We’re excited to announce that we’re hosting three live performances at the station this week! They will also be broadcast live on 101.9 FM and online.
Here’s the schedule:

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2-3 PM: Iceberg Ferg – Broadcast on Albion

““It’s an alternate identity from the strength of a certain time period of my life, a thing I can use to be creative.” It may have started out as just a nickname he earned for wearing two purple shirts to a recording session, but the Purple Prince has manifested itself into an alter-ego for Fergus MacConnell, more commonly known as Iceberg Ferg. The Pacific artist is known for blending country and blues with his falsetto, and is no newcomer to pseudonyms – he’s been Iceberg Ferg for the majority of his performing life” (Words by Sachin Turakhia for Discorder Magazine)

Wednesday, March 23rd, 1-2 PM: Smash Boom Pow – Broadcast on Permanent Rain Radio

“They say honesty is the best policy, a policy since adopted by rock and rollers Smash Boom Pow as their mission statement. With this phrase serving as their unofficial motto, the band’s sincerity is what largely sets them apart from others. With a lineup of guitar, drums, and bass, the trio are bringing originality back in the most obvious way — by playing music they themselves enjoy” (Words by Maya-Roisin Slater for Discorder Magazine)

Saturday, March 26th, 4-5 PM: Nap Eyes – Broadcast hosted by Andy Resto

“Halifax’s Nap Eyes cash in on the promise of intelligent quiet rock songs with glimmers of psychedelia drowned in Alexander Keith’s that their debut Whine of the Mystic gave us. However, Thought Rock Fish Scale is a less rollicking, airier, and more meditative affair than their debut. For their sophomore release Nap Eyes traded in the dark alleys of Montreal for the north coast of Nova Scotia, where they recorded the entire album live to four-track tape. And this is definitely an album that is shaped by its setting. It’s as if the sea breeze eroded away everything superfluous and left us with a raw set of literate guitar pop songs” (Words by Erik Coates for Discorder Magazine)
