The Journey to Sled Island: A Band Fundraiser

Travelling to Sled is quite costly, so Sled Island, Animal Productions, and CFUV 101.9 FM Victoria's Campus Community Radio Station are putting on a show for bands to get them some funds to make the trip a little easier.

"Hailing from the cold, damp Pacific Northwest is Balacade, a project helmed by Andrew Reynolds, lover of David Bowie, distorted reality and the changing seasons. His music is subdued, electronic-infused, alternative indie rock; it’s unassuming, oozing with agitation, yet gentle. It’s an exercise in blessed contradiction, the soundtrack to your comedown."

"x–Besnard Lakes Kees Dekker still possesses his former band’s cosmic consciousness and reverb worship, but this collaboration with ex–Key of K guitar slinger, Aimée Van Drimmelen, finds them expanding their world to embrace paisley underground pop and Kraut propulsion. Turn off your mind, relax, and ride a wooden ship to inner space on a river of lysergic fuzz. This elevator goes to the 13th floor — and beyond."

"Soaked in effects and overt in its love for the Buddy Holly and Dick Dale side of sun drenched, surf rockabilly, Jons makes music for lovers, dreamers, and dancers. There is no rock machismo here — instead you’ll find peculiar rock that’s disarmingly simple, yet never prosaic."

Sled Island is a Music Festival in Calgary, AB and runs from June 18th-June22nd, 2014.
Stay tuned for the festival schedule announcement May 27th.
