Calgary Folk Music Festival’s fourth annual Block Heater

Words by Sara Kuefler. With the frigid temperatures that have been locked in for the past couple weeks, many of us have made good use of our vehicle’s block heaters. Just as the recent cold snap begins to release slightly, we will be able to look forward to a much more exciting type of “Block Heater”.  The fourth installment of Calgary Folk Festival’s Block Heater music festival, presented by ATB, occurs February 21 – 23, 2019 and features 28 musical acts spread over four venues, including Studio Bell, Festival Hall, The New Central Library, and The King Eddy.

Jae Sterling: “Jaguar” EP release

Photos and words by Will Geier. The much-anticipated Jaguar, Jae Sterling’s latest EP, is about to drop. It’s unapologetic, energetic, diverse and creative, and has a driving beat behind it to get people engaged, moving and rowdy. I stopped by the Th0t Police headquarters to talk to Sterling about the inspiration for Jaguar, his growth over the last year, what’s next, as well as more about the collective Th0t Police.

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.
