is playing one of the city’s newest and coolest venues, along with Gabrielle Papillon.
F&M – After a series of five cool-vibed shorts from Portugal that teased their newest video, this local alt-folk group is hosting a release show for said full-length video.
Primus – This San Francisco alt-metal outfit is touring to support their album from last fall, Primus & the Chocolate Factory.
Two Bears North – This local indie-pop group is part of “A French Toast To Women,” a charity brunch for the E4C Women’s Emergency Accommodation Centre. Other performers include Edmonton’s Poet Laureate Pierrette Requier, Alex Vissia, Jenie Thai, Celeigh Cardinal, and more.
Akon – This R&B/hip hop artist rose to fame in 2004 on the back of the single Locked Up.
Alt-J – Formed by four friends at Leeds University, this English indie project has seen their stock skyrocket over just two albums, thanks to tons of radio airplay across Europe and North America, and inclusion in a number of television shows.
