The Canadian Association of Medical Teams Abroad (CAMTA) is a great charity organization based out of Edmonton. Ecuador has a high incidence of hip dysplasia, but many individuals cannot pay for the expenses that come with surgical care. This spring, CAMTA will be heading to Quito to perform orthopedic surgeries on members within the community, This will ensure that the cost of surgery is not a barrier to them receiving the medical care they deserve! CAMTA does missions to Ecuador every year, and past missions have made a huge difference in the Quito community. The team members, bands and individulas work to raise money to go towards surgical equipment, medications, and other supplies required for this year’s mission to be a success.
The Varmoors are a 5 piece good-time lovin' rock band. Their sound can be described as a wall of guitars that move, shake and rock the house. The band is set to release their debut EP "These Days" this summer
Landos rips a pungent combination of velvety indie rock and blues jams with a dash of folk. This smooth blend of lads is composed of hints of dad bod and undertones of gym rat. Enjoy responsibly.
a mismatch of musicians slammed together into the cauldron of a higher entity creating sounds that can only be described as Octoduck-esque.
