Okay, I live in Calgary...so this is Nickelback country as far as bands go. We're very supportive of our indy bands. My manager at work, his brother has a band with a CD out. The band's called Jolene's Drum and the album is Red September. For now the CD is just available in Calgary, but it's red-hot right now...people are loving it. So, visit www.jolenesdrum.com and check out the title track, it's available for download there. If you like it, hopefully the online store'll be up soon so you can pick up the album. If anybody else wants to shamelessly promote a band...DO IT HERE AND NOW! PEACE, LOVE AND CANADIAN BEER!
Given the fact that we are recovering from a major wild fire that took out over 200 homes, some of which were owned by people my girlfriend knows personally and one of which was owned by a faculty member who was on her Ph.D.
