2013/08/31 Show: Calgary, Alberta, Canada: X-Fest

We have returned to the rugged Western plains and mountains of Canada to do our part to supply rock and roll to the needy peoples. They have developed an excellent way for bands to do this out here in Alberta, namely the XFest. The XFest is an annual 2 day multiband music extravaganza that's held on the historic grounds of Fort Calgary. This year we are teamed up with Awolnation, Mother Mother, Passion Pit and Blink 182, though another group of bands plays here tomorrow, when we go to Edmonton for the sister festival, Sonic Boom. Weve played shows with Awolnation and Passion Pit pretty recently and its fun to be out and see them again. We toured with Blink 182 in 2009 so its cool to run into our old touring partners and SoCal brethren again.

We last played the XFest two years ago and it was a blast, especially watching the pro wrestling matches near the stage! Hopefully we can recapture the magic this time. See you out there in Fort Calgary, people!

    Alas the wrestling has moved away from the stage...
    But to help the mood, I can pick a fight with the first person I see wearing spandex.
