River Jacks are the kind of band that can’t help but breed nostalgia; their ever prevalent punk rock roots make you want to raise your pint and look back on the days when there was no such thing as an early night and certainly no morning meetings. There was just music that made you want to put your arm around the person beside you and sing along until sunrise. Perhaps this warm fuzzy feeling is partially due to the fact that the gentlemen of River Jacks are from bands that we used to share those ever fleeting moments with. - https://www.facebook.com/riverjackscalgary/
"Politics and history, punk and folk all intersect in River Jacks." -Vue Weekly
"With a few Calgary music scene veterans on board and plenty of experience to draw from, River Jacks are no stranger to the stage and the road." -Ottawa Showbox
Jon Creeden & the Flying Hellfish
Jon Creeden's lung capacity could rival that of the Big Bad Wolf, except when he huffs and puffs every house comes down regardless of construction materials. With just an acoustic guitar, a restless DIY work ethic, and a voice like gravel thats been dipped in honey Creeden has been touring, recording, playing, driving, singing, screaming, drinking, dancing, crashing on couches, and winning people over relentlessly for over seven years now, and there are no sign of him slowing down. Jon Creeden plays the kind of music that makes summer feel warmer, The kind of music that keeps a house party raging until dawn. The kind of music that leaves you hoarse from singing along. His new split 7" Home with Jesse LeBourdais is out now on My Fingers My Brain Records, expect to see him in a town near you, Summer / Fall 2014.
Inspired by the Riot Grrl movement and the "girls to the front" mantra, Mademoiselle, uses today's current social and political issues to inspire their music. Using only a bass, drums, and their voices the femme punk duo aims to create a sound as big as their messages.
