We had a fantastic sendoff at The New Black Centre in our hometown of Calgary. Our wonderful family, friends and fans came out in full force to help us launch the Spidersaurusrex Tour. Hitting the stage with us was the lovely Kieran Strange and Calgary band Ten Cent Pistols.

Thank you for your continued support, we could not do this without our friends, family, and fans. As a reward for being loyal fans, we will be giving our mailing list early and free access to all of our music in the coming year.
Thanks to everyone who came out on Friday night. We had fantastic acoustic night with local performers Justin Wilson and Taylor Lang, Aislinn Grant and Nicki McRae. Brett McCrady from Vancouver could be one of our new favourite artist. He threw a great set together and was a total blast to hang with all night.

Best of all was the incredible food bank support from all our fans. We were able to raise 105 pounds of non-perishable food items. Nice work team!!!
