Pick of the Day: SaskTel Summer Invasion

Second Xtreme-themed event to be held in Regina in the last month or so. In case you missed the first one, here’s a link to a story Carle Steel did on it in our June 3 issue.

Unlike Queer City Cinema, I’ve never actually attended the Sasktel Summer Invasion so I don’t know how high on the testosterone scale it measures. Certainly, most of the sports do incorporate a significant element of macho bravado. But overall, I don’t think it comes anywhere near Monster Truck territory. Monster trucks being perhaps  the most innane spectacle ever devised by our species.

Apart from the Xtreme sports angle, Sasktel Summer Invasion also features live music. This year, bands include Theory of a Deadman, Marianas Trench, Stereos, Jordan Cook, Swollen Members and a special mystery guest. For a taste of what’s in store for Regina courtesy of this individual check out this link.  Funky, eh!
