Pigeon Breeders (alone and with guests Waters and Dadge) + Nate Waters solo

We are very excited to have Edmonton’s Pigeon Breeders (Myles Bartel and Will Scott) back after too-long of an absence. The last time they graced a Bug Incision stage was back in 2015, but they’ve been busy ever since. Most recently working as a trio with fellow Edmontonian Matt Belton’s Ghost Cars project, they released Stasis last fall on the Pseudo Laboratories label.

This group has been active since the early ’10s, and when I say active, I mean active: they’ve played tons of shows around Alberta (they were in Calgary not too long ago on a juicy double bill with Jung People) and have released an impressive pile of cassettes and CDRs over the years, all documenting their increasingly refined vision of bric-a-brac-laden, electro-acoustic improvised music. As we wrote in an earlier write-up about them, “Edmonton’s kings of drift, this trio has honed in on a compelling mixture of liberally-effected guitars, assorted amplified junk and household objects, and electronics.”

They will perform a set on their own, and then another joined by Nate Waters and Chris Dadge.

One of the city’s busiest and consistently excellent musicians, Waters spends equal amounts of time in Calgary’s jazz and indie rock scenes. He fronts his own angular art-pop project Eye of Newt, plays in Temps, Victrix, Ryan Bourne & The Plant City Band, and Samantha Savage Smith’s backing band. In the jazz world, he gets around equally mightily, and can be seen most Tuesday nights at Betty Lou’s Jazz Library with his own quartet. Aside from ripping on most members of the woodwind family, he can also handle most rhythm section duties with equal aplomb. His solo set on this night will likely involve saxophones, pedals, and other electronic goodies.
