Lashes - Calgary
With four songwriters amongst its four members, Calgary’s Lashes fuse ‘90s dream pop and college rock with fuzz pedals and femme fury. Their 2018 EP, demos, vol 1., captures the raw energy of one of the city’s most active young bands.
STRANGE BREED - Vancouver
Strange Breed is a 4 piece, all queer, all female garage rock band based out of Vancouver, BC. Sounding like every 90’s riot grrrl fans’ feminist wet dream with an unexpected modern rock twist – Strange Breed has been described as a “Grittier B52’s”, or what a collaboration between Veruca Salt, Paramore and Hole would sound like. They have been supported by both The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings (FACTOR) and Creative BC in pursuit of their debut album, "Permanence."
They have had their music played on popular community/campus radio stations across the country including CBC Music & CITR 101.9 FM, and their song “Sharks” was selected as CJSF 90.1’s #1 Track of 2018. They were also Top 100 Finalists in CBC’s Searchlight 2019 Competition, listed as a producer’s pick.
“…It’s heavy subject matter made accessible through the group’s playful songwriting and boisterous personality, both in the studio and in front of a crowd." (Aly Laube, The Runner Mag)
Less Miserable - Calgary
We're a punk band. We're called
Less Miserable. It's almost music and it's kinda fun. That's all you need to know
Glam Garage - Calgary

.::.About CJSW 90.9 FM.::.
CJSW 90.9 FM is Calgary’s only campus & community radio station and one of Calgary’s only independent media outlets.
Several staff and over 300 volunteers work to program a 24/7 radio broadcast that features over 110 shows in more than 10 languages. CJSW takes pride in our mandate to bring diverse voices from throughout the Calgary and area community to speak with passion about issues that may not get mainstream exposure.
We increase the profile of local, independent artists and organizations by dropping their tracks, hosting them on our programs, and promoting their events. We tell stories that you won’t hear anywhere else, and we strengthen relationships among the arts, business, intellectual, and cultural communities and the audiences they are looking to reach.
CJSW 90.9 FM is based at the University of Calgary, and is a non-profit society. CJSW broadcasts music, spoken word and multicultural programming on 90.9 FM and online at cjsw.com.
CJSW 90.9 FM broadcasts out of Moh’kins’tsis (Calgary, AB) at the University of Calgary campus radio station located on Treaty 7 land. CJSW would like to acknowledge the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. CJSW would also like to note that the University of Calgary is situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and that the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Moh’kins’tsis”, which we now call the City
.::.About Calgary Queer Arts Society.::.
Calgary Queer Arts Society, formerly known as Fairy Tales Presentation Society, is a nonprofit organization located in Calgary, Alberta that exists to give voice to queer people and their stories. Historically, LGBTQ2A+ individuals have been suppressed, deprived of power, misrepresented and often overlooked by institutional support systems. We are committed to transforming this reality, and will continue to work passionately towards an inclusive future for all people.
The arts are an integral part of who we are. Storytelling connects us all, dissolves our differences and breaks down barriers, so that we can find aspects of ourselves in others, and of others in ourselves. Our stories are important to Calgary, which is why we are committed to creating and sharing the narratives that shape us. We use storytelling mediums and artistic endeavours to inspire thoughtful conversations that educate and strengthen communities and institutions.
