About this Journal
Established on LiveJournal: April 8, 2005.

A place for Calgarians to learn more about the great music happening in our city!

Please try to include the following in gig posts:

- Name and link to artist/band site
- Venue location
- Dates of gig
- Access: general, all-ages...
- Ticket prices
- Scheduled doors time
- Projected show time (since things tend to run late!)

Any other ideas, post to community!

Local promoters and venues are invited (and encouraged!) to sign up for a free LiveJournal account and post their upcoming gigs to this community. If you have a favourite venue, let them know about this space. The more gigs we all know about, the better. Music is often better live. Support Calgary's music scene, go to shows and spread the word! :)

Hey there!
I'm trying to book a few gigs around Alberta early this July.
Any tips for a good place to play in Edmonton or Calgary?

Apr. 2nd, 2009 @ 02:21 pm Calgary Flames & Dion Phaneuf Fans: Toyota Face Off
For all Calgary Flames fans:

Dion Phaneuf, defenceman, of the Calgary Flames is giving you and 15 friends (16 people total) a chance to spend some time on the ice with him. If you've been to the games, you've probably seen the masks being handed out at Pengrowth Stadium. It's a contest being run by Toyota, and it actually runs until the Flames get kicked out of the season. Here's hoping they make it into the playoffs.

Visit Face off with Dion.com and enter to win an hour of ice time with Dion Phaneuf. He'll show you all the game secrets that make him so awesome!

Open to Alberta residents only!

Mar. 4th, 2009 @ 01:06 am Big Rock Untapped
So Big Rock Beer (an Albertan treasure) hosts a website for artists to stick up music for people to check out. It's really cool, totally free, and is a resource to familiarize yourself with some of the local acts that might be haunting your neighbourhoods. Once a year-ish a panel of judges take a few of the submissions (not necessarily the most 'tapped') and release a disc called 'Big Rock Untapped' which comes free with your purchase of a case of Big Rock Beer. You get beer, you get a CD, win win. Albertan artists like John Wort HannamBen Sures and the scrabulous Michael Bernard Fitzgerald have been included in the previous offerings of this disc. Zang. 

So yeah, if you're up for listening to some Canadian indie goodness then go bust it open.
