First of all, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU for all the congratulatory messages we’ve been receiving since the big announcement on Friday. We are still just amazed by it all, and to be able to share this victory with all of our friends and family means the world to us. We have definitely been feeling the love from all across Canada, and the world! So thank you! Here’s a little recap of our run in the CBC Music Searchlight Contest from Andrew aka Gunnarolla:
As you know, one of the prizes for winning Searchlight was an opportunity to play at the CBC Music Festival in Burnaby, BC on June 14! We’re so looking forward to opening for some amazing Canadian bands, including Tegan and Sara, Spoon, The Arkells, Hannah Georgas, Wake Owl, Chad Vangaalen, Dan Mangan and more. If you’re in the Vancouver area, we would absolutely love to see you there!
On Friday, shortly after we found out about our Searchlight win, we got offered a spot at Harvest Sun Festival in Kelwood, MB! We’re so excited to be part of this grassroots art and music festival! We’ll be playing on Sunday, August 17 at 5:30pm. See all you Manitobans there!
And last but not least, we’re going to be heading through Thunder Bay this summer on July 23 to play for the Summer in the Parks Series! We love Thunder Bay (one of the Contest Inception winners hails from there!) and we can’t wait to come back and play this amazing city event!
We’ve got lots more of exciting shows coming up this summer that we’ll be announcing in the next few weeks, so keep in touch! For all the details on our upcoming tour through Alberta and BC, head to our Facebook page. See you soon!
Until next time,
