Pigeon Breeders & Ghost Cars album release – Calgary

Pigeon Breeders & Ghost Cars / Jung People collaborative show
November 5th
90 min set
ALL AGES
50 seats
Experience the individual and collective expression of two celebrated Albertan experimental rock acts, Calgary’s Jung People and Edmonton’s Pigeon Breeders & Ghost Cars. The two bands will be presenting a special 90 minute* sonic experience, with Pigeon Breeders & Ghost Cars opening and closing the performance, and Jung People performing in the middle, and the two acts crossing over on both sides.
*Approximate time.

Calgary’s Jung People and Edmonton’s Pigeon Breeders have been artistic partners for over a decade. Since 2012, the two acts have been performing on bills together and this kinship was cemented by the development of “crossover” sets where the two bands would collaborate during the transition between each of their sets. The two bands went on a mini-tour to promote Jung People’s third album, Gold Bristle, which included a lush wintry performance at Calgary’s Lantern Church.

This show will be 90 minutes approximately.
Doors at 8:00 PM^
Performance begins at 9:00 PM^
$20 advance tickets available in-person at The Next Page book store
1217A 9 Avenue SE, Calgary
Limited capacity — [50] tickets available only.

Not one but THREE experimental acts from out of town are performing with locals Pigeon Breeders + Smokey.
They are all performing at this year’s Sled Island music festival in Calgary, AB.


Alder & Ash (Montreal) * Edmonton debut
http://alderandashmusic.bandcamp.com/
https://www.sledisland.com/2018/alder-ash

Alder & Ash is a counterpoint of two extremes. The music lies in stillness, introversion, and penitence. It lies in violence, cacophony, and angst. Alder & Ash plays solo cello with loop pedal to create improvised minimal classical music, with influence of doom metal, ambient, post-rock and noise.

Alder & Ash recently performed a European tour with Calgary’s FOONYAP.

Sled Island’s FFO: Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Chelsea Wolfe, Swans

Pigeon Breeders were formed in 2011 by Will Scott, Myles Bartel and Tyler Harland. Following Tyler’s departure from Edmonton to Halifax in 2016, the band has been exploring the project as a duo as well as with guest collaborators. They are happy to be joined by frequent collaborator Smokey (Smokey & The Feelings, Field & Stream, Boy Church).
