Pick of the Day: The Besnard Lakes

Here’s a link to a couple of stories from our Sept. 22 issue by Emmet Matheson that more or less cover all the bases for this dynamite show tonight at the Exchange by Montreal rockers The Besnard Lakes (pictured) with Malajube and The Soft Province.

To give you a taste, here’s video from 2010 of The Besnard Lakes performing “And This Is What We Call Progress”. And as an added bonus, here’s the 2009 video for Malajube’s song “Luna”.


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.
