Fleetwod Mac Edition/ Deicha's Birthday - Wednesday June 27th
Best of all, JASU opens the party at 8PM with "Elevator Funk". And we close the night with dPlus Horn Band!
In advance of the occasion we made one of our 2015 Live Videos available as a sneak peak! The audio is undergoing final mixing/mastering now by the incomparable Dewi Wood from Infinite Loop for our upcoming EP release, but we wanted to give you this sneak preview!
Hope to see you on Thursday!
We’re opening for the Tod Hughes project!
"Tod Hughes is a Canadian storyteller, who writes real music that comes from the heart.
Songs about love, hurt, happiness, fear, disappointment and fun...
Toe tapping melodies and memorable choruses".
$10. We’re on at 8PM sharp.
More details on Facebook. We really hope you can come out. The Ironwood Stage is a great venue, and you’ll love Tod’s project.
Here’s an awesome picture of The Tod Hughes Project:
Eau Claire, 5:30ish
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!
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 $1000 Rockin' 4 Dollars at Broken City! Check out the lineup.
Bands, spread the word and let's pack the place.Posted by Rockin' 4 Dollar$ Calgary - Every Wednesday on Monday, March 21, 2016
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!

The Tweed Ride supports Bicycles for Humanity, who send used bikes to developing countries. If you are going to ride, you are encouraged to register in advance. Please bring extra cash for the band, it will show your support for the music, we’ll collect it and pass 100% of it on to Bicycles For Humanity.
Friday’s show is a private show for the clients of the Drop In Centre. We are donating our music and reports are it’s a lot of fun. Even though it’s a private show, we can add you to the guest list. If you’ve never been there, this may be your chance. Send us a note using the "Contact" link at the bottom of every page on the website.
Saturday’s show is at the Rosedale Hall from 7:00PM to 10:00PM. Tickets from email@example.com. The $30 price includes your meal (at 7:30), one drink, and the music. It’s a silent auction fundraiser for the Rosedale Tennis Club, and you will be hard pressed to find a better bunch of guys than the people in the Rosedale Tennis Club.
Russ Gauthier from False Flag will be drumming for us at both shows!
The next day we play the Rosedale Tennis Clubs "Light It Up" fundraising gala. There will be great tennis, dinner and a drink, and some outdoor and indoor music, for $30. We plan to mix it up with some traditional New Orleans in the late afternoon, and revert to our pop/rock dance in the evening.
In the meantime, next week we will play a busking show Aug 20 in Kensington, weather permitting. Hope you can come out, this will be Michael’s last show of the summer before he takes off back to Berklee School of Music in the fall. Watch twitter for last minute info.
AND AND AND AND our video will be dropping soon. It’s got a lot of great outdoor footage, really showing off our fine city and the fun we’ve had all summer. We can’t wait!
There are some great street performers at Sunfest, so come early, and stay late. Hope to see you!
There are a lot of fun things coming up on the Delirium SPB schedule!.
Most importantly, the amazing Lemon Bucket Orkestra are coming to Calgary! We have a show scheduled with them on July 15. It will be an outdoor show, a Stampede Hangover Picnic. There will be bicycles, a parade, dancing, etc. etc. etc. Save the date July 15 and watch this space for details! This will be a pay-what-you-can event, not a free event, to support the 16 piece LBO on their Canada Tour.

July 1: Video Shoot Day and Free Show in Chinatown at the Street Festival
Calgary Stampede July 3 to July 13. Lots of busking! LBO arrive July 10. We have country tunes!

We’ll return triumphantly to Eau Claire (the circle amphitheatre by the windmill) on Sunday May 25, around 3PM. (If there’s some other event going on there, check the Peace Bridge just a few blocks West.)
Hope to see you! Bring your camera and shoot photos and video, so you can upload it for us. Bring your dogs, kids, grandparents, etc.
We’re also playing, of course, along with Hats and Black Ties, and Class Action. These two bands are the mainstay of ska in Calgary. It’s worth coming out just for them!
