#NowPlaying: Curated by Bad Animal

Bad Animal presents: our lil playlist. Included are some of our favourite bands/artists that were formed and based in Calgary, both new and old. I’ll begin by saying: damn, that was hard to narrow it down! But we did our best to get some content that perked our ears up in the past, and who we are looking forward to hearing more from in the future.

One word… Women. That band laid down what was cool for a lot of us, and a lot of Calgary! To us, they still feel fresh and exciting even since their breakup in 2012. Some of it’s members went on to form Preoccupations, which is an obvious choice that we also added to the list! Another artist that changed the idea of local music to us was the very talented Chad VanGaalen. His international success was incredibly eye opening and dream inspiring for us – a shed of light for the Calgary music scene that has only gotten bigger and better since.

The back 10 songs includes bands and artists that are not local, but get listened to day after day at the good old Bad Animal House.

Thanks for including us Local Drop, and enjoy the playlist! See you all at a local venue soon!
