Enter March, and we’ve got some good rap to start the month off right. Young Braised of Vancouver’s wavy rap fame, may make an appearance Friday night at Amigos. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll check the set. To add to the great news, Open Mike Eagle signed with Mellow Music Group (no not Maybach Music Group) and is set to release 3 albums over the next 2 years, first of which is to be Dark Comedy. I’m hyped. We also got some new videos. Tune in! Continue reading
Living on the prairies means we all have a deep and natural connection with the grain our farmers produce, which is the inspiration behind Saskatoon’s newest and most distinctive bread and pastry shop, The Night Oven Bakery. Continue reading
With the Academy Awards set for this upcoming Sunday, it’s prime time to look at the films up for the major awards that evening. Instead of offering my own picks for what will win, I thought it’d be useful to look at each individual Best Picture nominee. What worked in them, what didn’t, and which one should walk away with the top prize on Sunday?
Saskatoon’s festival coordinators are back at their desks, and we’re starting to see some recaps and promos to get us excited for the summer to come. Below are video teasers recently released from Saskatoon’s two most premiere music-centric festivals, The Saskatchewan Jazz Festival and MOSO Fest.
This video done by Sica films takes me back to my favourite week of summer and some of the shows that I worked hard on with Spareparts to present some added experience. (How fun was that Metric show?? And Lee Fields! And A Tribe Called Red??) Well done with the time lapses, aerial shots, and music choice in this one, Sica!
And this video by our friends at PAVED Arts was just released this weekend shows off the good times and excellent speakers from the growing indie music & interactive seminar festival, Moso Fest (love their new website). I cannot wait for summer!!!
Expect to see Spareparts (and some of our crafty party ideas) at both festivals this year again!

Many of you may know the name Chad Coombs. You may know him as the lovable bartender, the skateboarder, the photographer, or the artist. What you probably don’t know about Chad is that he’s appeared in over 25 different publications (oft times getting the cover spread), shown at galleries across the world and hangs out with David LaChapelle when he visits New York City. Don’t ask Chad about it though because all you will get as a response is a very modest telling of a laundry list of amazing accomplishments. Continue reading
At the end of the first episode of Season Two of House of Cards, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) looks straight at the camera and asks if the viewer thinks he’d forgotten them. We know he hasn’t but it doesn’t make the aside any less gratifying. This comes at the end of an episode that saw the shocking elimination of a major character and the Underwoods conquering their main adversaries from the first season. In one episode, House of Cards sweeps away many of the cards from Season One and reshuffles the deck. The first round is over, and now that everyone knows the rules, it’s full steam ahead for the Underwoods and the show. Continue reading
Little late on the post, but I came with a pile of brand new Canadian rap videos. Factor, Evil and Def3 are set to rock the stage at Amigos this Friday, so make sure we see you there! Rewind will also be knocking some tracks out with DJ Known on the decks behind him. Enjoy the links and lock your radio dial down tonight for our show at 9PM on 90.5FM! Continue reading
Maybe it’s because my sweetheart and I won’t be spending Valentine’s Day together or because I’m a pretty vocal anti-Valentiner, but I think Palentine’s Day – spending the day of love with your pals – is a great alternative to the traditional wine-and-dine with a significant other.
Show your love to the one you love? More like the ones you love! Continue reading
One of Saskatoon’s most prominent (and talented) couples, Ash and Elsa – AKA We Were Lovers – will be playing a Valentines show at Amigos tomorrow night. Well doesn’t that just make a whole lot of sense? If you’ve got your Valentines evening only planned as far as dinner, the WWL show (with Saskatoon’s Economics as an opener) fits the bill for the drinking and dancing portion of your evening.
