Comprised of members from the Fraser Valley, the off-to-the-side Vancouver suburb the group resides in, Drew Riekman, Jake Holmes, Reuben Houweling, and Mitchell Trainor came together to create something they had been looking for in their previous projects. Between the four, their projects have toured internationally (US, EU), recorded with Corin Roddick (Purity Ring), and played many esteemed festivals (Sled Island, Rifflandia, NXNE, SXSW). Blessed has, in its short existence, been fortunate enough to play alongside Garrett Klahn (Texas Is The Reason), The Courtney’s (Flying Nun), Preoccupations (JagJaguwar), Chastity (Captured Tracks) and Fucked Up (Matador). After a winter in Montreal, guitarist/vocalist Drew Riekman approached the three other members about a project designed to fulfill a desire wherein they could create music with no boundaries in it's creative process, and tour as relentlessly as they pleased. After touring North America once and Canada three times on the strength of their first four song EP, Blessed is releasing a new four song EP on May 5th on 12" through Kingfisher Bluez (Allison Crutchfield, Xui Xui) and Coin Toss Records (Drug Control, Edgewise) and Cassette through Double Lunch from Edmonton. - https://www.facebook.com/blessedband1234/ https://blessedband.bandcamp.com/ Crystal Eyes Dream-influenced rock meshing 60's garage and psych with 90's shoegaze. Their music finds what's happy about being sad and sad about being happy. The band recruited Chris Dadge (Lab Coast, Alvvays, Chad van Gaalen) to record 'No Man is and Island' (Shake! Records) and 'The Female Imagination' (Sweety Pie Records). - https://crystaleyesband.bandcamp.com/ If I Look Strong; You Look Strong Solo Project of Noah Michael since 2007.

From teeth rattling electric convulsions to barely-there, reverb drenched refrains, the musical inflections explored by Wares are as varied as they are enthralling. - https://www.facebook.com/Waresmusic/ https://wares.bandcamp.com/ Soft Cure soft cure is a four-piece that hinges on the mind of Seth Cardinal. An art student and enduring experimental musician (The Basement Demons), Cardinal plays with elements of performance and installation, injecting his bedroom pop with theatrics, questions concerning gender roles and childhood tropes. It’s a pop-friendly way to interrogate human identity. - https://www.sledisland.com/2017/soft-cure https://www.facebook.com/softcure/ https://softcure.bandcamp.com/ Hermitess Hermitess is the solo project of songwriter and harpist Jennifer Crighton, who comes by way of various other musical incarnations, including the consonant C and Devonian Gardens.

Free parking lot show w/ Woolworm, Feel Alright, Slut Prophet

22.September.2017

FREE EARLY show in the parking lot behind Local 510 with Woolworm, Feel Alright and Slut Prophet Where: Local 510 Public Kitchen and Tavern 510 17 avenue S.W Calgary www.localtavern.ca When: Friday Septembet 22nd, 2017 Doors: 6:00pm / bands 7;00pm Admission: FREE https://phillipsbeer.com/ Woolworm Existential lyrics, loud-quiet-loud dynamics and emotive guitars might have some confusing Deserve to Die for another entry in the current emo revival. Don’t get it twisted, however — Woolworm are a hardcore band who have decided to play pop music. Birthed from Vancouver’s hardcore scene, the band have perfected peppy pop songs that simultaneously bear the crushing weight of being alive. On the surface, the music falls somewhere between vintage indie-pop like the Chameleons and fuzzed-out stadium alt-rock like the Smashing Pumpkins, but every once in a while they drop nods to aggressive influences like Integrity and Cold World. Thanks to their relentless touring and penchant for pop perfection, Woolworm have spent the last decade steadily growing a feverish fanbase. Their 2012 album Believe in Ourselves is an undeniable (if under heard) cult classic, and they’ve got a stack of singles and cassettes to prove that it wasn’t a one-off fluke. With Deserve to Die, however, they’ve reached for something beyond themselves. The album was produced at Rain City Recorders with Jesse Gander (White Lung, Japandroids, Go It Alone). “It was our first time recording in a studio with a Wikipedia entry,” frontman Giles Roy says, noting that they made the most of Gander’s plethora of amps and guitars. The loud, hi-fi production adds gravitas to the band’s songs, which are both engaging on their own and as a whole. Deserve to Die, as its title suggests, is a vital, addictive and downright depressing examination of dread and mortality. “The songs are about loss, regret, alienation, and acceptance. And death,” Roy says. “Death is the only constant theme…. We all die, and you can't do much but laugh about it. Also, the whole thing was written over such a long period that our members’ lives happened to change drastically throughout the process. We've helped each other through those things at different times. So in some ways, it’s about everything at once.” With its hummable melodies and heady themes, Deserve to Die is a perfect late-summer record. You’ll find yourself singing along in the sunshine, then you’ll contemplate the tragedy that is human existence as the leaves begin to turn. - http://mintrecs.com/artist/woolworm https://woolworm.bandcamp.com/album/deserve-to-die https://www.facebook.com/wlwr Feel Alright A mixture of equal parts Wings and Big Star, there are enough three-part harmonies and restless guitar pop here to set a smile to anyone’s face. Feel Alright has survived its years in Calgary’s music scene on an effortless ability to please and Craig Fahner’s melodic intuition. It’s a pleasure to see them again. - www.sledisland.com https://feelalright.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/feelalrighttt/ Slut Prophet Sex positive, feminist lofi soundz https://www.facebook.com/slutprophet/ https://slutprophet.bandcamp.com/

BeatRoute Issue Release Party #7 - It's Almost Sled!

08.June.2017

We're teaming up with Big Rock Brewery and Local 510 to once again celebrate the release of our monthly print edition! This time, we actually brought copies--with copies of the Sled Island program guide inside, no less. This being the Sled Island issue, with 10 pages of interviews with and info about the festival's lineup, we thought it was only fitting to showcase three awesome locals who'll be performing at the festival: the punk rock of Éhagé (opening for Converge at Sled!), the bedroom pop of soft cure (Seth Cardinal from The Basement Demons + friends) and the tortured sounds of Lucid 44 (with everybody's favourite bar manager on the drum kit). As always, it's free to come in with a hat being passed around to help compensate the bands. We'll also be selling BeatRoute t-shirts with all proceeds going to the talent. Big Rock will be on special all night - keep yourself refreshed and the tip the living hell out of your bartenders!
