Opening for King Dylan at the Rec Room, 1rst opening act right away at 9.
I decided I wanted to participate in the cities activities as much as possible. When I stumbled on this event, I knew that I needed to represent the music scene in Calgary as much as in this awesome opportunity. Come on down and visit my "Musical Cafe" parking space downtown YYC on September 15th! More details below.
What is PARK(ing) Day?
It’s an annual global event where citizens, artists and designers collaborate to transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spots – temporary public spaces.
Taking place in Victoria Park along 1st Street between 12 and 14 Avenues S.W. from noon to 6 p.m., the event involves the temporary closure of several parking spots, all of which will be remodeled into interactive exhibits that you can explore at your leisure.
We encourage everyone to visit these temporarily reinvented spaces and see the variety of innovative ways that Calgary’s urban spaces are used.

X92.9 Calgary's Alternative Xposure Show presents: Scenic Route to Alaska with Boreal Sons and Hayden McHugh live on May 11th at The Gateway!
SCENIC ROUTE TO ALASKA https://www.scenicroutetoalaska.com/
Substance and accessibility are often considered opposing forces when it comes to pop music, making it all the more impressive when a band like Scenic Route to Alaska so effortlessly delivers ample doses of both.
The easygoing Edmonton-based trio, comprised of Trevor Mann on lead vocals and guitar, drummer Shea Connor, and bassist Murray Wood, effortlessly weaves catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements – instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again. It’s a coveted combination within the crowded sphere of indie rock – and one that’s rarely the product of anything but time, talent, and heaps of hard work. Of course, Scenic Route to Alaska are no strangers to any of those.
In early 2016, the band entered Monarch Studios in Vancouver with Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to cut the 11 tracks comprising Long Walk Home, their latest LP.
BOREAL SONS http://www.borealsons.com/
Boreal Sons are an art-rock band whose imaginative compositions are as emotive as they are intelligent, pairing sweeping instrumental arrangements with vivid lyrical imagery and pop-inspired melodies.
As a band Boreal Sons have already cultivated a maturity to their sound that defies the relatively young age of its members, and it seems clear that they have crafted their compositions with the intent to form a meaningful and thoughtful connection between musician and listener. At times powerful and explosive, at times calm and simple, Boreal Sons’ music overflows with ingenuity and integrity, harboring at once elation and dread but never once losing faith.
HAYDEN MCHUGH http://www.haydenmchugh.com/
Hayden McHugh is a singer-songwriter born and raised in Calgary, Canada.
Hayden grew up in the suburbs of the city where he trained in classical piano and stage performance - this is where his roots in music began. He began songwriting and producing at the age of 16 and starting writing his first studio album, “Lion’s Breath” at the age of 18. Released in early 2017, he is excited to start sharing it with the world, and to start working on the next EP! Inspired by artists like Bibi Bourelly and Jon Bellion, his music rings out with a powerful and punchy melody and beautifully arranged piano and guitar.
