About Agriculture Club:

It’s been more than two decades, a million miles, and a mountain of empty Pilsner cans since Agriculture Club hit the road in a rusty van purchased from an ostrich farm outside of Gleichen, Alberta (true story). If they haven’t crossed your path yet, try imagining Johnny Cash, AC/DC, Merle Haggard and the Ramones — with their radios blaring — crashing into each other at an unmarked crossroads somewhere between the sin-filled city and surrounding green farmland.

Songs like “The Ballad of Pilsner Beer” and “Rumblin’ Down” have earned Agriculture Club country-punk-legend status. Years of high-octane live shows have built them an undeniable, good-time reputation. Today, they’re one of the only bands you’ll find equally comfortable sharing the stage with punk originators DOA and country staples like Corb Lund.

This is a band with a shameless penchant for puns and no shortage of irreverent humor, having firmly prove n that with their debut EP Smell the Dairy Air and its subsequent full-length, Farmageddon. Fresh material is on its way to follow their third album The Horse Always Gets it First (Transistor 66 Records). Inevitably, someone who hears these new songs will ask: “Is this rock? Or is this country?” And Agriculture Club’s answer will be “yes.”

“Fuses the blitzkrieg bop energy of early punk rock with the kind of country where you can smell the mud and the blood and the beer.” – The Georgia Straight

“Calgary’s Agriculture Club sow their sonic seeds with the hard-hitting ferocity of a drunken tractor fight. The band maintains a keen balance between rip-snorting rock and wailing twang…without getting bogged down in formulaic ground. A prevailing element of reverence indicates these guys take their rock a little more seriously than appearances may suggest.” – Exclaim Magazine

About The Bigfoot Rocketship:

Calgary’s own Bigfoot Rocketship plays instrumental surf music of the most primal kind. With riffs like a surfer shooting the curl and chords like crashing waves, the five-member BFRS have been wowing crowds for more than a decade. Their reverb-drenched three-guitar interplay will have you spellbound, yet moving your feet. Kowabunga from Cowtown!
