(If the description of this event sounds like a foreign language to you- you might be getting too old for this…)
If this event sounds like it is in your realm of interest, or if your just looking for something original to do on Saturday night be sure to come out and continue to support local musicians and this non profit organization.
The cool guys at Third Street Effort are delivering another big double bill to Medicine Hat!

The past twelve months have been a labour of love for musician Sarah Cripps as she’s been producing her debut album Change. “You can only make your debut album once and it was really important for me to make it be something I could look back on and think is a real representation of who I am,” says Cripps. “It has evolved really naturally.”
The natural evolution of the release is also a direct mirror of how the 21-year-old country musician has allowed her burgeoning career to evolve. She began playing music when she was just nine years old and before she was 13 had been offered a deal by a major record label.
“It was a really incredible thing, and I was really grateful for it, but it just felt like the whole process would have been too rushed,” says Cripps of the deal, and what prompted her to ultimately walk away from it to continue her career as a completely independent musician.
“I’m really proud to be putting this record out on my own,” she affirms. “It’s been a really long journey, but I have put together a team who believe in me and have helped me make what I think is the best possible record I can make.”
A modern blend of country, folk and pop music, Cripps and her longtime collaborator/producer David Martin enlisted help from some of the most well-known country musicians to play on the record including Chris McHugh, drummer for country music star Keith Urban; Jimmie Lee Sloas, the bass player for Carrie Underwood; and Tom Bukovac, a guitar player for Sheryl Crow.
“There are literally some of the best session players in this industry playing on my album, which made it an even more exciting experience,” she said. “Now I get to go across Canada playing shows which breathes a very new and different life into the songs.”
Cripps will perform on February 12 at Inspire Café, 675 2nd Street S.E. The show starts at 1 p.m. CDs will be available for purchase at the show or online, visit www.sarahcripps.com for more information.

‘Great singing, tones, playing, songs, and refreshing variety’ writes Blues Revue Magazine about Kelowna’s own, Poppa Dawg.
Poppa is a blues man with energy and enthusiasm that runs deep. From low-down Chicago blues to up-town Rock’n’Roll, classic covers to rockin’ originals, the dance floor gets no rest. With three critically acclaimed CDs to his credit, this Dawg is still on the prowl.
For over a decade, Poppa and his band ‘Dogskin Suit’ have been winning awards (including ‘Best Local Band’ and ‘Honour in the Arts’), and world-wide airplay, including the nation-wide CBC radio favourite ‘Saturday Night Blues’ with Holger Peterson.
Having shared the stage with JUNO award winners Jeff Healey, Donnie Walsh and Chuck Jackson (Downchild Blues Band), Jim Byrnes, Powder Blues, Fathead, and other greats such as Sonny Rhodes, Tony Coleman (B.B. King), Donnie McDougall (The Guess Who), Danny McBride (Chris DeBurg), he has the stage experience of a true journeyman.
Straight up hard-core blues fans will love Poppa’s ability to channel Albert King and Howlin’ Wolf while fans of swinging blues will dig the influence of Duke Robillard, JW-Jones and Little Charlie Baty. With slinky grooves reminiscent of Dr. John and the hard-hitting edge of Stevie Ray Vaughan, guitar fanatics will be at the edge of their seats as Poppa Dawg delivers each song as if he is living and breathing it from the inside out.
The Calgary Sun calls this act “an unbelievably talented group”.
Memphis to Motown. This is Poppa Dawg.
The Pack A.D rock duo beatin’ up their instruments.
We all know that tremendously skilled rock duos are the flavour de jour; there’s something refreshingly simple about the face melting, ear bleeding power generated by only two performers playing their hardest. Enter The Pack A.D.
This Vancouver-based, all girl power-duo has risen in standing to make top-15 “tag teams to see” lists alongside The White Stripes, Black Keys and the Kills, selling out shows across Canada. Comprised of drummer Maya Miller and guitarist/vocalist Becky Black, we’re bringing the Pack A.D’s unique, belligerent mash of blues, punk, and garage rock to the Hat on October 5th at Schooner’s Pub (a rock show at the legion? Yes, please).
The Pack A.D’s third and latest album title Unpersons hints unmistakeably at something fierce, something feminist and something guaranteed to leave you yelling “I can’t hear you!” at your friends in the cab ride home after the show. You can thank us when our ears stop ringing.
As if it wasn’t awesome enough… We’re pleased to announce local, 5 piece rock goddesses, ‘Rainbow Snake’ will add to the “high power female” dynamic, and test your eardrums first!
