Hailing from sunny Los Angeles, Intronaut is progressive/experimental metal band. The quartet has been around since 2004, and have released five studio albums — the most recent being The Direction of Last Things in November 2015.

On Wednesday April 6 Intronaut (the band’s name is apparently supposed to inspire people to embark on inner journeys when listening to their prog, jazz-inflected songs) will be in town to play a show at the Exchange.

Tucson metal band North is also on the bill. You can get ticket info on the Exchange website, and to give you a sense of what to expect here’s the video for the first single off Intronaut’s latest album called Fast Worms:

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.
