Bonus Pick Of The Day

There’s a pretty sweet double-bill happening at O’Hanlon’s Pub tonight. Taking the stage will be Saskatoon indie rockers Foam Lake and Winnipeg alt-rockers Federal Lights.

Foam Lake showcased at JunoFest in April and at Break-Out West last September, and should be familiar to Regina audiences. Federal Lights is less well-known. In the video below, they’re a two-piece. But on their new album We Were Found In The Fog six musicians are credited. So I’m not sure what size the band will be when they play tonight.

It’s a Tuesday night, so things should get going at O’Hanlon’s around 10:30 p.m. To whet your appetite here’s Federal Lights with an acoustic version of “This Would Be A Fine Job To Retire From”:

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
