Pick of the Day: Living With Lions

As James Brotheridge observed in a post a couple of weeks ago, this Vancouver-based pop-punk band attracted a bit of notoriety recently when newly reappointed Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore took the band to task for its album Holy Shit.

Moore did more than that, of course. He also contacted the head of Factor, which is the funding agency that provides support to Canadian musicians to record CDs and produce videos, to express his outrage that the organization was fulfilling its mandate or something I guess.

Tonight at the Club at 7 p.m., Living With Lions is playing with Prom Night In Black and White, Inside Riot, The Hunters and A Perfect Punchline. Tickets are $10 adv., $12 door.

To close, here’s a mega eight-minute long video opus from the band for its 2010 song “Later is Better”.

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.
