Winnipeg musician and storyteller Raine Hamilton believes music should be accessible to all and has been putting this into practice in both her music and her performances.
From September 2014 to June 2015, Cootie Club offered an alternative gathering space in Winnipeg’s music scene.

Ancient Shapes’ debut record starts fast and ends faster. This quick-paced album throws the listener straight into the band’s hands, giving barely enough time for a breather.
4th Curtis has created a wonderfully clever and theatrical indie pop album with their 2017 debut full-length, I Won The Pageant.
On Jan. 24, Calgary’s FOONYAP (the stage moniker of musician Foon Yap) will grace the stage of the Ballroom to open Big Fun Festival with their vulnerable and mesmerizing experimental folk electronic music.
Big Fun Festival, a showcase of mostly local artists, is an incentive to get out of the house during the cold winter months.
Winnipeg exists in an odd cultural space; we’re self-deprecating but have fierce hometown pride.
Just in time to begin hibernating for the winter, Beverly Tender deliver another album full of brilliant and well-informed angular indie rock.
This is yet another beautiful release from Chicago-based Orindal Records.

Half Moon Market // Cold Specks // Pitaloosie Saila at the WAG // Holiday movies at the Park // Terra Botanica // New Constellations at WECC
Winnipeg country music fans will soon have a new album to help keep them dancing through the winter months.
A neo-folk duo from our very own city, The New Customs is made up of locals Emma Cloney and Dale Brown.
As a whole, Soft Sounds from Another Planet is badass, fun, but also heartbreaking.
Royal Canoe fans have cause to celebrate.
Congratulations to Tina Keeper // Double, Double, Toil and Trouble // Sister Cycle // Local Governor General finalists // Mosaic family programs // Seeking: musicians
Propagandhi has always been a political band. Since their inception in 1986, the group has embraced an anarcho-punk ethos centred on social justice that seems especially relevant in 2017. However, bassist and vocalist Todd Kowalski says that 2017 is business as usual for Propagandhi.
