Wizard Rifle (Portland)
Wizard Rifle formed in Portland, Oregon in 2009. Teaming with Nanotear Booking, guitarist/vocalist Max Dameron and drummer/vocalist Sam Ford have performed extensively across the US and Canada, including appearances at Psycho Las Vegas, Hopscotch, Crucial Fest, MusicFest NW and SXSW, and tours with Bongzila, Buzzov*en, Black Cobra, Church of Misery, Saviors, Arabrot, Cutthroats 9 and NAAM.

Their powerful live shows and two full-length releases, 2014’s “Here in the Deadlight” and 2012’s “Speak Loud Say Nothing” have drawn great praise and kept critics and audiences on their toes. Wizard Rifle eludes classification and sonic pigeonholes, with an onslaught of sludgy psychedelic noise metal accented by vocal harmonies. On first listen many scoff at the possibility that such a cacophony could be produced by just two band members, but seeing is believing the force that is Wizard Rifle, and skeptics become Kool-aid guzzling disciples before the altar. Are you next?

Drawing from the sounds of Lightning Bolt, Karp, Sonic Youth, Black Sabbath and High on Fire, Wizard Rifle cannot sit still sonically for more than two seconds. Prepare thineself...

Bog Bodies
Catalytic conductors Bog Bodies offer jinky hybrid cardio sessions that’ll set your neural fibers ablaze. Frantic guitars and shrill screams sprouting with wild electro-organic ideas that interface via an otherworldly matrix. The gravitational pull of their chaotic live show is more consuming and compelling than any overblown astronomical phenomenon. -

Donkey-brained, Burro are not. An intellectual, nihilist approach to guitar and noise improvisation, Burro flay their instruments and themselves in order to uncover bizarre new semi-truths and hallucinatory fantasies. Their kosmische explorations frequently land them on different planes where they’re free to manipulate time and space away from the constraints of gravity and other silly rules of reality. -

*This event takes place on the territory of the Blackfoot and the people of Treaty 7 Region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Tsuu T'ina and the Stoney Nakoda First Nations. Calgary is also home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
