Rocking4Dollars is a full band open mic, each band plays for 15 minutes, doors at 8:30PM, music usually goes until after midnight. At the end of the night, the bands spin a wheel for prizes.
We’re slotted for 10:55PM, but please come for other bands too, the variety and range of talent can be incredible!
1) House of the Rising Sun
2) Don’t Wait Up
3) St James Infirmary Blues
Catch a couple of songs at the Centre Street LRT sometime shortly after 5PM, we’ll assemble and warm up there. Then, we’ll claim one of the four "Busk Stops" on Stephen Avenue, set up the amp for Margo, and entertain you with some great brass-rock songs. Ask about our new Mr Doubler to throw out the bass. And Ron has some fun drum tricks up his sleeve.
Busy at 5:30PM? No problem! We’re invited to Rocking4Dollars at Broken City. $3 cover! 10 bands, each plays 3 songs. Then we get to spin the wheel for prizes! Loads of fun, and a great way to drink beer and meet people. Starts at 8PM.
Our first $1000 Rockin' 4 Dollars at Broken City! Check out the lineup.

Come out after work, for those few people in downtown Calgary who still have jobs. The rest of you, you have no excuse. Free music.
In the spirit of Mardi Gras and the upcoming Juno awards, we are inviting all of YOU to join us in a parade through downtown Calgary! It's happening TWO TIMES: Thurs Feb 11
Starting and ending at Olympic Plaza. If you don't find us, follow the noise... Join us, bring your drum, bring your art, wear a costume, come create something weird.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
John from Delirium is helping to organize the series. Many Thursdays this summer feature different music genres, and people are coming out with their family, their kids, their parents, their sweetie, their dog, and/or their dancing shoes. On August 27 come out and catch Brass and Funk.
Bring cash, it’s pay-what-you-can. (Put small bills in one easily accessible pocket, and throw a few extra $20s or $50s in a secret pocket in case you have the best time of your life. If you’re having a hard time making rent this month, just bring your smile.)
We have some new tunes that you will love!
