Rockin’ 4 Dollars Turns Four

Story and photo by Aron Diaz. Some things just go hand in hand: peanut butter and jelly, Mulder and Scully, and Wednesday nights and Rockin’ 4 Dollars. Rockin’ 4 Dollars has been a staple in the Calgary music scene for quite some time and are having their fourth anniversary show – or the “champagne birthday” as organizer BJ Downey playfully calls it – on Feb. 6 at Broken City, which will be played by a special, handpicked line-up of bands that have actively supported the event throughout the years.

We reached out to the band to get a glimpse into how they are navigating the music scene in Calgary.

Story and photos by Claire Bourgeois. The very first time I met Priya and Bagya Ramesh, it was at a spoken word open mic night. I was serving at Koi at the time when the sisters took to the stage. They played a backtrack through the stage sound system and blew everyone away with what they were putting down.
