So Heartsounds only Alberta date on this tour is Canmore? freakin weird but ill be there if thats the case...

Unfortunately, yes. After Winnipeg they're crossing into the States and heading east. I think it's weird they're playing Canmore too, although I've been to Alberta plenty of times and that's probably my favourite place in the province. It's such a beautiful town.

Stoked! Deborah, Dangercat is playing the Winnipeg date as well, correct?

I wouldn't be surprised if they added a local band to the bill, but I'm not 100% sure. I hope so, I've been hearing about that band a lot lately and would love to finally check them out.

Probably favorite local acts.

Also; never been to The Death Trap, should be interesting.

I was there for the first time to see Sharks and Mockingbird Wish Me Luck last week. It's not much, it's just a tiny room under the Fyxx on Albert with no stage. But the atmosphere it creates is awesome.

Tiny enough that I should be concerned about the show selling out ?

Yeah, I'd definitely buy tickets in advance to be on the safe side. Did you see them at the Park back in April? I had to miss it because of school and I wonder how many people showed up. Honestly I'm a little surprised they're playing there because I figured Living With Lions had more fans in Winnipeg. But on the other hand, I saw them play the Cavern (which is basically the same sort of venue, except it has a stage) with Carpenter and Aspirations in November 2008 so maybe not much has changed. Only like 20 people showed up.

I don't know for sure either, but they might move it to a bigger venue if they sell out The Death Trap. Part of the problem is Winnipeg doesn't have a good all-ages venue for bands that size. The WECC is expensive to rent, I could see not wanting to commit unless they knew they could sell a certain number of tickets. Plus a lot of bands in their situation don't do well at the WECC anyway. The Flatliners booked that place out and it was depressingly empty. And the Park just isn't a good venue, plus I've heard stories about the owner ripping bands off. The Death Trap just opened a few months ago and it's already shaping up to be the best alternative it seems, even if it's tiny.
