Pick Of The Day: July Talk

In October this Toronto-based blues rock band fronted by Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay released their debut CD. I ended up reviewing it for Prairie Dog and gave it a favourable dog count. For me, it had a ton of raw energy and sexuality and was a good listen.

In a post he did once the review was published, though, James Brotheridge expressed misgivings about the band based on the ragged quality of Dreimanis’s lead vocals.

That’s the back story to date. Tonight, July Talk are in town to play a show at the SCES Club with two solid local acts Ink Road and the Fortunate Isles. Tickets are $10. If you check out James’ post you can see the video for “Paper Girl”. And here’s the video for the second single off the album “Let Her Know”:


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.

One thought on “Pick Of The Day: July Talk”

  1. James should park his misgivings. It was a great show and everyone should’ve gone. They’ll be back. Don’t miss them!
